EVERYTHING is just supercalifragilistic for Michael Cantwell, who is starring in the hugely successful West End production of Mary Poppins.

The former Neale-Wade Community College student is playing Mr Northbrook in the production at London's King Edward Theatre.

Michael, 44, pictured, who also has various minor roles in eight shows a week, is delighted to have been cast as understudy for the character of George Banks, who engages Mary Poppins as nanny to his two children Jane and Michael.

In 2000, Michael starred in the West End production of Cats and has been kept busy since then doing concert and corporate work.
