Britain's NHS dream becomes a nightmare; Voldemort appears to summon a coven of witches who, bedecked in black, fly to his aid...
...but all is not lost and everything is not what it seems; in a practically perfect resolution, what appeared at first sight to be evil is not. Mary Poppins flies in to save the day! Genius.
These videos were taken at Wednesday's dress rehearsal. I didn't realise YouTube could cope with larger files which is why rather than film through I broke them up.
I thought watching on TV would be just as good, perhaps even better, but actually it wasn't. It didn't show the sheer scale of what was going on and missed various moments; first spotting the multiple Mary Poppins flying overhead was thrilling. They were glowing and we all thought they were witches flying in, only upon the point of landing when umbrellas popped open did it become apparent who they were!
