About



NTC is a professional small-scale touring theatre company based at the Playhouse, Alnwick. We tour shows around the country, predominantly using village halls and community centres as venues in small rural towns and villages


"NTC's productions may be small-scale and done on a shoestring but they are backed by a team which can match anything done by much bigger, purpose built theatres and whose imagination and ability to weave a storytelling magic as they transform unpromising spaces into theatres for the night is second to none" - Lynn Gardner, The Guardian

Shakespeare Workshops


Posted by: Karen - Mon 30th Oct 2017 2:00pm
Following the success of last year's workshops, we are pleased to be able to offer Shakespeare Workshops again this year. Providing a fascinating insight into how Shakespeare wrote for actors by placing his staging instructions within the text: exploring the hidden meanings of his punctuation, cue lines and repetitions which enabled his contemporary actors to perform having only seen their ‘parts’ and their cues.

Workshops


‘In a world where students are often confined to desks during their study of drama in the English classroom, this approach offers a really valuable way for students to develop understanding of challenging texts through kinaesthetic approaches. Working together to select scenes to ensure that students’ active work will support their exam work when they return to the classroom. This approach can also support content revision in other key texts studied in English and Drama.’

For full details please see the attached document Workshops.

A Flying Visit!
