With the rights for Mary Poppins available off Broadway, theatre companies across the globe are putting on incredible productions. With our experience with this show, we are pleased to offer our services as your Magic and Special Effects consultant and/or magic prop builder for your production of Mary Poppins.
As of this writing we’ve done the show 8 times in 18 months, designing all of the effects and in many cases multiple methods for each to give you plenty of options. We will come to the table with solutions for all effects, ready to be modified to fit into your production. Because of our experience with the show, our work is very fast which gives your team more time to plan your build.
Don’t have the expertise in house to build some of the magic items? No problem. From our shop just outside of Toronto Canada, we offer prop building services as well.
The script calls for many effects and directors often have various effects, or enhanced versions that they want to introduce. Listed below are some of the most commonly used, called-for effects in the script.

To give you an idea of what we provide, below are some of the images of prop designs from past productions of Mary Poppins. These 3D renderings are handed to the set designer to incorporate their design elements and dimensions to be passed on to the builders.
On the left, is a cabinet we have used on several productions which allows for items to be pulled from Mary’s Bag with a clear view to the empty shelf beneath it. On the right, is the dollhouse in which a small doll turns into a living character.
