Welcome to the National Children’s Theatre, a non-profit organisation situated in Parktown focusing on development the art and theatre education for kids. We have been around for more than 25 years and have been steadily growing a reputation as one of Gauteng’s premier children’s theatres.
At The National Children’s theatre we have been extending our range of musicals and productions to include educational awareness programs such as shows about HIV/ AIDS, Bullying and Poverty. We have won numerous awards including 5 Naledi Awards and even an IPRA Golden Globe.
We offer a variety of school and public theatre shows for kids throughout the year so keep a look out on our website for the latest show times and schedules. Each show is approx. 1.5 hours in length (including interval) and all tickets need to be collected from the box office prior to the start of the event. We offer kids and parents a range of refreshments including tea, coffee, sandwiches, muffins and hot chocolate.
Additional Theatre Activities for Kids.
As a theatre focusing on the development of children, we provide a range of specialised kids activities. Our holiday programs are designed for kids to learn about theatre productions such as i.e. Peter Pan, where they learn to make pirates hats, sing songs, practice dance, rehearse scenes and more.
We also offer specialised kids workshops throughout the year where kids learn all about the world of theatre and the arts. The syllabus includes drams, music, dance and acting for film. This workshop is challenging but fun and an exceptional, once in a lifetime experience for kids. Please note these workshops are charged per term and enrolment prior to start of term is essential.
Lastly, we cater for some great kiddies birthday parties as well. Kids have access to our private Birthday Party room and watch amazing performances whilst having fun, laughing and singing. The children also have the opportunity to come up on stage after the show and have their photos taken with the cast. Please ensure to book your birthday party spot prior to the day so we can schedule the performances.
