2016-17 Board of Trustees


As the nation’s oldest professional theatre for young audiences, Nashville Children’s Theatre has deep roots in and a long history with the community.   Our Board of Trustees represent a diverse cross-section of Nashville and the surrounding areas.  While many of our members either have children who participate in NCT’s programs, or grew up participating themselves, others simply share our belief that a cultural heritage is the right of ALL children.

For information about NCT's Board of Trustees, contact Bennett Tarleton at 615-254-9103.
