BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Actress Caroline Sheen transforms into a feisty British nanny nearly every night since last February, playing Mary Poppins all around the country. Currently, she's entertaining audiences at Shea's Buffalo.

"She just has so many facets. She's naught, she's funny, she's haughty and she's magical," Sheen said.

Nicolas Dromard sings and dances right besides Sheen as the character "Bert" in the show. Both actors said there's nothing like the theatre.

"There's always a moment where I run off stage in "Step in Time" and I grab my sweep and I look at the kids and say I love my job," Dromard said.

They said it all starts with auditions, then many rehearsal but through it all the cast becomes close.

"As a whole you become a family because you're together months on end," Sheen said.

And both agree that this show is full of magic including an amazing set.

"It because a whole new world that opens up and it really talks to the audience," Dromard said.

Also, characters that fly over the audience.

"It's actually quite scary, I don't take it for granted," Sheen said.

But Sheen said people in Buffalo area are loving every spectacular minute.

"We're having wonderful audiences who are enjoying the show. I always enjoy it when I know the audience is enjoying it," Sheen said.

Dromard agrees.

"Buffalo is just a really theatrical city. It really supports theatre," Dromard said.

And they said that the show also brings a more serious message to people of all ages.

"It's actually a story of our time. It has incredible contemporary meaning to what we're going through this day and age with the credit crunch, recession and everyone looking after pennies," Sheen said.

They said all of this is wrapped up in to one show that is better than a spoon full of sugar.
