Musical Theatre: Selections from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas – Fall Break (10/07-10/11)

Step into the eerie and enchanting world of Jack Skellington, where every ghoul and goblin becomes a star in this spine-chilling camp! In this class, students will learn basic choreography and vocal technique as they prepare a medley of popular musical numbers from the hit movie musical Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Working as an ensemble, this class builds the essential musical theatre skills for emerging Musical Theatre stars!

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

*Students will work on and perform 1-3 songs from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas for their Sharing Performance on Friday. This is NOT a full production camp.

Musical Theatre Classes at this Age Range work on:
• Understanding basic choreography
• Learning about proper breath control while singing
• Understanding musical structure and basic harmonies
• Maintaining vocal volume while dancing
• Learning stage directions and theatre vocabulary
• Understanding spacing (finding their window) during choreographed numbers
• Using loud, clear voices
• Moving as a specific character
• Filling a song with clear and distinct character choices
• Working as an ensemble
• Exercising discipline as they work toward the goal of the show
• Having an absolute blast

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.
