Folks flock to ‘Mary Poppins’ in the forest

Looks like it’s going to be a big four weekends for the Mountaineers Players and their Kitsap Forest Theater production of “Mary Poppins.”

Opening-day performances I’ve hiked down to in past Memorial Day weekends have been sparsely attended, often owing to less-than-perfect weather. But the show on May 24 drew upwards of 4000522_KSFE_Poppins6 — despite cool conditions and overcast skies — roughly twice what opening days normally attract.

And you shouldn’t expect the throngs to get any smaller. The weather should continue to be decent or better, and the draw of the “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” musical won’t get any weaker.

The cast is mostly from Seattle, but look for Bremerton’s  Gary Spees in a couple of supporting roles.

A review of the May 24 show is here:
