Bring NCTC to your school or community arts program today! Schools can host an after school drama workshop, invite a teaching artist into the classroom, or have a troupe of touring actors perform in a YouthAware assembly. NCTC has been working with the San Francisco Unified School District, as well as many private schools, for more than 35 years. Let us help your students explore their creativity through drama.
