Abbotsford school creates online version of Mary Poppins Jr.

North Poplar had originally planned to present live production in April

The Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts (ASIA) at North Poplar has moved its planned musical production to a virtual format.

The school’s production of Mary Poppins Jr. was originally slated to be staged on April 23 and 24 at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the school’s teachers volunteered to transform the play to an online platform. Students created costumes from what they had available to them and submitted videos from home.

The teachers then pieced the production together over many hours, and it has now been posted to YouTube.
