On Saturday 21st February 2009, 32 guests and members of staff from the Lindum Hotel took a Coastal Coach to the heart of City Centre Manchester, The Palace Theatre, for a wonderful afternoon of musical theatre. The well known stories of PL Travers and Disney Film Productions have been adapted by Cameron Mackintosh and has toured the country since 2004. We arrived in good time and had great centre seats in the stalls. Lisa O'Hare played the legendary Mary Poppins and she was "Practically Perfect In Every Way", cleverly convincing us that she was just as worthy to be on the stage as Julie Andrews. Daniel Crossley played Bert, whose singing and dancing was magical - and not an american accent in sight! They were supported by a very talented cast and the production was packed with clever scenery, stage tricks and all the well known songs - and some new ones. No wonder it has won so many awards. We arrived back at the Lindum just in time for their award winning food! An evening dinner of 3 delicous courses and coffee, followed by more entertainment in the lounge. A great day out!!! Looking forward to the next Lindum Theatre Trip - "Thriller" on March 25th.
