Nashville's Childrens Theater - planning for next year's field trips

For each show, NCT Education staff creates a curriculum guide

relating the themes of the show to the

Tennessee Common Core


State Curriculum Standards

All students, parents, and teachers included in your group's payment will receive the $8.00 group ticket rate. For every 10 students in your group, you will receive one complimentary educator ticket.

Grant funds are available to teachers seeking subsidy support to bring their students to the theatre. The Tennessee Arts Commission (TAC) and Target Field Trip program begin accepting applications in August 2016, so please plan ahead.

If you apply for a grant and are turned down, NCT will work with you to bring your class!

Here are our stats for the year:

Remember: Keep kids reading all summer with free audio books. For you too! Great for long car trips.

Audiobooks has a terrific FREE program to keep kids reading all summer. It says it's for 13 and up but we have precocious readers here so I recommend it for all, teacher included. The books are matched nonfiction and fiction with similar themes. The books are only available for one week each so kids need to check the site weekly. Check it out! Click here:
