Here’s a tiny snippet from last night. A moment I will never forget. #ForRichard #ForGary #StayAwake #HappyBirthdayRichard #MaryPoppins #RichardMSherman #shermanbrothers #9monthspregnant
Yesterday was a really incredible day. I didn’t advertise that I was doing this for fear that I would jinks it and Gary would have an early curtain time! But last night, I had the extreme privilege of singing in this gorgeous concert celebrating my dear friend Richard M. Sherman and his music. Many months ago, Gregg Sherman had this beautiful idea of my singing one of his Dad’s lullaby’s for this. We knew we’d be cutting it close, but it was worth a try! Ten days before my due date, I got to sing “Stay Awake/Hushabye Mountain” to both my unborn son and the man who wrote it. It will be a moment I NEVER forget and cannot wait to tell Gary about. A huge thank you to Gregg Sherman, Richard Allen, Bruce Kimmel, John Calder, David Truly, and everyone who let me be a part of this, but made it SO easy for this very pregnant lady. I am SO grateful. Everyone involved was SO amazing. So glad to see so many friends last night! Wish I got a photo with all of you! I’d also like to give a very special shout out to Keala Settle. This fricken rad chick is the REAL DEAL. She already jumped in for someone else who was sick and sang their song, but then came early to my soundcheck to learn my stuff just in case I went into labor. She’s not only one of the most talented people, she is who every pro should aspire to be. Plus she’s just the SHIT. Thanks for the laughs and for being amazing, girl! Richard M. Sherman, celebrating you will always be my favorite. You deserve every praise, every key, every award, everything! Jimmy and I love you and your whole family so much! Thank you for letting us be in your life and music! Happy 90th Birthday Sir! Thank you to my FAB husband for sticking by my side and helping me through the night! ❤️ #RichardMSherman #ShermanBrothers #MaryPoppins #ChittyChittyBangBang #GarysLullaby #friendship #myhero #everyoneshero #cheeksforweeks @timewoundsallheels @kealasettle @richardallen482 @julianahansen @brentbarrett @whitesheik @jimmylittle

This is my friend Richard. Tonight, some very talented friends, family, and the City of Beverly Hills paid tribute to Richard and helped him celebrate his 90th birthday (albeit a few weeks late). If you don’t know, Richard (frequently along with his brother Robert) created the soundtrack of our childhood... and beyond. The music of “Mary Poppins,” “Jungle Book,” “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” “The Enchanted Tiki Room,” “It’s A Small World,” and Ringo’s “You’re Sixteen” — yep, all from the Sherman Brothers (to name a tiny few). Happy 90th, Richard. #richardmsherman #shermanbrothers #composer #disney #waltdisney #thewallis #marypoppins #hbday #beverlyhills #chittychittybangbang #itsasmallworld #hbd #enchantedtikiroom #junglebook #oscars #disneylegends

