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

'Red Riding Hood and Other Stories'

by our very own Louis Roberts.

Little Red Riding Hood

NTC’s own special adaptation is a new combination of well loved, familiar and unfamiliar fairy tales: a collection of funny and scary stories including Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf and The Fox, making ideal seasonal entertainment for family audiences. With lots of music, chilling moments and plenty of laughs - this is imaginative storytelling at its best.

Venue details now available see SHOWs. See you there!
