Shrek the Musical
CYT Nashville is excited to present Shrek the Musical! "Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek. You don’t want to miss this high energy show!

Guys and Dolls
CYT Nashville is excited to present Guys and Dolls! Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. You don’t want to miss this classic show!

What the World Needs Now
The Music of Burt Bacharach
Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential figures of 20th-century popular music, Burt Bacharach has enjoyed major hits in all genres of music, including top 40, rhythm and blues, country, film scores and soundtracks. A six-time Grammy Award winner and three-time Oscar winner, Bacharach wrote more than 70 top 40 hits over his seven-decade career. He treasured his collaborations with fellow artists including Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross and Neil Diamond. Some of his timeless gems include "Raindrops keep falling on my Head, "I Say A Little Prayer," “(They Long to Be) Close to you,” “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again,” Walk On By” and "That's What Friends Are For."

The Best Thing About Christmas
Now in our third straight year after a debut in 2021, we are embarking on our first ever Tour, this time across our home state of Tennessee. It's almost like Christmas morning for us thinking about the chance to be in the room with each of you as we travel first to Cookeville, then Harriman, on to Franklin, and finally finishing up in Knoxville, Tennessee. We have recruited a super-talented and passionate cast...hailing from both right here in Tennessee and also from as far away as California and Florida. We are boldly bringing to you this message of hope, of redemption, of grit, and most of all the true meaning of Christmas... inspiring us to live to be an instrument in God's hands to help and lift those around us. We can't wait to welcome you to our living room in Music City as we answer the question "What is The Best Thing About Christmas?"
