Bringing powerful learning experiences to children!
Come and join National Children’s Theatre (NCT) workshops for ages 7 to 17, classes are held every Saturday morning during the school term. These classes are open to all children who are motivated to learn, grow, and explore the world of theatre and the expressive arts. The program is ongoing, with year-round training designed to give children opportunities and experiences that help build their self-confidence and self-esteem, and teaches them about live theatre, both on stage and behind the scenes, and prepares them to better face the challenges of the adult world ahead.
