Do your homeschool children add drama to your life? Well, add some to their lives and take them to the theatre. The Nashville Children’s Theatre (NCT) has just the ticket for you and your homeschool children.
The Nashville Children’s Theatre has been entertaining audiences for more than 80 years. The productions over the years have been ones geared towards children, which has introduced many young people to fine arts in the form of live dramatic presentation. Ever since the theatre has been presenting student matinees during regular school hours, the audiences have grown in numbers. So many of the productions have been childhood favorites and have brought other book classics to life for the students.
This year, student audiences will enjoy five of the 2016-2017 season productions during the weekday school matinees. Those school students include homeschoolers too. The performances that are open this season include:
Afflicted: Daughters of Salem: Wednesday, September 28 at 1 p.m.
Junie B. Jones Is Not A Crook: Wednesday, November 9 at 1 p.m.
Scot Copeland's Treasure Island: Wednesday, February 1 at 1 p.m.
And In This Corner: Cassius Clay: Wednesday, March 8 at 1 p.m.
Goodnight Moon: Wednesday, April 26 at 1 p.m.
Homeschoolers are invited to attend Homeschool Days at the NCT. They may attend as a family or bring a group of homeschoolers and enjoy live theatre at its best. These productions are open to the public and offered at a reduced ticket price making it more affordable for people to attend. That is not only a benefit for larger families, but all families. We get to experience that same theatrical performance and all of the talent while keeping the drama on the stage (at least for a couple of hours).
If you would like to attend one or all of the upcoming productions at the NCT, you may purchase your tickets online, by calling (615) 252-4675 or at the NCT box office. The first performance is on Wednesday, September 28, of Afflicted: Daughters of Salem. Although you may purchase tickets at the door, I would suggest you purchase them in advance. Tickets for NCT homeschool performances sell fast.
