The story follows Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel, who are going to be performing in their very first show, "Deep Sea Dances." Nancy is positive, that's fancy for 100 percent sure, that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one she wanted?
The show is geared towards children 2 - 10 years old. Called "a family-friendly production brimming with style and wit" (New York Metro Parents), FANCY NANCY THE MUSICAL has been critically and popularly acclaimed since its opening at Vital Theatre Company in September 2012. The Fancy Nancy Cast Recording won the 2013 Off-Broadway Kids Original Musical CD of the Year.
