The Mary Poppins kids I work with on the Broadway production are pretty incredible. They range in ages from eight years old to twelve years old and when other children their age are out playing soccer or going to ballet classes or playing baseball, they are at dance rehearsals or blocking rehearsals or put-in rehearsals or dialect/diction rehearsals. For such young people they have amazing concentration and ability.
We had a great rehearsal yesterday just to check on the accuracy of the dialect and to be sure the audience can understand every word they are saying. Their ability to concentrate for two hours is impressive. They never cease to amaze me.
