The NCT Drama School

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.

If you are planning on applying for discounted tickets only, please only fill out the FAM Application Form.  If you are planning on applying for a camp/class scholarship, please fill out BOTH the FAM Application form and the Camp/Class Scholarship form.  A new FAM Application Form must be filled out at the beginning of every NCT season (August of each year).  A new Camp/Class Scholarship Application Form must be filled out for each session of camp offerings (Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer).  If you have filled out a FAM Application Form previously, you do not have to fill out an additional FAM Application form for each Camp/Class session.

Application and scholarship requests for the 2018-19 Season and Spring Classes will be accepted starting November 6th, 2018.  Forms submitted before their respective acceptance dates will not be accepted.

The priority deadline for Spring class scholarship requests is November 16th, at 9 am. We will continue to accept requests on a rolling basis until all scholarships have been distributed for Fall, but all requests received before the priority deadline will receive a response by Friday, November 30th.
