Bristol Riverside Theatre to Welcome Vita Theatre Company for FANCY NANCY, 3/1-2
For one weekend only, Bristol Riverside Theatre presents the Vital Theatre Company performing Fancy Nancy, The Musical based on the popular children's book. Performances are Saturday, March 1 and Sunday, March 2 at 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00 both days. Tickets ($15 for children and $25 for adults) are available by visiting brtstage.org or calling the BRT Box Office at 215-785-0100. All six performances are at Bristol Riverside Theatre (120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol, PA).
Fancy Nancy and her friends, Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel 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?
"We are delighted to be presenting of the return of the Vital Theatre Company which has enchanted our audiences in past seasons with Pinkalicious and Angelina Ballerina," said Amy Kaissar, BRT's Managing Director.
