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
