Mary Poppins Scenic Projections
Overall, projections bring a cinematic element to the theatrical medium. By enhancing theatrical productions in these ways, scenic projections create a more engaging theatre-going experience for audiences of all ages, allowing them to be absorbed in a truly stunning delivery.
Reminiscent of a children’s storybook, our scenic projections for “Mary Poppins” feature gentle colors with black-line work defining structures throughout. These projections can be used to replace an entire set. However, many of our clients choose to use the scenic design as a backdrop replacement and create a built set for the scenes which take place in the interior of the home.
The story of “Mary Poppins” is full of wonder and magic, which can be difficult to transfer to a live production. Items fall off shelves and Mary bakes a cake with the snap of her fingers during the kitchen scene. The park must change from black and white to full color as Bert is introduced in the first act. All of these facets are built into our scenic design, solving the common issues that arrive when mounting a story of this nature. Furthermore, during the “Step in Time” number, our projections paint a phenomenal picture of the London skyline for the chimney sweeps to move against.
Our scenic projections for “Mary Poppins” have been successfully used across the country, most notably by New York’s Broadway Training Center of Westchester and Tennessee’s Act Too Players School of Music and Theatre.
