Who is Onstage?

Nashville Children's Theatre employs some of Nashville's finest professional adult actors on stage to bring the highest quality performances to student groups during weekday performances and to families on evening and weekend public performances.

Kids age 3 - 18 try on their own acting skills through NCT's Drama Classes, with older students performing in full-length student productions during the summer months.
