About



NTC is a professional small-scale touring theatre company based at the Dovecote Centre, Amble. 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
