Beef & Boards’ Mary Poppins is Practically Perfect in Every Way

Beef & Boards is hands down one of the top theaters ever! If you’ve never been to a dinner theater, this one takes the cake (and the roast beef.) If you’ve never taken your child to a live performance, Beef & Boards is a wonderful place to go. If you’re a seasoned theater-goer, Beef & Boards is still the hot ticket.

Indianapolis Dinner Theater

Nearly every show at Beef & Boards begins with an elaborate buffet stocked with delicious selections. The menu for the current production, Mary Poppins, includes a fantastic vegetable and salad bar, fish, chicken, and roast beef entrees, warm dinner rolls, broccoli, pasta, potatoes and more! There’s something for every appetite from vegetarian to carnivore, from picky eater to foodie. There are fantastic beverage choices and dessert! Oh, I can’t even tell you how impossible it is to decide which dessert to choose.

Following the meal, the buffet is cleared and the stage is set for an amazing production. Currently, Beef and Boards is performing Mary Poppins.


Disney’s Mary Poppins in Indy

The musical is based on the beloved Disney film. Nominated for seven Tony Awards, Mary Poppins includes a score filled with timeless classics such as “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Step in Time” and the Academy Award-winning “Chim-Chim Cher-ee.”

My friend Brittney and I took our nine-year-old daughters along with us to see the show. We attended an evening show, which goes on pretty late into the night. The dinner buffet is served from 5:30 – 7:30 pm and the show begins at 8 pm. There is an intermission following the first act, so we left around 10:30 pm to go home. If you have younger children, you may consider the Sunday earlier show or an afternoon matinee.

The performance was fantastic — the set was beautiful, the costumes enviable, the music was outstanding and the actors were first-rate.
