WABASH — Holiday fun will take place at the Honeywell Center with its presentation of “Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25. Tickets are $9 (balcony) and $14 (main floor). Corporate sponsorship is provided by Black’s Lawn and Maintenance.
What could be fancier than Christmas presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations and cookies with sprinkles! This year, Nancy is especially excited about decorating the tree. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money and has been waiting for Christmas to come. But when things don’t turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?
Jane O’Connor, author of the Fancy Nancy book series is an editor at a major publishing house and has written more than seventy books for children, including the New York Times bestselling Fancy Nancy series, which is comprised of over 50 titles so far.
Robin Preiss Glasser, book illustrator for the Fancy Nancy series, wore tiaras and tutus when she danced as a soloist with the Pennsylvania Ballet. Now she happily spends her days in jeans, drawing. She has illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including the now classic and beloved Fancy Nancy series. In 2013, she won the Children’s Choice Award for Best Illustrator of the Year for “Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet.”
Tickets may be purchased at the Honeywell Center Box Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling (260) 563-1102, or online at www.honeywellcenter.org.
