Nashville Children’s Theatre kicks off its 82nd season with John Glore’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, the 1962 science-fiction classic by Madeleine L’Engle. In it, three youngsters and three unusual associates travel to other worlds to battle aliens who threaten to destroy the Earth. For the leading roles, NCT taps into Music City’s pool of young up-and-coming performers — Rosemary Fossee, Kristin McCalley and Daniel Collins — with veteran players Aleta Myles, Maurice Ralston and Jamie Farmer enacting the play’s numerous other characters. Several scenes are set in outer space, so it should be interesting to see Patricia Taber’s costumes, Colin Peterson’s rear-screen projections and sound design, and Scott Leathers’ lighting.
