    If we go with Mary Poppins, I'm considering adding a matinee performance to go along with our three evening performances. How were your ticket sales? Were they larger than usual, or did you add performances? Also, did anyone do anything like a Tea with Mary for young? We did a Tea with Cinderella and raised a lot of money for not too much work, plus we sold quite a few tickets to people who attended.

    I always do a Sunday matinee and those are regularly my biggest audiences.

    Absolutely do a matinee for Mary Poppins. Any family-appropriate musical I have done over the past 40 years has its biggest audience at matinees. Not only is the time better for children, but many senior guests find the earlier time fits their schedules better.
