Northumberland Theatre Company



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

My children and I had a fantastic afternoon of entertainment at Shap thanks to you. Well done for giving such an energetic and engaging performance. I will be spreading the word about your work and look forward to you visiting the area again.

All 3 girls I brought to the performance of Red Riding Hood at Shap this afternoon loved the show and continued telling stories all the way home. Thank you.
