Hi, I'm George Stiles.
In 1964, when the world first saw Marc Beaux and Dee Dee Wood's brilliant choreography
for the Step in Time number of Walt Disney's glorious film of Mary Poppins,
the number was essentially a fantastic party
held on the rooftops of London.
Our task for the stage version was to set the number
into the expanded story of our show.
Mary and Bert introduce Jane and Michael Banks
to the mysterious world of the chimney sweeps,
who are essentially guardian angels.
Mary tells them that these guardians are always there when you need them,
ready to step in, to step in, just in time.
Take a look at this exclusive performance of the number
choreographed by Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear
from our Broadway production.
Bert: Look out there!
Bert: We will step in Sweeps: Step in time.
Bert: We will step in Sweeps: Step in time.
Bert: Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Bert: We will step in Sweeps: Step in time.
Bert and Sweeps: Over the rooftops, step in time.
Over the rooftops, step in time.
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme.
Over the rooftops, step in time!
Sweeps: Watch your step but, step in time.
Watch your step but, step in time.
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme.
What where you step but, step in time
Kick your knees up, step in time
Kick your knees up, step in time
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
Kick your knees up, step in time!
Mary: Childhood is a step in time, parenthood's the same
Mary and Bert: Never miss a chance to get it right
Bert: Don't it seem a perfect crime, don't it seem a shame
Mary and Bert: When the steps aren't going, as smoothly as they might.
Sweeps: That's when we step in, step in time
That's when we step, step in time.
Never need a reason, never need a rhyme
That's when we step in, step in time.

Feeling in the wars
Sweeps: Someone's up your chimney
Mary: And it isn't Santa Claus!

We'll be watching over you
Brushes, brooms,
