Over the past 18 years, the Act Too Players have worked hard to create the premiere summer theatre
program to meet the creative needs of youths ages 3 to 18 while providing practical hours for easy scheduling for parents.
Each summer, Act Too Players offers a combination of weeklong day camps, mini-sessions, and our full production summer intensives taught by the best in the Nashville theatre industry. Every student gets the opportunity to rehearse with the best directors, musical directors, and technical staff. Our goal is to instruct your child on the art of theatre while providing a fun, safe, environment. Our theatre summer camps are ideal for Franklin, Brentwood, Spring Hill, Nashville, and Murfreesboro but have students as far as Alabama enrolled in our program.
We pride ourselves in our well respected prestigious training program and look forward to giving your star the best theatrical experience in Middle Tennessee.
IF YOU DO NOT SEE A WAIT LIST OR REGISTER BUTTON THAT MEANS THAT BOTH THE CLASS AND THE WAIT LIST IS FULL.
The Summer Intensive will meet for 3 hours twice a week over the course of 5 to 7 weeks.
Our intensives will encompass the entire theatrical experience including auditioning, choreography, music, vocal work, staging, with some prop and set work throughout the intensive. This is our immersive theatre experience for all levels of theatre. It is the goal of the Act Too Players staff to provide a professional environment from rehearsals to working with the industry best in lighting and sound at the Franklin Theatre.
Our 2020 Summer Intensives will culminate in a fully staged musical production of each show to be performed at the beautiful, historic Franklin Theatre.
Based on Louisa May Alcott's American classic, this Civil War story of love and family stands the test of time.
Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. Little Women features plenty of great opportunities for female actors and singers ranging in age from teenage to 60 years old.
The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

Your favorite practically perfect nanny takes center stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious adventure based on the award-winning Broadway musical and classic Walt Disney film.
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins JR. is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs and breathtaking dance numbers. This show is a perfect opportunity to showcase a strong, iconic female performer, as well as unique special effects and illusions.
