The run may not start until November 13, but Center Theatre Group’s stop on the Mary Poppins national tour has already been extended an additional two weeks, and the show will now play the Ahmanson Theater through February 7, 2010.

Based on P.L. Travers’ stories and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, Mary Poppins features the music and lyrics of Richard and Robert Sherman, with new songs by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, book by Julian Fellowes, direction by Richard Eyre and co-direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne.

The touring production will feature original Broadway stars,
Ashley Brown as Mary Poppins and Gavin Lee as Bert, and also includes Karl Kenzler (Mr. Banks), Megan Osterhaus (Mrs. Banks), Valerie Boyle (Mrs. Brill), Mary Vanarsdel (Bird Woman), Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Robertson Ay), Ellen Harvey (Miss Andrew), and Mike O'Carroll (Admiral Boom). Christopher Flaim and Justin Hall alternate in the role of Michael Banks, while Aida Neitenbach and Abigail Droeger alternate in the role of Jane Banks.
