For the first time, National History Day will be hosted in West Chester at the Chester County Historical Society. Over 2,000 sixth through twelfth grade students and their families will arrive from Chester and Delaware counties to be judged on their original research on the theme Rights and Responsibilities. Successful presentors move on to regional and national competitions. See West Chester’s National History Day welcome page for further information. The event is proudly sponsored by the West Chester Business Improvement District which believes student interpretation of our rights and responsibilities will lead to a better understanding of our place in history.

About the show:
Two of literature’s most unforgettable young ladies get mixed up together in a magical meeting that produces hilarious results as the audience becomes reacquainted with a cast of familiar characters and sees them in a new light: the Cowardly Lion, the White Rabbit, the Tin Man, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow, the Dormouse, the Queen and the Witch from those enduring classics The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. This fun-filled romp follows Alice and Dorothy and their coteries as they try to unscramble their stories with the help of a contemporary young lad who started the whole thing to begin with when he put off a book report until the very last minute. Dorothy Meets Alice is a fun and fanciful fantasy at its finest. As the two girls would say, “Wiz you were Hare!”
See a special performance of She Loves Me on Thursday, October 25, with a reception starting at 6:00pm and show starting at 8:00. Ticket proceeds benefit the WCU Theatre Scholarships and Greater West Chester Chamber. Special guest Mayor Carolyn Comitta will be performing in the show. Call 610-436-2955 for ticket information.
The basis for the hit movie “You’ve Got Mail”, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world nostalgia, yet as universal and relevant as ever in this age of internet romances.
