A FEW spoons full of sugar, as well as a lot of talent, helped Mary Poppins the musical go down a treat with theatre goers at last night's official opening at QPAC.
The Brisbane audience gave the stellar cast a standing ovation at the end of a three-hour song and dance extravaganza.
Lead performers Verity Hunt-Ballard and Matt Lee sparkled in the lavish show, featuring some of the best set and lighting designs ever seen in southeast Queensland.
The first act built to a climax with the tongue-twisting Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious featuring rousing and sharp-hitting choreography.
Highlights of the second act included tap dancing in Step In Time and the entire company singing the inspiring Anything Can Happen.
Celebrities in attendance included Rhonda Burchmore and Channel 7's Rod Young and Liz Cantor.
Mary Poppins plays QPAC's Lyric Theatre Wednesdays through Sundays until March 17. Tickets from $40.