Not a dry eye in the house June 20 as @theacademy paid tribute to the Sherman Brothers and their “Hollywood Songbook.” Who isn’t moved by the music of Richard M. Sherman and his late brother Robert B. Sherman? And not just at “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.” Keala Settle opened with a soulful “it’s a small world,” earning the first of the night’s many standing ovations. @johnstamos (yes, he owns the old Disneyland sign from Harbor Boulevard!) emceed — telling the packed house at Samuel Goldwyn Theater he’s so obsessed with Sherman Brothers music he named his son “Mowgli TikiTiki ChittyChitty Stamos.” Dick Van Dyke, who did a hip hop version of “A Spoonful of Sugar,” summed up the magic of their music this way: “It went straight to your heart.” Lots of familiar faces on hand, including @mulliganjimmy. (See you at a tiki marketplace soon!) Pete Docter (@pixar ) helped out with the tribute; @alanmenken sang; as did Kenny Loggins, his song “Your Heart Will Lead You Home” from “The Tigger Movie.” And Michael-Leon Wooley (@mlwooley ) did a wonderful “River Song,” from 1973’s “Tom Sawyer.” Juliet Mills, who had husband Maxwell Caulfield on her arm, said hi to me afterward, adding, “You did a great job.” Responding to my quizzical look, they replied, “Aren’t you Johnny Whitaker?” (The title character from “Tom Sawyer.”) While flattered — that would mean I’d shared the screen with Jodie Foster! — I assured them I am not. “But may I say you did a great job, too,” I offered. They laughed! Moments later, who walks up? None other than Mr. Whitaker, who’d been recognized earlier in the evening. Richard Sherman recently turned 90; this night was like one big happy birthday bash — with lots of Disney magic thrown in. He took the stage, ad-libbing a tribute to wife Elizabeth during “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and the evening ended with a sing-a-long to the #MaryPoppins song, “Let’s Go Fly a Kite, ” while overhead kites were flying! #disney #disneyfan #shermanbrothers #richardmsherman #robertbsherman #music #Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious #waltdisney #hollywood #thursday #disneysongs #disneymusic #itsasmallworld #kealasettle #disneyland #disneyworld #pixar #tiki
With two of my favorite guys last night... #richardmsherman #daddyhood
How did I not know about this?!? Apparently tickets had sold out in a wink. Someone out there in cyberspace with an extra ticket or superstar power, something, anything - get me here! 😂 To be able to see @official_dick_van_dyke and #HayleyMills pay homage to Richard and Robert Sherman would be extraordinary and potentially mind blowing! #richardmsherman #robertsherman #shermanbrothers #dickvandyke #chimchimcheree #letsgettogether #parenttrap #samuelgoldwyntheater . . . . . . . #disneyhistory #disneyig #disnerd #disneygram #disneygeek #disneyinsta #disneynerd #disneyinstagram #vintagedisney #waltdisney #marypoppins #disney #disneymusic #tikiroom #tikitikitikitikitikiroom #disneylegend #disneylegends

Happy 90th birthday to legendary, Academy Award winning songwriter Richard Sherman (on the left), pictured alongside Julie Andrews and brother and collaborator Robert. Both men, known as "The Sherman Brothers", are responsible for their memorable songs in several classic musical Disney fares such as Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and even penned the theme park's main theme "It's a Small World (After All)". Their non Disney works include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Charlotte's Web. Best wishes. #richardmsherman #songwriters #greatsongwriters #disneyicons #marypoppins #chittychittybangbang #thearistocats #bedknobsandbroomsticks #snoopycomehome #charlottesweb
Today is composer and songwriter, Richard M. Sherman's 90th birthday! Along with his brother Robert B. Sherman, he wrote and composed the songs and and music for Walt Disney's Mary Poppins. This is an original program from the premier of Mary Poppins that my friend Stacia gave me years ago. I've had the honor of working with Richard on various productions over the years. One occasion I brought this to show him and he graciously offered to sign it for me. Oh....and Julie Andrews did me the honor as well. This is such a treasure to me. #HappyBirthday #RichardMSherman #90 #MaryPoppins #MyTreasures #JulieAndrews
The HAPPIEST birthday to the man who fills all our hearts with delightful music and smiles, Richard M. Sherman. He is 90 years old today. I am so honored to not only get to work with him, but call him my friend. Sir, I love you deeply. I am so grateful to know you and be one of “Richard’s Girls/Richard’s Angels!” 😋 You are so celebrated and so loved! #RichardMSherman #HappyBirthday #90YearsYoung #Disney #ShermanBrothers #TrueArtist #❤️
Happy birthday to one of the dearest men I’ve ever known! Thank you for the music. #richardmsherman #shermanbrothers
I could go on for days telling you how this man and his brother and their songs shaped my life as a child and into adulthood. But I won’t. Instead I’ll wish him all the best and thank him on his 90th! Happy Berfday, Mr. Sherman!! #90yearsyoung #richardmsherman #shermanbrothers #livinglegend #songwriter #lovemylife #thankyouuniverse
What a guy! Happy birthday #RichardMSherman . What joy you've brought to the world with your incredible body of work. You also wrote the songs for The Slipper and the Rose which deserves far more praise than it gets. One of my absolute faves growing up and the music was everything! #happybirthday #Disney #composer #song #songwriter #genius #BornOnThisDay #chittychittybangbang #P .O.S.H #marypoppins #feedthebirds #supercalifragalisticexpialidocious #chimchimeny #bedknobsandbroomsticks #thejunglebook #iwannabelikeyou

