Fancy Nancy the Musical  
Larcom Theatre Fancy Nancy the Musical
 
The simply fabulous little girl whose choice of wardrobe leans towards feather boas, fairy wings and fuzzy slippers, Fancy Nancy stars in her very own fun-filled musical for kids, complete with great songs, clever lyrics and valuable lessons. After a sold-out run at Arlington's Regent Theatre, Boston Children's Theatre brings this sparkling production to The Larcom Theatre. Based on the best-selling children's books by Jane O'Connor, Fancy Nancy the Musical follows the always-posh Nancy and her friends as they prepare for their very first school recital. Nancy is positive that she'll be selected for the lead. But when another girl wins the coveted role, Nancy's stuck playing a dreary tree. But no matter, she's determined to bring some of her signature ooh-la-la to the mundane role.

You've seen getaway cars and getaway boats, but very rarely do you encounter a getaway fruit, especially one as large and as magical as the one in James and the Giant Peach.

In this youth production of the enchanting musical adaption, you'll fly away with James and his charming crew of insect friends on their hilarious trans-Atlantic journey to the Big Apple. James, the wise Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm will entertain the entire family with their amazing adventures in this Advanced Young Company Ensemble performance of James and the Giant Peach at Stoneham Theatre.
