 2017 Unionville HS Production of "Mary Poppins" March 16 -17

    UHS Mary Poppins Press Release.pdf 

UNIONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS: MARY POPPINS, the Broadway Musical  March 16TH, 17TH & 18TH at Unionville High School  7:30pm

Unionville High School is proud to present, Mary Poppins, with performances on March 16th, 17th and 18th at 7:30pm. The Broadway musical version of this beloved Disney classic will be brought to life for the community with an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers and astonishing stagecraft. Share in the magic as Mary flies and Bert climbs the walls!

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Online ticket sales begin February 27th at for $12. Tickets at the door are $14 adults/$12 students and senior citizens. Performances will be at Unionville High School, 750 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, PA 19348.

​​​Be a Part of UThon 2017 - March 25!

UThon is modeled after Penn State's famous THON. It is a six-hour dance and dodgeball event to raise money for Four Diamonds, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching cures for pediatric cancer and alleviating the financial burdens that families of children with cancer face. Last year, our event raised over $14,000, and we are hoping to enjoy similar success this year!
Elementary and middle-schoolers and their parents are invited to take part in this special event. We would love for the younger students to come and cheer for our dodgeball teams, play games, and make cards for children with cancer.
UThon will take place on Saturday, March 25th, and elementary and middle school students and their parents are welcome from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., at UHS. $5 per person is the cost for registration (all proceeds go directly to Four Diamonds). Donations are also appreciated.
​​​​PES Art & Garden
 Saturday. April 29th - Entertainment for the whole family! Fun run, games, activities, demonstrations, concessions, craft & plant sales, and more!
Please consider contributing to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is a grant of a stated amount of money collected annually from the school community by open solicitation. Its purpose is to award the worthy student who wishes to continue his/her education following graduation from ‪Unionville High School. The grant is for the first year of post-secondary work only and will be applied toward college costs (i.e., tuition, room and board). As many grants will be made annually as the treasury of the Community Scholarship can support.
You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship. We accept cash, change or if you would like, a check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.
