What could be fancier than Christmas? Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles - and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel. Ooh la la! This year, Nancy is especially excited. After selling some of her old gowns and accessories, Nancy has enough money to buy a brand-new sparkly tree topper. She can't wait to decorate the Christmas tree. But when things don't turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

"Fortunately, there's...much more to Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas an adaptation from Vital Theater Company...The hour long musical...has a dramatic tension....as well as a refreshing sound:...elements of swing well as contemporary pop... Everyone learns the true meaning of the holiday...but what makes "Splendiferous Christmas: winning is that it dares to be a little naughty as well as nice."
"When it comes to peppy musicalizations of super-popular picture books...Vital Children's Theatre has cornered the market...Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas is a wonderful holiday indulgence...an energetic and colorful production... in addition to being entertained, young audiences will be inspired to think about generosity, kindness and the true spirit of the holidays. And as usual with Vital shows, the songs are catchy and charming."
"When you watch the play, Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas you will realize that Fancy Nancy is not too fancy and is someone with many good qualities that you want your children to learn from. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money, but as usual, things don't turn out the way Nancy would like. In the end Nancy teaches us that her family and especially her sister, Jojo,are more important than any fancy stuff that she could buy."
