Mary Poppins Exhibit in Wenham - Opening TODAY

Do you love Mary Poppins?  Did you see the movie, Saving Mr. Banks and want more?  Here is an opportunity for you, right here on the North Shore.

 A Spoonful of Sugar
Thompson Gallery
February 8 – May 11*
Discover the magical world of Mary Poppins as we celebrate the
50th anniversary of this classic Disney family film. Based on
the books by P. L. Travers, Disney’s musical film Mary Poppins
revolves around the Banks family and their nanny, who blows
into London “on the East Wind” in 1910 and takes the family on a
series of adventures while teaching them lessons about life and
love along the way. Explore a whimsical 1910 nursery, climb on
Admiral Boom’s house-ship, make your own chalk drawings like
Mary’s friend Bert does, and see how much fun it can be to do
chores and tidy up the nursery if you just add “a spoonful of sugar.”
The opening of A Spoonful of Sugar has been rescheduled to
Saturday, February 8, 2014 due to the recent snow storm.
