Everyone knows her as the woman who created Mary Poppins, but who was P.L. Travers before she became famous? Inspired by true events (yet told with a healthy spoonful of imagination), ‘Paper Stars’ follows the Australian-born Lyndon Goff as she sets sail from the docks of Sydney Harbour in 1924, with dreams of becoming a great writer in London. There, she reinvents herself as Pamela Travers, and goes on to write one of the most beloved stories of all time, ‘Mary Poppins’. But can Pamela learn to love real people as much as her characters? With a whimsical book by Grace Chapple and Miranda Middleton, and a spectacular score by Luke Byrne, ‘Paper Stars’ is a new Australian musical about finding magic in the everyday.
Staged reading directed by Miranda Middleton, music directed by David Youings, starring Loren Hunter, Phoenix Jackson Mendoza, Jodie Harris, Samantha Hammersley, Matt Heyward, Deklan Haas, Gerard Lane, and Naarah Barnes.
‘Paper Stars’ was first developed by The Hatch Lab Musical Theatre Residency Program at Salty Theatre.
