LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The "Mary Poppins" stage musical is set to begin its limited engagement at the Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles this weekend.

The North American touring company is to begin performances in Los Angeles Sunday and is scheduled to play there through Feb. 7.

The entire creative team from the Broadway production has reunited to bring this magical story of the world's most famous nanny to audiences across North America, the musical's producers said in a release.

Original Broadway stars Ashley Brown and Gavin Lee will reprise their roles as Mary Poppins and Bert respectively.

Joining Brown and Lee will be Karl Kenzler as George Banks, Megan Osterhaus as Winifred Banks, Valerie Boyle as Mrs. Brill, Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Robertson Ay, Ellen Harvey as Miss Andrew, Mary VanArsdel as The Bird Woman, and Mike O'Carroll as Admiral Boom.
