Synopsis: Fancy Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are going to be performing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive, that’s fancy for 100 percent sure, that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn’t the one she wanted?


Character Breakdown: 


Caucasian Adult female actress to play 8 year old girl.
A precocious little girl who loves tea parties, French, mermaids and teaching others how to be fancy. When her dreams of playing a mermaid in her first dance recital are crushed she learns an even more important lesson. Strong Mezzo Soprano mix


African American Adult female actor to play 8 year old girl.
Nancy’s best friend. Shares Nancy’s love of fanciness and tea parties. Does her best to be a loyal friend, even when she wins the coveted mermaid role. Sweet Mezzo Soprano mix


Adult male actor to play 8 year old boy.
Friend of Nancy, Wanda and Rhonda. An energetic class clown, not nearly as excited about fanciness as his friends but always ready for fun. Leads the audience in a Shark Rap during the school dance recital. Tenor with great comedic timing.

Rhonda / Wanda:

2 adult female actresses to play twin 8 year old girls. Need not actually be twins. More tomboyish than Nancy, very into sports and competitive with each other. Belters with great comedic timing


* NOTE: The role of Mom has already been cast.
