Your look ahead at Valley Arts

Award-winning theater: Vital Theatre Company presents "Fancy Nancy," 1 and 4 p.m. Feb. 22, Miller Symphony Hall, 23 N. Sixth St., Allentown. The musical is based on the series of books written by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. In the storyline, Fancy Nancy, above, and her friends, Bree, Rhonda, Wanda and Lionel, are going to perform in their very first show, "Deep Sea Dances." Nancy is "positive" (that's "fancy" for 100-percent sure) she and Bree will be picked to play the mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one that she wanted? Vital Theatre Company, based in New York City, received the 2012 Off-Broadway Alliance Awards Best Family Show for "StinkyKids The Musical" and the American Theatre Wing Award for Continued Commitment to Excellence in Theatre in 2006 and 2007. Tickets: allentownsymphony.org, 610-432-6715
