Under the direction of Lin Holdridge, "Mary Poppins" opens on September 12 at 7:30 p.m. and runs through September 28 on the Main Stage at TBR. A musical based on the stories of P.I. Travers and the Walt Disney film, "Mary Poppins" is the story of the Banks family who live in a big house in London on Cherry Lane. The children, Jane and Michael, have their own ideas about what sort of caretaker they should have, while their parents–and in particular, Mr. Banks–are insistent on someone strict for the job. When a mysterious young woman named Mary Pop- pins appears at their doorstep, the family finds that she's the answer to their prayers, but in the most pe- culiar way. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Mi- chael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "anything can happen if you let it." Tickets are $28 individually, $25 for a group of 10 or more and $20 for Students. Student IDs are re- quired when you come to the theater. There is a $1 handling fee per ticket. Tickets are on sale now in the Box Office.

Guys and Dolls Presented by Runnels School The award-winning musical comedy Guys and Dolls is coming to the stage of the Runnels The- ater for the Performing Arts for three performances in September. Featuring a cast and crew of Runnels faculty, staff, parents, alumni, students entering 9th- 12th grades, and local actors and musicians, Guys and Dolls is the seventh in a series of annual Runnels The- ater community productions. Set in the nightclubs, restaurants and drugstores of after-hours Broadway in the 1930s, the play is populated by a colorful crowd of genial hustlers, gamblers, showgirls and cops. The story follows the action of small-time grifter Nathan Detroit, who runs "the oldest established, permanent foating crap game in New York" as he hunts for a safe place to hold a high stakes dice game. Meanwhile, Sky Masterson, a big time gambler, tries to win a thousand dollar bet with Nathan that he can make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. When the girl turns out to be Miss Sarah Brown, head do-gooder at the Save-a-Soul Mission, things get complicated. 54 r e a d u s o n l i n e a t w w w . c i t y s o c i a l . c o m
