Fancy Nancy, the Musical
by Magik Theatre
Mar. 11 - Apr. 17, 2016
Fancy Nancy and her friends are performing in their very first show, "Deep Sea Dances." Nancy is positive that she and her friend Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring her fancy flair to the part, even though it isn't the one she wanted?
The first book in the Fancy Nancy series spent almost two years on the New York Times bestseller list, and proved to be so popular that the series now numbers more than 70 books, with a live theatrical play as a spin-off. Fancy Nancy: the Musical opened off-Broadway on 2012, and continues to run in New York. Now Nancy brings her special brand of fancy to San Antonio, as The Magik Theatre stages its own production of Fancy Nancy: the Musical.
For opening night on Friday, March 11, Magik will kick off the show’s run with a special celebration. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for activities including crafts; a visit from Ballet San Antonio dancers and representatives of the Girl Scouts; a chance to meet the cast; and an on-stage dance lesson. Opening-night audience members are invited to wear their fanciest finery. Showtime will be 7:00 p.m.
The cast includes Ashtyn Sonner as Fancy Nancy; Jovi Lee as Bree; Ginger Gamble Martel as Rhonda; Jackie Parma as Wanda; Devin Collins as Lionel; and Ariel Rosen as Mother. Director for Fancy Nancy: the Musical is Sam Weeks.
The show will run through April 17. Tickets are $15 for adults or $12 for children (children under two free), with group rates also available. Reservations are required – for tickets or more information, go to The Magik Theatre’s webpage
