Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins

Nov. 20th 2014 - Jan. 3rd, 2015

The Palace Theater, Wisconsin Dells

A dream came true when Jessica had the opportunity to fly through the air in her dream role of "Mary Poppins".  Mary Poppins launched the start of this successful dinner theater in Wisconsin Dells, under the direction of Marc Robin and Buddy Reeder and Producers, Anthony and Joseph Tomaska.

"Jessica Lorion commanded the stage as a forceful, but motherly, Poppins.  Her voice soaring, as she did through the air, into the space around her - Lorion's graceful performance of the role provided the genuine affection that audiences expect.  Her no nonsense approach when combined with the character's hints of imagination could give dear Julie Andrews a run for her money.  Frankly, Lorion was born to play the role."

“Jessica Lorion, was a sparkling, if a bit sexy, Babette.” -Kathy Lauer-Williams, The Morning Call “Jessica Lorion does a charming Babette.” -Dave Ross, The Charlebois Post-Toronto

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast features the animated film’s score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, with additional songs with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice.  The book is written by Linda Woolverton.

It is a classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress.  If the Beast learns to love and to be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self.  Time is running out and if he does not learn soon, he and his castle will be doomed for all eternity.
