Financial Assistance

Family Access Membership (FAM)

Nashville Children's Theatre's Family Access Membership, or FAM, is a streamlined way of offering scholarships to our classes and camps, as well as discounted tickets to our shows. Scholarships and discounts are offered to families on a sliding scale based on financial need.  We use the national guidelines for free and reduced lunch to assign levels of assistance.

We are now accepting applications and scholarship requests for Fall 2017. The priority deadline for scholarship requests is Monday, August 28th at 8:00 a.m. We will continue to accept requests on a rolling basis until all scholarships have been distributed, but all requests received before the priority deadline will receive a response by Friday, August 31st at 4:00 p.m.

A new application must be filled out at the beginning of each new yearly season at NCT (August of each year).  Please access the applications below, follow the instructions carefully, reading each step to ensure proper submission of FAM and Scholarship applications.
