"It's a great program. It's great for kids on many different levels. I'd recommend for all ages. For kids who love theatre, NCT teaches them great skills they'll need to know. For kids who don't really 'love' theatre, it teaches them to be fun and creative and use their imagination."

Emerging Artists Production - Songs for a New World

SongsNewWorldLogo.jpg

This contemporary song cycle weaves characters and history together, illuminating the timelessness of self-discovery. It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice... or take a stand... or turn around and go back.

The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown, this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make. With a score that runs the gamut of today's popular music, Songs for a New World will challenge Emerging Artists as they explore musical storytelling in a completely fresh way.

Ages: 14-18
Rehearsal Dates: July 1-July 25, M-F: 4-9 pm; Saturdays: 10 am - 6 pm; Sunday, July 21: 1-7 pm (Some cast members may be called the week of July 24th based on availability.)
Location: Nashville Children’s Theatre
Performance Dates: July 26 and July 27 at 7 pm; July 28 at 2 pm 

Audition Dates: Feb 16th & Feb 17th, 2-6 pm

Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Originally Produced by the WPA Theatre, New York City, 1995 (Kyle Renick, Artistic Director)
Original Orchestration by Brian Besterman and Jason Robert Brown
