Community Theatre

NCT takes our productions on tour to peri-urban and rural areas, where schools often don’t have halls or large classrooms to present plays, so we present in community centres, and give extra performances to local communities. Schools and communities value this especially when the productions are a for a set-work and are of current social value.

When: Call NCT to ask us to perform in your community
Venue: Schools
Ages: Children 10 and up
Cost: TBD for school packages
