Heritage College Lake Macquarie to stage Mary Poppins at Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre on March 29 and 30

Heritage College Lake Macquarie, in Morisset, is set to raise the curtain on its production of the much-loved musical Mary Poppins on Friday night.

Principal Simon Dodson said the stage show would be performed at Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre, in Warners Bay.

"It is a culmination of nearly a year's planning and effort on the part of so many staff, parents and students," Mr Dodson said.

"A school musical brings the school community together on a project which displays the creative talents of so many students. It is an experience that students will remember for the rest of their lives.

"The actors, singers, dancers, musicians, choreographers, audio-visual engineers, props managers, stage hands, costume-makers, producers and directors have all contributed to this amazing stage show."

Mr Dodson said students had prepared enthusiastically for the production.

"It is very satisfying to see so many students engaged in learning in such a profound and captivating way," he said.

I hope you enjoy our musical production. The energy of so many dedicated students, staff and parents is on show. Thank you for your ongoing support of our school. So... 'Let's go fly a kite'."

There will be performances on Friday, March 29, at 7pm; and on Saturday, March 30, at 2pm and 7pm.
