Mary Poppins star Dick Van Dyke is marking his 85th birthday next week (13Dec10) by performing in his own one-man stage show.
The beloved entertainer proves he has no plans to take it easy in his old age after kicking off his new stage production, entitled Step in Time! A Musical Memoir, in Los Angeles on Wednesday (08Dec10).
Van Dyke is thrilling crowds with a collection of his movie numbers, including a rap version of Mary Poppins classic A Spoonful of Sugar.
And the star refuses to find his hectic six-show schedule daunting: "Everyone else is playing golf but I'll play that when I'm old. Right now I'm playing at singing and dancing."
The show will run at L.A.'s Geffen Playhouse until 16 January (11).
