‘Mary Poppins’ to bow in Australia

Musical will open in Melbourne in July 2010

Tuner “Mary Poppins” will bow in Australia next year, with the show opening in Melbourne in July 2010.

Cameron Mackintosh and Disney Theatrical Prods. produce the musical, which preemed in London and is currently playing on Broadway.

“Poppins” scribe P.L. Travers, who penned the novels on which the show (and the 1964 Disney pic) are based, was born and raised in Oz before she moved to London.

Other international productions of “Poppins” are brewing for Euro cities including Copenhagen, Prague and Stockholm. Incarnations are also being planned for Asian markets.

In addition, “Poppins” has spawned a U.S. tour that recently wrapped a strong-selling 18-week stop in Chicago.
