Reviewer Ed Farolan
I saw Cast 3 last night of this show and I was impressed with the professionalism of these elementary and high school kids perform this 90 minute show led by the talented Claire Bidulka as Mary Poppins. The other young thespians Bryse (Bert), Linden Smith (George Banks), Rosalind East (Winifred Banks), McKayla Carse (Jane Banks), and William Marenych (Michael Banks) showed the audience that they´re ready for professional theatre. The supporting cast was also impressive with their singing and dancing. To boot, the pacing was close to excellent. The efficiency in which the production flowed smoothly with the chsnge of scenery and costumes was impressive.
Based on the classic P.L. Travers stories and the1964 Walt Disney film, Mary Poppins, Jr. promises to delight audiences young and not-so-old. Delta Youth Theatre’s four different casts feature some 80 students from Delta, Surrey, Richmond and Langley. The company is led by co-artistic directors Tony Barton and Tracy Neff, and is accompanied by a mega talented student creative and production team.
Kudos to the actors and production staff for a job well done! .
