Parlez-vous francais?

Dallas Children’s Theater Season opener Fancy Nancy: The Musical will have families dancing and discovering what it truly means to be fancy!

The trés irresistible world of the fanciest, funniest kid to ever take the stage opens Dallas Children’s Theater’s (DCT) 2015-2016 Season. Fancy Nancy: The Musical based on the popular book series by Jane O’Connor with Book & Lyrics by Susan DiLallo and Music & Lyrics by Danny Abosch runs at DCT September 18 – October 25.

Nancy’s refined etiquette is not enough to get her the lead role in the upcoming school play. She must summon the strength to forge ahead when a sudden turn of events casts her best friend as the lead. Every kid can relate to Nancy, with her boisterous attitude and tangled up feelings. Grown-ups will be equally dazzled while noting the heartwarming lessons that we never outgrow. The Mermaid Ballet recital, complete with a scene-stealing dancing shark, will have spirits dancing and all children hysterically happy.

Fancy Nancy Costume Contest

With DCT’s Fancy Nancy Costume Contest, some of Dallas’s youngest designers will have their designs showcased in the lobby with the grand prize costume designers’ work revealed on stage. DCT Costume Designer Lyle Huchton has been overwhelmed by the creative designs submitted and looks forward to working with these budding young artists.
