Recognized as the oldest professional children’s theater in the country, the Nashville Children’s Theatre operates with the mission to foster creativity, spark imagination and build community. The theatre was formed in 1931 by the Junior League of Nashville as part of a commitment to establish children’s theaters across the country. It wasn’t until 1960 that the NCT called its own building home, which was renovated in 2007.

Kids can hone their acting skills through the theatre’s drama classes, and older kids perform full-length shows during the summer. Productions over the years have included everything from “Treasure Island” and “Ten Little Indians” to “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Charlotte’s Web.” This winter, the theater will present a special holiday version of “Cinderella” and a stage adaptation of the children’s book, The Snowy Day.
