Everyone remembers Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and Maria von Trapp, but who was she before that?

The voice that Julie Andrews thought of as a “gimmick” at age 10 became one of the most recognizable voices in the world. In celebration of Women’s History Month, join storyteller Jenny Riddle as she dramatizes the life of Julie Andrews, before she was Mary or Maria, telling her story and singing her songs, in her presentation of Julie Andrews’ book, Home: A Memoir of My Early Years.
