SING-A-LONG MARY POPPINS Exclusive Return Engagement--A Thanksgiving Weekend Regent Tradition!

MARCH-A-LONG in the onstage costume parade in your Mary Poppins inspired costume.

Sing-A-Long Mary Poppins invites audiences of all ages to step in time with Mary, Bert and the gang. For this special engagement, a restored 35mm print of the classic 1964 film has been customized with on-screen lyrics so that audiences can join in the fun by singing along. A movie host will introduce the film and lead the crowd through audience participation activities and demonstrate the use of the complimentary bag of interactive props. To complete the Sing-A-Long Mary Poppins experience, audience members are encouraged to dress as their favorite Mary Poppins character – or in a costume inspired by the movie. The Movie Host will invite everyone in costume to march on stage in the costume parade.

In addition, audiences are encouraged to sing along with some of the best-known and most beloved songs in motion picture history.Adapted from PL Travers' 1934 novel, Mary Poppins premiered in August 1964. "Practically perfect in every way," it earned 13 Academy Award nominations and became Disney's biggest box office success to date. Julie Andrews made Mary Poppins her film debut and nabbed the Oscar, beating out Audrey Hepburn for Best Actress. After 45 years, Mary Poppins continues to pull lasting magic from its cinematic carpet bag of tricks, while reminding new generations how a simple gift of kindness costs merely tuppence.

Sing-A-Long Mary Poppins allows audiences to celebrate the golden age of movies by enjoying this Oscar®-winning film in the fashion in which it was meant to be seen – a grand theatrical setting, fully restored, with a state of the art sound system.

"One of the best evenings of my life." - Marlene Speiler, San Francisco Chronicle
