Nashville Rep is creating brand-new youth and student programming with the launch of The Nashville Rep Conservatory. It kicks off this summer with Nashville's first and only overnight theater camp — Broadway Theatre Camp at Camp Widjiwagan. Camp sessions for ages 7 – 15 take place June 2 – 8 and June 1 – 27. Cost is $175 per week.

In addition, throughout the 2019 – 2020 season, Nashville Rep will host master classes  with theater professionals starting with Jelani Alladin, one of the original stars of Disney's Frozen on Broadway.

The Nashville Rep Conservatory will also feature a new Young Writers' Program in partnership with The Theater Bug. All programs will lead up to a large student musical when the Conservatory produces its first full-fledged production in summer 2020.


Season tickets for the 2019 – 2020 season are on sale now.
