Vocalist/actress Ashley Brown, who originated the role of everyone’s favorite nanny in the Broadway production of “Mary Poppins,” comes to Ogden this week for a concert with the Utah Symphony.

“A Broadway Christmas with Ashley Brown” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, in the Browning Center at Weber State University, in Ogden. The concert is sponsored by Onstage Ogden.

It’s the same show Brown debuted last year at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. Last year’s tour included the Atlanta Pops, the Cincinnati Pops and the National Symphony. This year’s stops include the Utah Symphony and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
