JACKtivites for December 22nd

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?

 

The Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas play will be on December 23rd and 26th from 9:30AM until 11:00AM at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse 1828 3rd Avenue, Box 3784 Rock Island, Illinois.
