Chattanooga Theatre Centre Receives First Horizon Foundation Grant To Produce Theatre For The Very Young

  • Monday, March 20, 2023

Chattanooga Theatre Centre reintroduces its Theatre for the Very Young performances this spring with support from a First Horizon Foundation grant. This funding will allow children ages three to six to experience the art of theatre by immersing them in an interactive original performance called Plant, Grow, Pick!

Plant, Grow, Pick! Is an upbeat and endearing 30-minute performance featuring music, movement, and interactive storytelling. This educational and immersive program is specifically designed for children under the age of six. During the show, professional actors invite the children to become part of the experience as they play different plants in the “garden” and learn about seasons, weather, plants, farming, and vegetables.

“We are very grateful for First Horizon Foundation’s support of the Theatre for the Very Young Program and Plant, Grow, Pick!” said Rodney Van Valkenburg, executive director of the Chattanooga Theatre Centre. “We love seeing how engaged and interactive the children are with the cast. They are learning new concepts and having fun.”

Performances of Plant, Grow, Pick! at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre will be held on Thursday, March 23 and Wednesday, March 29 at 10:30 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at

To schedule a performance of the Theatre for the Very Young’s Plant, Grow, Pick! at your school or childcare center, contact the Chattanooga Theatre Centre’s Education Department at 267-8538 Ext. 313 or email
