Maryville Music Academy Is A Family Safety Plan Music Academy! 

We are an Official Safety Plan Music Academy! 

In order to keep our students, staff, and teachers safe, we have implemented the Family Safety Plan in our school! This includes glass windows on lesson rooms to foster transparency between teachers and parents, full-time office staff so that students and teachers are never left unsupervised, requiring extensive background checks of all of our teachers and staff, security cameras in all rooms, and an open-door policy for parents, which means that they’re always invited to sit in on their child’s lessons.

Primary Players, along with MMA and title sponsor, LeConte Wealth Management, proudly presents MARY POPPINS, JR! 

Your favorite practically perfect nanny takes center stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious adventure based on the award-winning Broadway musical and classic Walt Disney film. 

Mary Poppins JR. features songs by Richard and Robert Sherman. The Sherman Brothers wrote more motion-picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history. 

The jack-of-all-trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it." 

Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins JR. is an enchanting mixture of irresistible stories, unforgettable songs, and breathtaking dance numbers. 

Directed by John Cherry, Music Direction by Kristy Weekley Giles, and Choreography by Hilary Barrett. Mary Poppins JR. features 36 young actors between the ages of 8 and 18. 

This Primary Players production of Mary Poppins JR will be staged at Blount - Faith Promise Church at 539 North Foothills Plaza Drive, Maryville.
