Ooh la la! Fancy Nancy adores glitter and sparkles and tiaras. It’s time for Nancy’s dance class to perform the Deep Sea Ballet, and Nancy dreams of playing the fanciest creature of all—a mermaid. What is Nancy to do when she is assigned to play a dull TREE? Join Nancy and friends as they discover that anybody can be a star—with the right dash of imagination and “joie de vivre” (that’s fancy for “joy of life!”)

Looking for more ways to practice your best fancy “etiquette”? (That’s fancy for “manners.”) Nancy cordially invites you to join her at a “posh” and “exquisite” tea party following the play on three different Saturdays, November 5, 12 and 19. $10 per person. Pinkies Up!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is FUN. It’s packed full of spirited
action, laugh-out-loud comedy, mistaken identities and
mischief-makers. There is magic in this story of Hermia, Helena,
Lysander and Demetrius, four young adults caught up in round-robin
shenanigans of falling in love. We believe it is the perfect play for
Shakespeare “newbies.” For students who are studying any of
Shakespeare’s plays, this will bring their English curriculum to life in the
most colorful, engaging way.
“The whole story sounds a bit like a Harry Potter novel: Ordinary
teenagers encounter a magical world, and it changes their lives forever.
(That Shakespeare fellow knew what he was doing.)” –Ken Ludwig

One of the holiday stories that families treasure most is the classic
tale by Charles Dickens. This fresh and funny twist on the beloved
classic will not only warm your heart like a toasty marshmallow on a
cup of hot cocoa but it also guarantees spirited laughter from the
whole family!
