Kids birthday parties

Celebrate your birthday on a very "Special Birthday Party Journey". Carloads of children, family and friends arrive at the theatre. They meet the birthday girl or boy in the "Birthday Party Room". There is jostling and laughter as excitement and anticipation of seeing the "Special Party Theatre Production" mounts.

Birthday party tickets are handed to each party guest and then they proceed to the theatre for the performance.
Music... The lights go down... Silence.

The audience is close to the action and is exhilarated watching the plays. NCT finds subjects and stories that matter to young people and adults and brings them to life in a relevant exciting way, creating an unforgettable theatrical and learning experience.

As a special "Birthday Treat", the birthday child is invited on the stage and receives a birthday gift, photo of cast while the audience sing "Happy Birthday".

Birthday parties are arranged directly with the Theatre Management on 011 484 1584/5.

The wizard of Oz was fantastic! The characters looked every bit like their parts, especially the wicked witch! A great show that my kids thoroughly enjoyed.

Not only did we enjoy an amazing girls night out but we came home with a few valuable lessons too. Freckleface Strawberry kept my daughter in awe, as she too learnt that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Cosy and intimate, this hilarious musical makes for great entertainment this winter. Definitely recommended by the Jozikids team. A must-see for all the teens and tweens.

We really enjoyed the Goggas show and I will definitely recommend it. It was very well presented and the actors were brilliant. Well done to the team on a superb performance.

Annie Jr is a must-see. I was close to tears a few times, and laughed out loud even more often. The songs have been playing in my head ever since seeing it last week. My daughters (7 and 10) loved it.

I took my boys (6 and 4) to watch Aladdin and they absolutely loved it! The actors were brilliant, they especially liked the genie. Well done to the cast and the theatre for a lovely, intimate venue.
