Theatre for everyone, made by kids.

Summer 2019

A jack-of-all trades named Bert introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family.

Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep.

Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again.

Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect.

Show Dates:

July 26 & Aug. 2 (7 p.m.)
July 27 & Aug. 3 (2 p.m. & 7 p.m.)
July 28 & Aug. 4 (3 p.m.)
On stage at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road

AECT is a 501c3 Nonprofit organization that enables children’s theatre programming. We cast kids in all our shows, and kids make up our crews as well. That’s right, kids act, sing, direct, light, design and build sets, design and apply stage makeup, costumes, props, usher, and more.

We make this happen by bringing in expert mentors to teach and guide children from all walks of life to create excellent live theatre productions.
