THE REVEALERS: 2 March - 15 April 2020
The Revealers is a realistic story that is not judgmental or preachy. It has a powerful impact on raising awareness and changing the culture in schools. It will help those who are being bullied to acquire the knowledge, courage and skills to STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT. And at the same time it will help bullies recognize the harm they are doing to others – and themselves. It will also help bystanders to recognize that observing bullying in action is not acceptable, they need to be not BYSTANDERS, but UPSTANDERS!
MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! 1 April - 2 May 2020

The two youngsters strike up a gently competitive friendship and are enrolled to enter an English literature school quiz,and as the drilling for the competition advances, tension mounts.

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.

My kids and I watched the production of Duck for President and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was humorous and fun and taught the kids a bit about the importance of voting in a democracy. Definitely worth the watch!
