Date Line Toronto
Come one, come all to a once in a lifetime event at the Metropolitan Toronto Convention Center. Nancy will be doing two performances of her one woman show, My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy on Saturday, October 16th.
This whimsical look at life as the "anonymous" voice of Bart Simpson, is a staged rendition of her best-selling autobiography of the same name. The play puts into a theatrical context the often hilarious journey Nancy has been on for the past 17 years. She will explore new facets of her life as well, and invite the audience into her world as never before.
Hosted by Animation Connection, and including a talk and drawing demonstration by Simpsons director David Silverman, this is a Simpsons fan extravaganza that must not be missed.
Fans will also be treated to a huge show and sale of original artwork used in creating The Simpsons. This is a great opportunity to get a one-of-a-kind cel or drawing, and a personalized dedication card signed by Nancy. For those who can't make the trip to Canada's largest city, Animation Connection offers worldwide shipping!

Nancy at Pixar
Nancy was recently invited to Pixar Studios to give her introductory lecture to the staff of artists, designers and computer "tekkies". Director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) was a gracious host, taking Nancy, her assistant Janelle Hynes and her agent Marcia Hurwitz (Innovative Artists) on a full-scale tour of the studio.
"I find it difficult," said Nancy, "imagining where else I would want to work besides in a studio doing the voices for animation, but after visiting Pixar, I've reconsidered! Pixar isn't just a studio that creates aesthetics and positive messages for all ages with animation. It is also a center for revitalizing the art form itselfhelping to catapult animation into this new century with all the bells and whistles that make it fun."
