Mary Poppins comes to life in Hershey

Posted: Updated:
HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) -

Everyone's favorite nanny is floating down to the midstate this week. The musical "Mary Poppins" is now playing at the Hershey Theatre.

The show contains a cast of more than 30 people. They travel the country, playing a different city every week.

The cast and crew decided to have some fun with James Crummel. They transformed him into Bert the Chimney Sweep from head to toe - right down to the soot on his face.

Actor Con O'Shea-Creal gave James some tips, including how to walk and how to carry the broom. He says he's excited to be part of a story he's always loved.

"To tell a story that you really enjoy telling and you feel has a lot of heart and that you hope that the audience can walk away with something at the end of the night, it's exhilarating every night," he said.

Mary Poppins will be playing through Sunday. For times and ticket information, just go to hersheytheatre.com.
