Fancy Nancy the Musical – Little Rock

Dress up in your most glamorous attire, pour a spot of tea, and join us for the most elegant musical ever. Nancy and her pals Wanda, Rhonda, Bree, and Lionel are thrilled to be dancing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive – (that’s fancy for 100% sure) – that she will be cast as the mermaid. When another girl gets the role, Nancy is stuck playing a dull, dreary tree. But she learns that anyone and anything can be fancy. All it takes is a dash of imagination.
