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.
Please say you saw this on Jozikids.

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!
