Disney’s classic film Mary Poppins made the April 2017 KPBX Kids Concert a magical affair.  Thanks to Swank Films, SPR showed the full-length film in Spokane Community College’s Lair Auditorium.

Mary Poppins is the 1964 film adapted by Disney from the classic books by P.J. Travers, starring Julie Andrews as the magical British nanny. The film won five Academy Awards for its leading lady, special effects team, and the delightful songs by the Sherman Brothers. 

This free admission event was made possible by event donors Harvard Park Children’s Learning Center North, Numerica Credit Union, and Rocket Bakeries.

Thanks also to Gordon Grove, Hearn Brothers Printing, and the SPR volunteers.
