Fancy Nancy the Musical

One of the joys of homeschooling, is going on homeschool field trips.  Technically, we were simply taking our daughter to see a play that she wanted to see, but since we’re homeschoolers, we get to call it a field trip.  Yay!

My daughter loves reading Fancy Nancy books.  She got her first Fancy Nancy book when she was 2 years old.  It was a gift from one of my best friends.  At the time, I had no idea who Fancy Nancy was, and was a little skeptical about such a girly book.  My daughter, on the other hand, immediately fell in love with the book.  Since then, we have acquired several other Fancy Nancy books, as well as, checked many out from the library.  Fancy Nancy has become one of my daughter’s favorite book characters.

So when my husband heard there was going to be a Fancy Nancy play, he suggested we take Kayla.  I didn’t pay much attention to him at first.  My friend wanted to go to the show with us, and do a girls day out.  I couldn’t really see my husband going to this play.  But, to my surprise, he bought the tickets and took us to the show.

It was a cute show for little girls.  It’s only an hour long with no intermission, but seemed appropriate for the age group of the audience.  If it had been any longer, I think they would have lost the attention of the younger kids.

My daughter enjoyed getting dressed up and carrying a purse for the day.  The show was funny and upbeat.  The actors did a wonderful job playing the parts.  Fancy Nancy was her usual dramatic, but lovable self.  It was a wonderful family field trip.

For my daughter, one of the best parts was getting to meet Fancy Nancy after the play.  She got Nancy’s autograph, and took a picture with her.  Kayla was smiling from ear to ear.
