      FANCY NANCY The Musical
    Rating: G
    Don your most glamorous attire, pour a spot of tea, and join us for the most elegant musical of the year…FANCY NANCY! Nancy and her pals Wanda, Rhonda, Bree and Lionel are super excited to be dancing in a school recital. Nancy is positive (that's fancy for 100 percent) that she will be cast as a shimmering mermaid, but ends up as a ordinary, dreary tree. When Bree lands the coveted role, Nancy realizes that being fancy comes in many forms - all it takes is a dash of imagination, camaraderie, and a little joie de vivre!

    "The show demonstrates that ordinary children can be fancy too, and, even more important, that Fancy Nancy can be an ordinary child." New York Times

    Rating: G
    I'm Lucy Rose, and here's the thing about 4th: that grade is busy like you can't believe!! I'm already collecting a vocabulary plus I have to think up new palindromes and now I have to do the most P-U thing which is the MULTIPLICATION tables, which I would say is a thing I hate - if I was allowed to say hate, which I am not. PLUS I have to do the greatest thing and that is be in the play of Annie and I'm sure I will get to be Annie because #1 - I have red hair and #2 - If I don't I will absolutely perish to death!
    We are thrilled to be doing the WORLD PREMIERE of this new show!
