Alison Worden
Performing Arts Program Specialist

Alison Worden coordinates Williamson County Parks and Recreation’s Children’s Theatre Programs. Alison’s two children have grown up in WCPR’s children’s theatre programs – one on stage and one backstage. She loved being around the atmosphere of it so much that she decided to bring her years of work experience in administrative, non-profit, and Human Resources work to WCPR in this role. In the 4 years since, she has expanded the offerings, adding class and audition-based programs such as Straight to the Stars Youth Theatre (non-musical productions for high schoolers), Little Stars (introductory musical theatre classes for our youngest performers), and expanding the Musical Theatre Experience Program classes to the Nolensville area.

Alison enjoys working with the directors, parents, and children involved in the different programs. If you have questions about Williamson County Parks and Recreation’s children’s theatre offerings, please reach out to her.
