Happy November! There is so much awesome work going on in Nashville this month. Check out this guide to all of the theatre events in Nashville and surrounding areas:



White Elephant by Sofia Tosches@ Darkhorse Theatre

November 17-26


An original work written and directed by Sofia Tosches! “Eight millennial “friends” gather together for a White Elephant gift exchange Christmas party. While the stockings may be hung by the chimney with care, St. Nicholas is probably staying as far away from this shit show as possible. People are stressed, people are drunk, and people are picking gifts from under the tree. Will they get what they want? Or will their secrets be what gets unwrapped this year?”

Soon My Love by Malinda Morgan: Consider This Theater Company @ Mills-Pate Arts Center

November 11-20


Another original work written and directed by Malinda Morgan! “Two days after Mark passes away the family has to reconcile with his death and Charlotte’s dementia. Charlotte tells stories of her life until she walks into the memories she is talking about. Follow Charlotte on her journey as she says goodbye to her family and decides if she would do everything the same all over again. If given a second chance would she make the same choices.”

When We Were Young and Unafraid by Sarah Treem: Actors Bridge Ensemble @ ABE Studio

November 4-13


Nashville premiere! “In the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’s college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside of Agnes’s tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help.”

A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen: Belmont University

Nov 4-12


“A Doll’s House gives us a look inside the family life of Nora and Torvold Helmer. They are well-to-do and, by appearance, happy, preparing to celebrate Christmas as the play begins. It doesn’t take long for cracks to appear in the façade as blackmail, lies and love triangles begin to decay the foundations of the Helmer household, leading to a conclusion so shocking for its time that Ibsen was forced to provide an alternate ending.”




Evil Dead: Radical Arts @ Love & Exile

Oct 21-Nov 6 2022


This musical is based on the cult classic Evil Dead films from the 80s and is absolutely campy and hilarious. College kids head to a cabin in the woods and the night takes an unexpected turn! Radical Arts production will be held in East Nashville at Love & Exile.

Hadestown national tour: Tennessee Performing Arts Center (Andrew Jackson Hall)

November 1-6



Hadestown is coming to Nashville! “Welcome to HADESTOWN, where a song can change your fate. Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the 2020 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album, this acclaimed new show from celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always. Intertwining two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — HADESTOWN is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.”

The Marvellous Wonderettes: Williamson County Performing Arts Center

November 4-6



“This smash Off-Broadway hit takes us to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet and learn about the lives and loves of Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. When the Wonderettes reunite to perform at their 10-year reunion, we learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring more than 30 classic 50s and 60s hits, including ‘Lollipop,’ ‘Mr. Sandman,’’Lipstick on Your Collar,’ ‘It’s my Party,’ and ‘Respect,’the Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!”

Sister Act: Center for the Arts

November 4-20



“Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be found: a convent! Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community.”

Pippin: TMProductions and Found Movement Group

November 4-12


“With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man’s journey to be extraordinary. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.”

She Loves Me: Trevecca Nazarene University

Oct 28-Nov 6


“Based on the play by Miklos Laszlo from which several films were adapted—including 1940’s *The Shop Around The Corner* and 1998’s *You’ve Got Mail*—this Tony Award-nominated comedy is one of the last from the golden age of musicals and has endured as an audience favorite for well over half a century.”

Into the Woods: Belmont University

Nov 18-20


“Into the Woods is an epic story about wishes, family, and the consequences caused by the choices we make. The award-winning story features your favorite Grimm brothers’ fairytale characters and investigates the darker side of the human condition; all told through the compelling lens of Sondheim’s exquisite score and complex yet engaging lyrics.”


Staged Readings


Ingram New Works Festival: Nashville Repertory Theatre @ Johnson Theatre (TPAC)

Nashville’s Annual Celebration of New Plays & Playwrights

“The culmination of the Ingram New Works Project, the festival features the premiere public reading of the new plays developed during the residency.”
