Have a look at the audition piece and song below to get some extra practice in before the big day!


Mary: Ahem!  You are the father of Jane and Michael Banks, are you not? (To the back of Mr. Banks. He turns, surprised by her tone of voice and doesn’t answer) I said… you are the father of Jane and Michael Banks?

Mr Banks: Well… yes… I mean…. Uh…. Have you brought your references? May I see them please?

Mary Poppins: Oh, I make a point to never give references. A very old fashioned idea to my mind!

Mr Banks: Is that so, well we’ll have to see about that won’t we!

Mary Poppins: (Looking at reconstructed letter) Now then, the qualifications. Item one: A cheery disposition, I am never cross: Two, rosy cheeks, obviously. Item 3: Play games- all sorts. Well I’m sure the children will find my games extremely diverting!

Mr Banks: (looking startled, looks at letter, then at fireplace) That letter, where did you get that from?

Mary Poppins: Item 4 – I am kind, but extremely firm. (Looks to Mr Banks who is looking into the fireplace!) Have you lost something?

Mr Banks: It’s that paper… You see… I Thought…

Mary Poppins: You are George banks are you not?

Mr Banks: Mr Banks! Yes.

Mary: And you did advertise for a nanny yes?

(Mr Banks nods)

Mary: Very well then. I shall require every second Tuesday off.

Mr Banks: Every second Tuesday (still looking confused)?

Mary: (looking doubtful) Hmmm…I believe a trial period would be wise. I’ll give you one week. I’ll know by then. Now I think that I should see the children! Thank You. Close your mouth Michael, please. We are not a cod fish! Well don’t just stand there. Let’s get going. Spit Spot!

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

With tuppence for paper and string

You can have your own set of wings

With your feet on the ground you’re a bird in flight

With your fist holding tight

To the string of your kite




Let’s go fly a kite

Up to the highest height

Let’s go fly a kite

And send it soaring

Up through the atmosphere

Up where the air is clear

Oh, let’s go

Fly a kite
