Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's
Mary Poppins Junior musical

Grounds open at 7:00 p.m. for picnicking, with the show at 8:00 p.m.

The jack-of-all trades, 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. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from
the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Audience members are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for lawn seating. A limited number of chairs are available free of charge at the concession area, and a snack/soft drink concession is on site.

For tickets and further information, visit the website at www.musicalsatrichter.org, or e-mail info@musicalsatrichter.org.

Lullaby Requiem

In the history of classical music, there has never been a major orchestral and choral requiem written as a memorial for the children we have lost to violence! It was with this thought that Eric Lewis began composing the Lullaby Requiem.

The Lullaby Requiem is conceived as an eleven movement symphony. Six movements are currently completed, the other 5 awaiting funding that will allow the project to continue and move forward into production.

Traffic Box Art Initiative -2018.jpg

“OUTSIDE THE BOX”

In Fall of 2017, Mayor Boughton asked local artists and graphic designers to submit draft proposals for consideration in the City’s Traffic Box Art Program. A selection committee chose 7 artists for our first round of 9 traffic boxes. Art was prepped by Merritt Big Color and placed on vinyl wrapping for our traffic boxes.

“Downtown Danbury represents the vibrancy of our city and our community. By partnering with our local residents for this project, we attempt to capture that vibrancy in a new, unique, and artistic way,” said Mayor Boughton. “Our call to artists brought in folks of all ages who live in and around Danbury, to team up with the City and bring this special public art project to life in downtown. We hope you will take a walk through our city center and enjoy these art pieces.”
