Westport Country Playhouse announces that its presentation of "Fancy Nancy, The Musical" on Sunday, January 27, is sold out. Tickets are still available for upcoming shows in The Playhouse's Family Festivities Series, including "Junie B. Jones," on Sunday, February 10, starring outspoken, precocious, lovable Junie B. Jones in a new musical about new friends, new glasses, sugar cookies, and the annual kickball tournament.
On Sunday, March 3, the musical adventure "How I Became a Pirate" will bring to The Playhouse stage young Jeremy Jacob, who is recruited by Captain Braid Beard and his mates to join the pirate crew on a quest to bury their treasure. "The Little Engine That Could Earns Her Whistle," on Sunday, April 7, is a new musical that portrays Watty Piper's timeless tale about hard work, self-confidence, friendship, and believing that anything is possible.
Performances are at 1 and 4 p.m. One hour before each performance, there will be pre-show children's activities available.
Family Festivities is supported in part by a contribution from the First Niagara Bank Foundation. Family Festivities Partners are Meredith and David Bukzin.
In conjunction with the Family Festivities Series, The Playhouse is hosting a book collection for Read to Grow, Inc., a statewide nonprofit organization that helps parents take an active role in their children's literacy development by providing free children's books to families with limited access and to community resources that serve them. At each Family Festivities performance, bins will be located in The Playhouse lobby for donations of gently used and new children's books which will be given to families and programs in the greater Fairfield County area through Read to Grow.
