About NTC

We believe in the power of live educational theatre. Why? Since 1978, The National Theatre for Children has delivered free programs to schools across the country. Our educational performances teach, entertain and inspire future generations to make our world a better place – and they have worked! Since our first tour, more than 30 million students have attended our livestream and in-school shows and learned how to make a positive difference in their lives and communities.

Over the years, we have expanded our offerings to include not only live performances but other resources such as digital games and activities, educational graphic novels, student playbooks and teacher guides, the Power Play classroom game and more. Whether it’s superheroes defeating energy-wasting villains or comedy sketches exploring the importance of financial literacy, we present a memorable program that’s not only fun for your students, but also aligns with state educational standards and fits in easily with preexisting class curriculum.
