Not one to stick around long, Mary Poppins returns to Fair Park for two short weeks. So if you don’t tackle this performance with the same gusto you approach each and every McRib Farewell Tour, then you, sir or ma’am, are a pinhead. This 14-day run is your opportunity to sing along to the parts of the songs you know and hum awkwardly through the parts you don't as Mary Poppins, the original, magical, carpetbaggin' nanny pops into No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Or, rather, the Music Hall at Fair Park (909 1st Ave.). You'll return to memories of your own upbringing as you gleefully watch her care for the Banks children by force-feeding them medicine and speaking total jibberish. (Note to self: Call Mom.) Tickets start at $20.25 and are on sale at dallassummermusicals.org.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
