Fancy Nancy, The Musical



“Fancy Nancy” and her friends, Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are super-excited to be dancing in a school recital. Nancy and Bree would be perfect mermaids, but Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. She soon discovers that being fancy comes in many forms – all it takes is imagination!
