Mini Theatre Voyagers
6/26-6/30

You might think your 4 or 5 year-old makes enough of their own drama, but in Mini Theatre Voyagers they’ll use their creative energy for good. This class allows students the opportunity to play with their favorite stories and picture books through theatre, individual crafts, music, and dance. Growing artistically and socially in a supportive environment, campers are encouraged to let their imaginations go wild and harness their creativity to collaborate with others.

All classes in the Voyagers series are designed to be repeated, with students exploring and experiencing new stories, exercises, and activities each camp.

At this age-level, our focus is more on the process of creative play, exploration, and expression and unlike other Voyagers series classes, there will not be a rehearsed presentation at the end of the week. However, Mini Theatre Voyagers’ classes will present a sharing of favorite games, exercises, and activities in their classroom with families at the end of the week.

Mini Theatre Voyagers students learn how to:

  • Use loud, clear voices
  • Move through the space as different characters
  • Identify beginning stage directions and theatre vocabulary
  • Create group-based imaginative play
  • Start creative thinking towards storytelling
  • Communicate their feelings or feelings of characters
  • Express their creative thoughts physically and verbally
  • Wait their turn to express those creative thoughts
  • Have an absolute blast

NCT’s focus is always the healthy development of young people. We believe that the skills that students learn in the process of creative play will serve them in their everyday lives as well as provide a foundation if they choose to continue to more theatre work (which we hope they do!).

NCT offers free extended care for our families. Before Care opens at 7:30 am and After Care closes at 5:30 pm. You can add this service during registration or on a day-to-day basis during the camp week. Extended care consists of supervised unstructured free time. Students are welcome to bring a book or electronic device (that NCT is not responsible for). Additionally, NCT provides coloring sheets, board games, marble towers, etc for students who are interested. Also, during after care, we will also have a daily option of a G or PG-rated children’s movie playing as an activity choice.

*There may be two sections of this class. If participating with a friend/sibling (of the same age) and you would like them in the same class, please indicate this in the “friend request” question during registration. If you would prefer the sibling be in another section of the class (if possible), please indicate in that field.

Every Child Belongs Here

Our Drama School continually strives to learn and grow as the world changes in relation to access and inclusion practices. Here are just a few of the ways we accommodate every student.

Accessibility

NCT is completely wheelchair accessible, and we make accommodations for mobility and physical disabilities.

Informed Teachers

All Teaching Artists have continued training on inclusion, implicit bias, and trauma-informed practices.

Sensory Regulation

Classrooms have 'chill corners' where students can chill if activities become over-stimulating. Noise-canceling headphones and fidget tools are also available.

Attention Aids

Visual class schedules are utilized so students know what to expect each day. We also use visual time timers to help students with time-management.

Class Expectations

All classes utilize verbal as well as discussed written agreements. Students help with the creation of and thus understand classroom behavioral expectations.

Inclusive Nametags

Nametags are printed using the class color as well as listing the color names for colorblind students. Additionally, student and teacher pronouns are listed on all nametags.

A class Social Story can be found below to help navigate our classes. A Social Story is a tool to help improve a child’s understanding of expectations during an unfamiliar event and were originally designed to support neurodivergent students. However, this can be a useful tool for any student who is unsure about what to expect from a new experience. We share these resources to make NCT classes inclusive for ALL students.

We invite you to learn more about all of our accessibility and inclusion practices as well as our departmental teaching philosophy.

NCT Scholarships

We believe that all young people in Middle Tennessee deserve access to high-quality arts programming. NCT offers scholarships, ticket discounts and more.
