Sponsor a Workshop Child


Dear Friends of NCT,

Many of you as parents, teachers and creatives have experienced the magic of National Children’s Theatre (NPO and PBO) over the years. NCT has provided engaging, educational entertainment for children both at our beautiful Parktown campus and at schools across Gauteng. We’ve touched the lives of children, families, schools and communities and are committed to continuing our vital work to use theatre arts to grow South Africa’s next generation of leaders.

More than 20,000 children annually see our productions and experience our workshop classes in drama, dance and music. Children who participate in our classes build self- esteem, confidence, a sense of identity and belonging. Children learn empathy and social skills through drama, they improve their physical fitness and reduce anxiety through dance and learning music heals and inspires.

But opportunities for transformative experiences for young South Africans, especially the disadvantaged, are thin on the ground. Many children who want to attend weekly workshop classes simply can’t afford it. We are inundated with requests from communities to accept children into NCT’s workshop programme, as a means to provide a safe, educational and creative space for children.

Please sponsor one child to attend workshop class at NCT for a year.

Your R6000 (tax deductible) for 1 child will deliver these benefits:

  • Attending at Saturday morning workshop classes weekly, during school terms, for one year
  • Training in music, vocals, dance and drama
  • Developing talent, confidence, voice, coordination, music and theatre skills
  • Learning from professional rehearsals and productions at NCT
  • Auditioning to perform in NCT’s productions
  • Interacting with students of all backgrounds
  • A chance at a better future 

The success of our Sponsor a Workshop Child Campaign depends on business and individuals who together with us, believe in the transformative power of theatre arts for children. All donations are tax deductible and a section 18A certificate will be issued to you.

Thank you for sponsoring and transforming one child forever!
