Last year, our event raised over $14,000, and we are hoping to enjoy similar success this year!

 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 www.showtix4u.com 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.
