Vital Theatre Company, winner of the 2012 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Family Show, is pleased to announce its 2012-2013 Family Programming season in its home theatre at 76th Street and Broadway. Featuring four musicals for children and families, this year’s Vital season includes two world premieres and two returning favorites. In Fancy Nancy The Musical and Show Way, two popular children’s books are newly adapted for the stage. Vital favorites Angelina Ballerina™ The Very Merry Holiday Musical and A (Tooth) Fairy Tale return to round out the season. This lineup continues Vital’s mission to produce entertaining and educational live theatre for families and young audiences.
The 2012-2013 season opens with the world premiere of FANCY NANCY THE MUSICAL. 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?
Based on the popular children’s book series by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, this new musical, with a book and lyrics by Susan DiLallo and music and lyrics by Danny Abosch, plays September 29—November 12 on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am and 1 pm, with special school holiday performances on October 8 and 17, and November 6 and 12 at 11 am and 1 pm.
