Northwest Children’s Theater


Is your kid the one running through the house or the grocery store reciting lines from plays and movies to anyone within earshot? Or maybe you have a little story teller who is looking to put their imaginative energy into something dramatically productive? In comes Northwest Children’s Theater & School, where it is open to all ages.  Being at NWCT will help your kiddos discover ways to interact and communicate through positive interactions, effective communication, physical development and artistic expressions.

Most notable at NWCT is the inclusive family atmosphere: many of the actors and teachers at the theater began there as young students and, having grown in their craft and expertise, are able to pass on that same love and support to a new generation of hopeful artists. In addition to their incredible summer camps, including scene study and fully costumed playlabs, the theater offers training in stage and house management, film education and video production, producing well-rounded artists with an understanding of the complete performance process.

Don’t miss NWCT’s upcoming 2016-17 Season of Plays:

Cat in the Hat: When the city is wet, and the sun is not sunny, join the Cat in the Hat, for good fun that is funny! Enter a world of magic and mischief as Conrad, Sally, and their very grumpy goldfish follow the Cat in the Hat on an adventure through the limitless imagination of Dr. Seuss! Sept. 24 – Oct. 23, 2016

Rock the Presidents: For hundreds of years, the United States Secret Service has lived up to the name, never divulging the spectacular events they witnessed during their time in the White House… until now. Join NWCT on a multi-media, rock n roll extravaganza through the untold history of the executive branch! Sept. 30 – Oct. 22

Wizard of Oz: There’s no place like Oz! This holiday season, travel over the rainbow to a magical kingdom filled with munchkins, flying monkeys, witches, and wizards. Join four unlikely friends as they set out to discover wisdom, bravery, courage, and the way home. Dec. 3 – Jan. 2

Sleeping Beauty: The Tale of Sleeping Beauty is one the world’s oldest and most revered fairy tales… and it has just been hijacked by a company of crazy bird puppets. Making their NWCT Mainstage debut, these feathered friends will stop at nothing in their quest to seize the spotlight and re-write history. Jan. 28 – Feb. 26, 2017

Robin Hood: Get ready for justice, Sherwood Forest-style! Adventure awaits as Robin, Marion, and company return to cross swords and match wits with the nefarious Sherriff of Nottingham and the evil Prince John in this hilarious, heist-filled, original adaptation! April 22 – May 21, 2017
