The new UK tour of hit musical Mary Poppins heads for Manchester's Palace Theatre next April (April 9-May 17, 2025).

Acclaimed Australian stars Stefanie Jones and Jack Chambers reprise their roles as Mary and Bert, having both received critical acclaim and nightly standing ovations for their performances in the recent Australian production. Further casting is still to be announced.

Based on the stories of P L Travers and the Disney film, the story of the world’s favourite nanny at the hoiuse on Cherry Tree Lane had its stage premiere 20 years ago. Producer and co-creator Cameron Mackintosh said: “It is, amazingly, already 20 years since Mary Poppins first landed on stage and started spreading Pamela Travers' magical stories around the world.

"Our recent Australian production discovered two of the most delightful Mary and Berts ever – Stefanie Jones and Jack Chambers – whom I'm thrilled to be bringing to the United Kingdom and Ireland to star in this spectacular new national tour."

Mary Poppins has original music and lyrics by the Sherman brothers, Richard and Robert, with new songs and additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The book is by Julian Fellowes and this production is co-directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne and directed by Richard Eyre.
