Character Breakdown:

MARY POPPINS - Female 30-40 yrs old. Range: Gb3 - C6.
Jane and Michael Banks's new nanny. She is extraordinary and strange, neat and tidy, delightfully vain yet very particular, and sometimes a little frightening but always exciting. She is practically perfect in every way and always means what she says. She should be able to move well.

BERT - Male 30-39 yrs old. Range: B2 - F#4.
Narrator of the story and a good friend to Mary Poppins. An everyman, Bert has many occupations, including hurdy-gurdy player, sidewalk artist, and chimney sweep. Bert watches over the children as well as the goings on in Cherry Tree Lane. He has charm, speaks with a Cockney accent, and is a song-and-dance-man.

WINIFRED BANKS - Female 30-40 yrs old. Range: A3 - D5.
George's wife and Jane and Michael's mother. A former actress, she is a loving and distracted homemaker who is busy trying to live up to her husband's desire to only associate with "the best people" as well a model wife and mother. She suffers from the conflicting feelings that she's not up to the job of "being Mrs. Banks," yet, she is, and more. She has a great warmth and simplicity to her tone.

GEORGE BANKS - Male 40-45 yrs old. Range: Bb2 - Eb4.
Father to Jane and Michael Banks. He is a banker to the very fiber of his being. Demanding "precision and order" in his household, he is a pipe-and-slippers man who doesn't have much to do with his children and believes that he had the perfect upbringing by his nanny, the cruel Miss Andrew. His emotional armor, however, conceals a sensitive soul.

JANE BANKS - Female 11 yrs old. Range: A3 - F#5.
High-spirited daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Banks. She is bright and precocious but can be willful and inclined to snobbishness.

MICHAEL BANKS - Male 9 yrs old. Range: A3 - E5.
Cute and cheeky son of Mr. and Mrs. Banks. Excitable and naughty, he adores his father and tries to be like him. Both he and Jane misbehave in order to get the attention of their parents.

MISS ANDREW/ MRS. CORRY - Female 40-60 yrs old to play both parts. As Ms. Andrew: Range: Gb3 - F5.George's overbearing and scary nanny. With her bottle of nasty-tasting brimstone and treacle to keep naughty children in line, she is a bully who only knows one way of doing things - her way. As Mrs. Corry: Owns a magical gingerbread shop. She is a mysterious woman of great age who is quite stylized and speaks with an exotic accent.

ROBERTSON AY - Male 20-30 yrs old. Range: F3 - G#4.
Houseboy to the Banks family. Lazy, sleepy, and grumbling, he never gets things right and believes himself to be useless.

BIRD WOMAN/ MRS. BRILL -
Female to play 50-60 yrs old. To play both roles. As Bird Woman : Range: Gb3 - C5. Covered in a patchwork of old shawls, her pockets are stuffed with bags of crumbs for the birds. She tries to sell her crumbs for the birds to passersby, who ignore her as if she doesn't exist. She has a gruff, folksy quality to her voice that reflects the hardness of her life. As Mrs. Brill : Range: F#3 - D#5.

Housekeeper and cook for the Banks family. Overworked and harassed, she's always complaining that the house is understaffed. Her intimidating exterior is a cover for the warmth underneath. Mrs. Brill doesn't have a high opinion of nannies in general and Mary Poppins in particular.

ADMIRAL BOOM - Male 50-60 yrs old.
A retired Royal Navy man and neighbor of the Banks family. A physically large man with a loud and booming voice, he speaks in Navy jargon and has a soft spot for his neighbor, Miss Lark.
