The musical "Mary Poppins" opens at Southeast Missouri State University's River Campus on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. A cast of nearly 50 students will bring this Disney classic to life on the stage of the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall.

We spoke with Mary Poppins, played by Abigail Alsmeyer and Bert the chimney sweep, played by Jose Alpizar.

We’re talking today with Rocky Sickmann who works with “Folds of Honor” -- a nonprofit that provides scholarships to the children and spouses of U.S. military men and women disabled or killed in service to their country. He served in the United States Marine Corps for six years and was one of 65 Americans taken hostage in Iran on Nov. 4, 1979. Sickmann remained a hostage for 444 days before being released on January 21, 1981.
