Charlotte’s Web tells the story of how Fern - a young girl who loves animals and speaks to them - with the help of a beautiful spider named Charlotte A. Cavatica, rescues an irresistible little pig from her father’s axe, the usual fate of a runt. She names him Wilbur. At Zuckerman’s Farm, Wilbur also makes other friends, including Gossip Goose and Gloomy Sheep and, of course, the spider: Charlotte.

This popular tale takes audiences to Zuckerman’s Farm, where Wilbur finds out he is on course to meet the butcher and land up at the dinner table – as the main course, not the guest. The remarkable and creative spider, Charlotte, and her farmyard friends rescue Wilbur and the whole town begins talking. ‘Some pig’ indeed! Tell a friend.

To celebrate 100 years of Madiba, National Children’s Theatre brings to the stage an original production of one of Chris van Wyk's last stories, Mr Hare Meets Mr Mandela.

Mr Hare Meets Mr Mandela is a tale about bravery and persistence, as well as the significance of being literate, something dear to late uTata's heart.

Warm your hearts this winter with the not-often-heard tale of how Mr Hare takes on the biggest lostand-found adventure. Mr Hare finds a R200 note - and of course it belongs to Mr Mandela because it has his face on it or so illiterate Mr Hare thinks! So Mr Hare sets off to return it to its rightful owner!

With a brand new script, joyful music, characters a plenty, as well as stunning shadow puppetry, the show promises to be fun for the whole family, as well as teaching children the many wonders of stories, and being able to read them. The moral of the story is that if we do not learn from our experiences, we are bound to repeat them - and poor Mr Hare believes it is fine to be illiterate!

National Children’s Theatre offers a new after school programme. The class meets once a week - the perfect solution for busy Gauteng children. We keep our class sizes small so children get the personal attention and non-competitive environment they need to do their best. Our incredible teaching staff are also professional actors and musicians, able to create a fun environment with a serious edge.

This class emphasizes the creativity, enjoyment, and personal growth of each child. Through drama games, movement, music, and vocal exercises, children explore self-expression and gain confidence and self-esteem. It has been proved that children who attend this type of class gain a distinct advantage that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives, whether they advance in the acting profession or into other walks of life.
