New Production!

"One winter morning, Peter woke up and looked out the window... Snow!"

"Full of joy and imagination" - Amy Stumpfl, The Tennessean

"Engaging, exciting, endearing and absolutely hilarious!" - Crystal Bowron, Nashville Fun for Families

Oh, the magic of a snowy day! Follow Peter and his friends as they romp and play, starting snowball fights and making snow angels in this imaginative ode to childhood joys and the challenges of growing up. Packed with humor and fun, this production uses wonderfully innovative shadow puppetry and live action to celebrate Keats’ treasured characters.

An adaptation of Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, A Letter to Amy, and groundbreaking Caldecott Winner The Snowy Day, this uplifting story collection encourage us to play and live life to the fullest each day.

Nashville Children's Theatre builds all of our productions right here in Nashville. From concept to construction, our artisans create original designs for each production. 

On August 28, 29 and 30, shadow puppet designer Karly Bergmann worked with our NCT creative team for The Snowy Day to start designing the shadow puppet element which we will see in the full production in January 2018. Take a peek below.

After months of meetings with stage director Alicia Fuss and the entire design team, Scott Leathers has preliminary scenic renderings and Patricia Taber has completed the costume renderings for this groundbreaking production.
