Children Programs


Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol will be interpreted and open captioned.  There will also be assistive listening devices available as well.  


Young Life is made up of people like you - who know that life was meant to be lived to the fullest. Young Life has been reaching kids since the 1940s. There are Young Life clubs all over the world and in every state, but currently only 4 Deaf Young Life clubs in the country--we want to see that number grow by starting a Deaf Young Life club right here in Nashville.

If you're an adult who cares about kids, there are tons of ways to get involved.

We promise three things: you'll have outrageous fun, you'll always belong and we'll talk about what really matters in life - including God's extravagant love for you. Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.   

Come learn more about Young Life, Deaf Young Life, and the opportunity right here in Nashville to impact the lives of Deaf/Hard of Hearing kids.

ASL interpreters will be provided for the event. Dessert will be served. Young Life Office: (615) 933-9232

Saturday, Jan 26 is an open-captioned performance of NCT's Don't Tell Me I Can't Fly. Meet Tonia – an artistic 9 year-old with fantastic dreams of a giant future. Tonia's mom wants her to be like a doll, perfectly mannered and always the same age. Tonia's dad wants her to blend into the crowd in a world where African-Americans who stand tall are easier to cut down. This regional premiere is an engaging and humorous look at family life inspired by the life and work of collage artist Della Wells. Approximate Runtime: 90 minutes (weekend performances have an intermission) Open captioning uses a text display to provide a simultaneous transcription of dialogue, lyrics, and sound effects during a live performance. The service is open to everyone for viewing in a designated seating area. Open-Captioning is co-sponsored by Tennessee Captioning.

Based on the book by Dr. Seuss

Play originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain 


For the 56 years the Cat’s been on the page,

We could never get rights to put him on our stage.

We’ve asked quite politely, we’ve pleaded just so,

But the answer was always, no, no, no, no, NO!

Now, thanks to the National Theatre of Britain,

At last, a stage version has finally been written!

With no added text (lots of mime, dance and movement)

And Seuss illustrations (which need no improvement).

The Cat in the Hat will be here in the spring,

But he won’t be alone, no! He’s going to bring

Dick and Sally, the Pink Fish, Thing One and Thing Two!

They’re all going to be here, so how about you?


Appropriate for families with children of all ages.


Approximate runtime: Approx. 75 minutes plus a 10 minute intermission at weekend performances
