The Nanny at the Manor House

A family-friendly storytelling performance by William Hager. Inspired by the classic PL Travers' story, Mary Poppins. A descendant of the Lancaster department store, Hager Brothers, William Hager has amassed an amazing history of his own. A magician, photographer, entertainer, and marketing consultant—he, too, is almost perfect in every way. This special event takes place at Garth Gallery, 22 S. 2nd Street in Columbia.
