Limelight Players is a performing arts company for performers of all ages and skill levels to find ways to shine on the stage through private lessons, classes, camps, and theatrical productions.

We have partnered with Life Community Church to bring performing arts education to Nolensville, TN.

Limelight Players was founded in 2016 by Elaina McKnight Shaver as a fulfillment of a lifelong dream that became a defined purpose to help others find their light and let it shine.  

The term "Limelight" originally derives from the lime, or calcium oxide flare, first used in the early 19th Century, which gave off a brilliant white light primarily used for illuminating the chief actor and follow him about the stage -- hence the modern term "in the limelight".

Our goals

  • To provide Nolensville and the surrounding areas with a performing arts hub for private lessons, classes, camps, and theatrical productions. 
  • To provide a safe place for performers of all ages to explore their creativity through encouragement to increase skill and build confidence on the stage and beyond.

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
— Matthew 5:16
