Happy Birthday Dick Van Dyke

Happy Birthday to one of the most famous chimney sweeps, Dick Van Dyke! We’re so excited for our own Jolly Holiday with Mary Poppins in January 2016.

The Disney Examiner Reports:
Today marks the 90th birthday of Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke, who played that charming character in Walt Disney’s “Mary Poppins”. He was as cheery as Bert when he showed up to the shopping mall surprised to see so many people there for him. And they didn’t just show up either. 
Take a look at the video above to see the very fun flash mob that was created for Van Dyke as he watched from a restaurant balcony. He later came down to greet all the “Mary Mobsters” to sing some of his favorite Poppins’ tunes.
So fun!

Wheelock Family Theatre's musical production of Mary Poppins runs January 29 to February 28, 2016. For a truly Jolly Holiday with Mary, purchase your Friday night tickets before December 25 for only $25 and no ticket fees.
