Review: 'The Snowy Day & Other Stories' charms young audiences at NCT

Where: 25 Middleton St., Nashville

    Review: 'The Snowy Day & Other Stories' charms young audiences at NCT
    The sun was shining brightly last Friday as children settled in to enjoy Nashville Children's Theatre's charming production of "The Snowy Day & Other Stories." It seems that even after a week of freezing temperatures and icy conditions, there's still something pretty magical about a new-fallen snow - especially when seen through the eyes of a child.

    Review: Studio Tenn sparks imagination with 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'
    There are some stories that seem to grow deeper with each retelling. That's certainly the case with C.S. Lewis' unforgettable novel "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." But as many times - and different ways - as Lewis' tale has been told, there's something quite lovely about Studio Tenn Theatre Company 's current staging.