Years ago, I was standing in line for the "It's a Small World" attraction listening to the most played song in the world as I was waiting. My Motorola flip phone started to ring, playing my personalized ring tone of #ItsaSmallWorld which was well worth the 99 cents I paid. It happened to be #RichardMSherman (the songwriter) calling me as I explained where I was exactly, holding the phone up in the air so he could hear. He said, "I guess it's a small world after all." We laughed and I got to tell this story. #shermanbrothers #disneylegend #Disneyland #peace #Disney 🌎🎶🕊 @mickeymouse

Fantastic performance of Hollywood Revisited at the gorgeous Annenberg theater in Palm Springs for modernism week presented by the amazing Mark Davis. The incredible Richard Chamberlain was our special guest, and I debuted a new costume and song from The Slipper and The Rose written by Richard M Sherman and Robert Sherman. Richard Chamberlain is a true king and a terrific guy. We had such a great time! Thank you to the AMAZING CREW at the Annenberg including Danny Torres, TD who made everything a dream. #HollywoodRevisited #ModernismWeek #RichardChamberlain #richardmsherman #theslipperandtherose
Day 146 . Sunny days and starry nights and lazy afternoons You're counting castles in the clouds and humming little tunes. But somehow right before your eyes the sun fades away, Everything is different and everything has changed If you feel you lost And on your own And far from home You're never alone you know Just think of your friends The ones who care They all will be waiting there With love to share And your heart will lead you home Funny how a photograph Can take you back in time To places and races that you thought you'd left behind Trying to remind you that you're not the only one That no-one is an island when all is said and done If you feel you lost And on your own And far from home You're never alone you know Just think of your friends The ones who care They all will be waiting there With love to share And your heart will lead you home There'll come a day when you're losing your way And you won't know where you belong They say that home is where the heart is So follow your heart and know that you can't go wrong. If you feel you lost And on your own And far from home You're never alone you know Just think of your friends The ones who care They all will be waiting there With love to share And your heart will lead you ... If you feel you lost And on your own And far from home You're never alone you know Just think of your friends The ones who care They all will be waiting there With love to share And your heart will lead you ... where you belong ... I know your heart will lead you home. . I never met pooh friends in Boston😥 . #yourheartwillleadyouhome #KennethClarkLoggins #RichardMSherman #RobertBSherman #thetigermovie

"Until you learn to see with your heart Beauty hides behind the common place But through the eyes of love, you can start Seeing beauty face to face Reality can be all you wanted to be There's a golden sun there are silver skies You see your castles rise through the eyes of love As winter snow only hides the flowers below Every face and everyday place conceals A beauty it reveals To the eyes of love" Just watched this the other day. These lyrics are from a deleted song from Mary Poppins. There were 35 songs written for Mary Poppins and 14 were used. This song is titled, "Through the Eyes of Love." And I love that first line in the lyric. Our eyes can deceive us at times and I think we could all benefit if we really did see with our hearts! What a great lyrical line from The Sherman Brothers. #theshermanbrothers #richardmsherman #richardmshermansongsofalifetime #robertsherman #music #composer #composers #marypoppins #songwriting #songwriters #disney #disneymusic #deletedmusicfrommarypoppins #lyrics #lyricwritting #shermanbrothersmusic #musicispowerful #mademethink #seewithyourheart #disneyrecords

What an absolute pleasure it was to be at last week's gala opening of a world premiere musical by the legendary Sherman Brothers, who wrote so much wonderful music for movies, Broadway and theme parks (Mary Poppins, Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Aristocrats, It's a Small World, and so much more). The show, Levi!, a musical about the life of Levi Strauss, was written in the early 80s. It was optioned twice, but despite the success of other Sherman Brothers projects, it was never performed ... until this production by @LACCTheatreAcademy. The show was fun, informative and filled with toe-tapping Sherman Brothers music. And the highlight had to be meeting Richard M. Sherman himself. Altogether this night, in a word, was #Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !

Last year's (2016-17) school production, 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' had a large cast of 143 talented students who played over 200 roles supported by 128 staff members. Did you know that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was written by Ian Fleming for his son? Or that Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for the Disney film? Drama is taught by specialist teachers to children from 8 years old in the Junior School, to the Senior School students including Drama for IGCSE (Cambridge), Drama & Theatre studies in A Level or Theatre studies in the IB Diploma. In addition, the extensive performing arts co-curricular program allows students to do different types of dance, music & drama in the extensive purpose built Arts Centre.
