Pop in to see 'Poppins': Bemidji Community Theater to stage ‘Mary Poppins: The Broadway Musical’
BEMIDJI—While on stage acting as Mary Poppins and Jane Banks—Mary Anderson and Clara Anderson-Cameron—don't have to try very hard.
"It's fun because we already have kind of a relationship, that is, a nanny in charge," said Clara.
The mother and daughter duo are two of the main roles in Bemidji Community Theater's upcoming production of "Mary Poppins: The Broadway Musical."
The musical, based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 11, 12, 18, 19 and 2 p.m. Nov. 13 and 20 at the Chief Theater, 314 Beltrami Ave NW.

The cast, which includes 41 people, is a combination of adults and children, who all have mastered the spelling of "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."
Along with the musical, the theater has also been hosting a "Mary Poppins Spelling Bee." The second written round will be held at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and the oral final round will be held at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Chief Theater.
