Oregon Children's Theatre Presents FANCY NANCY, Beg. Today

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 sure she will be cast as a shimmering mermaid, but ends up as an ordinary tree instead. 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!

Fancy Nancy was originally produced at New York's Vital Theater, the same company that originally brought the wildly popular Pinkalicious to the stage. It is based on the bestselling children's book series by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. This magnifique musical-that's fancy for great show-begins performances on May 10, 2014. Audience members are invited to attend in their most elegant attire-that's fancy for stylish.

"I love Nancy," says director, Stan Foote. "She just aspires to be a better person. And when she comes up against obstacles, she recovers and glories in the greater good!"

Some of the show's big ideas include:
• Adding a little extra color, music, vocabulary or fancy flair is a great way to make your day special.
• Being fancy isn't just for girls.
• Even when we try our hardest, we can't always get what we want.
• It's okay to feel jealous sometimes.

Based on the book by Jane O'Connor. Book and lyrics bySusan DiLallo. Music and lyrics by Danny Abosch. Original orchestrations by Danny Abosch.

The cast features Madison Wray as Nancy, Haley Ward as Bree, Annie Barker as Rhonda, Hannah Wilson as Wanda, Brendan Long as Lionel, and Dani Baldwin as Nancy's mom.

The creative team includes: Stan Foote (Director), Darcy White (Musical Director), Daniel Meeker (Scenic Designer), Mikaela Gladstone-Saucedo (Costume Designer), Kristeen Crosser (Lighting Designer), Sara Mishler Martins (Choreographer), Em Gustason (Sound Designer), Kaye Blankenship (Props Master).
