KING CITY — “Mary Poppins Jr.” is flying into town next week at the Robert Stanton Theater at King City High School beginning March 23. 

This musical production is a collaboration between Sol Treasures and King City High School and runs Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, at 7 p.m., and on Sunday, March 25, at 2 p.m.

Sol Treasures is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and “Mary Poppins Jr.” is the 16th production of its Children’s Theater Program.

“This is a terrific story for the whole family to enjoy,” says Sol Treasures.

Directed by Jeff Hinderscheid, with musical direction by Celestina Ripley, the musical features 38 students, ages 8 to 17, acting, singing and dancing their way across stage.

The musical is based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film and is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

These programs are only possible thanks to Sol Treasures staff and the countless hours donated by volunteers who help provide artistic and acting opportunities for local students.

Tickets for “Mary Poppins Jr.” are $10 for adults and $5 for children and can be bought at Sol Treasures, 519 Broadway St., in King City, or call 386-9809.

This program is supported by grants from STAR Foundation, Harden Foundation, Arts Council for Monterey County, MC Gives, Nancy Buck-Ransom Foundation and Pebble Beach Company Foundation.
