Mission & Guiding Principles
NTC is the educational resource for schools and our sponsors and clients are companies who want to be associated with teaching important societal issues to 6–18-year-old students, their parents and educators. In turn, all of NTC’s productions are offered free to schools across the United States. NTC routinely reaches over almost a million children in thousands of schools throughout any given year, making us the largest national touring children’s theatre in the country.
Our company of knowledgeable, aware, fun and creative staff write all scripts and programs, film all videos, process all production elements and develop all educational materials in house at our primary office in Minneapolis, MN. Our programs focus on important societal issues including health, safety, life skills and the environment, and they are custom designed to meet the needs of our individual clients.
Since NTC is the educational resource for schools and because educators trust us to connect with students through our unique form of live theatre, we are committed and dedicated to communicating these important life lessons to children.
NTC is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). As part of our mission to create a positive impact in the communities we engage, NTC is committed to empowering diverse voices and representations, especially for those who have been historically marginalized. By centering equity and inclusion, we strive to envision a brighter future.
Here at NTC, we believe in:
Doing things beneficial to all concerned
Telling the truth
Doing top quality work
Nurturing long term relationships
