Mary Poppins - The Broadway Musical!

This magical family musical is based on the series of children’s books by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The stage play is a fusion of various elements from the books and movie. Some elements from the books that were not included in the film were restored while others were removed.  Produced by Walt Disney Theatrical, the original West End (London) production opened in December 2004 and the Broadway production opened in November 2006.  This  local production is a cooperative effort between Theatre North and The Historic Ironwood Theatre.

For those who don't know the story: George and Winifred live at Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane with their misbehaved children, whose latest nanny has just quit with a fit. Enter Mary Poppins, the “practically perfect” nanny who teaches with magic and bonds with the children as no other nanny has. When Mary suddenly leaves the position, and Winifred hires George’s childhood nanny to take on the job, sending George and the children fleeing from the house, Mary becomes more valuable than ever. With patience, kindness, and a little bit of magic, Mary and her friend Bert help the family set things right - maybe more right than they’d ever been before.

Hitchcock's "The Lodger"

The Lodger

Released in 1927, The Lodger is the last of Alfred Hitchcock' silent movies. Though he made several films prior to The Lodger, Hitchcock once stated that he considered this his first true suspense film.  It is also the first Hitchcock film in which the director makes one of his trademark cameo appearances.

A serial killer known as "The Avenger" is on the loose in London, murdering blonde women. A mysterious man arrives at the house of Mr. and Mrs. Bunting looking for a room to rent. The Bunting's daughter is a blonde model and is seeing one of the detectives assigned to the case. The detective becomes jealous of the lodger and begins to suspect he may be the avenger. 

Lodger Poster

And a little movie-making trivia: For the opening scene, where the Avenger's murder victim faces the camera and screams, Hitchcock filmed the scene by having the actress lie down on a large sheet of glass, with her golden hair spread out around her head. He then lit the actress from underneath the sheet of glass, and filmed her with a camera mounted on its side, with the lens pointed at a downward angle. This gave the appearance that the actress's hair (with its golden curls, so important to the murderer) was ringed in a halo of light.

Staff organist at both the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor and the Detroit Fox, Fr Andrew Rogers returns to HIT to accompany this classic silent horror flick. A great way to "Get Your Halloween On!"
