DUCK FOR PRESIDENT: 26 February - 7 April 2019

Life on the farm is hard: too much work, not enough sleep, and no time for swimming. Who put Farmer Brown in charge, anyway? When the chores get out of control, it’s time for a charismatic young Duck to run for office. And once he’s running the farm, it’s only a few more steps before he’s running the whole country. With Cow and Hen’s help — and with Pig as his campaign manager — nothing can stand in Duck’s way!

CHARLOTTE'S WEB: 18 June - 21 July 2019
Based on the beloved children's novel by E.B. White,Charlotte's Web is the story of Wilbur the pig and his friendship with Fern Arable, the little girl who adopts him, and his barnyard friends but most importantly, Charlotte the spider. Wilbur, the story's main character, is born the runt of a litter of pigs and thought too weak to live until Fern takes pity on him. “A delightful production which expounds good old fashioned values such as true friendship and selflessness.”

A SHORT CUT - TO A SHORT LIFE: 04 February - 08 March 2019

The play highlights the dangers of young girls embracing the appealing option of getting out of poverty through becoming sexually involved with older men. At first glance it seems like innocent fun, and it might well be if they were consenting adults, but a closer look reveals the ugly truths. The show is touring to primary schools in Gauteng.

MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! April - May 2019

Set in 1985 South Africa, My Children! My Africa! explores the interaction and relationships between Thami, a gifted 17 year old black boy, his teacher and mentor of many years, Mr. M., and Isabel, a confident and enthusiastic white pupil who befriends the other two during an inter-school debate in the Location, a black ghetto at the edge of a small provincial town. A heartbreaking powerful must see play for every learner.

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!
