We help educators inspire and prepare the next generation of scientists, artists, thinkers, pioneers and world citizens by providing free curriculum and performances to schools all over the country. The National Theatre for Children has been hard at work since 1978 bringing valuable messages on a wide range of topics to young people in a fun, memorable and enriching format — live theatre followed by digital and print classroom activities. Our shows, and all the features they include, are carefully crafted to use very little of your time while delivering as much information as possible. Because of support from our sponsors, these programs are free to your school.
The comic book was a real hit. My students made posters to hang on the school walls explaining how to save water.
This was a GREAT presentation … interesting, stimulating, educational, and fun! The children loved it as well as the teachers.
The program was excellent! The actors were not just entertaining but informative and aware of educational techniques for higher retention.
The live theatre production of "The Power of the Pyramid" made the content/area of instruction come alive for the students at Edgewood.
By giving NTC feedback on our programs, teachers improve our ability to meet the needs of their students and fellow educators—and we want to thank them. Each school year, NTC randomly selects a teacher who has completed an online evaluation of the program held at their school. Chelsea Williams, a second and third grade teacher, is this school year’s $250 prize winner in the NTC teacher evaluation contest!
On Oct. 15, The National Theatre for Children performed “Men In Plaid: The Kilowatt Connection” at Wellington Elementary School. The show was sponsored by Florida Power & Light. Grades K-5 enjoyed the live, interactive performance about energy. Main characters Moldy and Skuller travel the planet looking for wasted energy.
