A mysterious happening? No just the set of Mary Poppins bumping into the Ipswich Civic Centre.
Key production team members Bruce Noy (Technical Director), Jonathan Johns (Staging Director) and Madeleine Johns (Director) from the RMT Mary Poppins team were there today to help our colleagues from Ipswich Musical Theatre Company (and CLOC) to accomplish the mission ahead of opening night of Mary Poppins this Saturday September 12th. Chookas to director Ruth Gabriel and President Ken Mundt from IMTC and the cast and crew for Saturday night!!
RMT are getting VERY excited about Mary Poppins coming to Redcliffe in March 2016. We will be using the CLOC set and costumes - so helping out our colleagues at their bump-in will be really helpful when we come to our bump-in late February (only 5 and a half months away!) We have taken lots of pictures – to help us remember what to do when we unpack the container! But we will have the wonderful Bernard and Gemma from CLOC to show us the way.
There are SO many interesting and intriguing set pieces and props for this production – it really is “A Jolly Holiday with Mary”. But we won’t spoil the magic for you by revealing how Mary does all her amazing tricks – you’ll just have to come to the Redcliffe Cultural Centre March 4 to 20 in 2016 to see for yourself!
