apr 28 - may 21, 2017
Book and Lyrics by Susan DiLallo
Music and Lyrics by Danny Abosch
Adapted from the popular Fancy Nancy books written by Jane O'Connor
Theatre:
Kate Goldman Children's Theatre

Meet Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. She loves her frilly bedroom, her lace-trimmed socks, and will take any chance she gets to show-off her fancy French!

But when Nancy finds out that someone else was picked to be the star mermaid of their first dance recital and Nancy is forced to play a tree, she must learn kindness and find the “fancy flair” in her new role.

Nancy is reminded of the importance of making the most of every part we are called on to play in life and she learns just how incredibly fabulous being a tree can be. Adapted from the bestselling book series by Jane O’Connor, Fancy Nancy will warm your heart with SPARKLE!
