An excited crowd of kids young and old turned out to watch Mary Poppins take to the stage at the Civic Theatre for the production's opening night,

The red carpet was lined with famous faces and their kids, including John Tamihere, who took his daughter as his date, and TVNZ's Rawdon Christie, who took wife Jo and their three little ones.

The show wowed the audience with its fabulous sets, singing and dancing, and guests were buzzing long into the night at the after-party where they enjoyed wine and nibbles from wait staff dressed in Mary Poppins theme.
