Young Artists Ensemble will present Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s “Mary Poppins Jr.” from May 3 to 19 at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts, 403 W. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

The show is directed by Georgeanne Lees with musical direction by Susan Trewory- Culkins.

“Mary Poppins Jr.” is the tale of a no-nonsense nanny with a heart of gold and a bit of magic who helps a family struggling to break free of their assigned roles.

With the help of a dancing chimney sweep, Mary Poppins turns the Banks family household upside down on its way to right side up.

The play has original music and lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman and book by Julian Fellowes, with new songs and additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

The play was co-created by Cameron Mackintosh, based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film.

“Mary Poppins Jr.” is the final production in Young Artists Ensemble’s 38th annual Family Theatre Season, the “Season of Unexpected Magic.”

Tickets are $19 for adults and $16 for children, students and seniors. A 10% discount is available for groups of 10 or more for a single performance. Parking is free.
