Mary Poppins Production:
“Faultless, seamless, pure joy, and utterly brilliant in every way. The lead parts were incredible, the chorus singing and dancing West-End worthy. The production immaculate.” This was just one of the countless plaudits that streamed in after two nights of Mary Poppins magic, when every single member of the prep school was either on stage, or behind it, in a remarkable production which many described as the ‘best ever’ at Beeston – and they should know, many in the audience being Old Beestonians themselves.
It was all the more impressive with a split cast where the principle characters brought their own individual strengths and characters to their night in the spotlight. It was impossible to make a call of which night was better – each one outstanding, thanks to the vision and professionalism of David Lloyd-Peck and the entire team of Beeston staff, including a committed team of Beeston parents (the FoBs) who ensured not a stitch was dropped!
