For two decades, NCTC's highly successful YouthAware Educational Theatre program has produced plays for young people that entertain, illuminate social issues, inspire and encourage healthier life choices.
- YouthAware plays are offered at NCTC and on tour to northern and central California schools and communities throughout the school year.
- Touring programs may be performed up to two times a day at your school site in a theatre, cafeteria, gymnasium, or other multi-purpose room. We travel with our own set and sound equipment and no special lighting is required.
- All plays feature professional, young actor/educators who are cast with the diverse Bay Area audiences in mind.
- All programs also feature post-performance discussions with the cast and handouts are provided for teachers to continue discussion in the classroom.
