Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre will sing in the New Year with a special return engagement of the Sing-A-Long version of Walt Disney’s classic "Mary Poppins," from January 11th through the 31st. The film will be projected digitally using fully restored film elements and a re-mastered soundtrack featuring state-of-the-art audio technology.
Audiences are encouraged to dress as their favorite characters from the film, and to lend their voices to the classic soundtrack (as the words to the songs are projected up on the screen). Each performance will include a live appearance by Mary Poppins herself. As an added bonus for the opening night show, (Thursday, January 11th at 6:30 pm), Academy Award®-winning songwriter Richard Sherman (who wrote the songs with his brother, Robert Sherman) will introduce the film and perform some of his classic tunes from the film.
Daily showtimes are 10:00 am, 1:10 pm, 4:20 pm, 7:30 pm (plus 10:15 pm on Friday and Saturday nights only). Tickets are available at the box office, on-line at www.elcapitantickets.com or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. Special group rates for parties of 20 or more are available by calling 1-818-845-3110.
If you get a chance to see Robert Sherman you should definitely go. And send me a trip report!
