A spoonful of sugar is the perfect gift for Christmas

IF you are looking for a Christmas present which is practically perfect in every way, look no further.

Gift cards are now on sale for Rockhampton Regional Council's production of Mary Poppins, which will take to the Pilbeam Theatre stage early next year.

The gift cards, which have gone on sale ahead of Christmas, have been specially designed for the Rockhampton production and can brought through the Pilbeam Theatre without any extra cost for the card.

There is no need to lock the recipient into a particular performance as the card holder is able to choose their preferred performance when they redeem the card at the box office.

The local production will be directed by Wayne Scott Kermond, choreographed by Katie Kermond with musical director Jessica Dawes and Vocal Director Elisa Williams.

The cast is made up of local talent with Aleah Dillon as Mary, Joel Duffy as Bert, Brad Villiers as Mr Banks and Amanda Hock as Mrs Banks.

Maddison Scharer and Ella Kibblewhite-Claus will share the role of Jane with Luca Mella and Nick Smith sharing the role of Michael.

The new musical is based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film. It features songs from the movie including Chim Chim Cher-Ee, A Spoonful of Sugar, Let's Go Fly a Kite and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, as well as new songs such as Practically Perfect and Anything Can Happen.

The season will run from March 11 until March 20 with four night shows and two matinees.
