Mary Poppins is bringing music and fantasy to the historic Astra Theatre on Saturday, June 1.

Jasper – (NNDC)

Just as the East wind brought Mary Poppins to Number 17 Cherry Tree Lane in London, she will now be riding the wind with her umbrella to Jasper and the newly remodeled Astra Theatre. The original 1964 film, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, will once again take over the big screen for young and old alike to enjoy.

The movie is playing in conjunction with the Jasper Community Art’s (JCA) and their annual Chalk Walk event. The Chalk Walk will take place in the morning/afternoon, and Mary Poppins is the theme for this event.
