The NCT Drama School


NCT has a variety of fun drama workshops that will enhance your group's trip to the theatre. With or without enjoying a performance, we can tailor and design a workshop to fit the needs of your group. Costs for workshops will vary based on content and staffing needs.

Contact Catherine Birdsong at 252-4662 to book your workshop today!

Number of Participants:

We require a minimum of 8 participants per workshop, and limit enrollment to 50 participants per workshop at NCT. For schools, NCT Teaching Artists can conduct an in-class workshop within a couple weeks of your field trip to the theatre.  For Scout Workshops, we may book multiple Troops per workshop, and reserve the right to cancel if a workshop does not meet enrollment requirements.

NCT Scout Workshops

Bring your Troop for a fun-filled day at NCT! Scout workshops include admission to the show, a theatre workshop with NCT's professional teaching artists, and an NCT fun patch!

  • Girl Scouts

    • The Play's the Thing workshop (workshop descriptions below) fulfills all requirements for Brownie Try-Its 'People Are Talking' and 'Let's Pretend,' Junior Badges 'Theatre.'

  • Boy Scouts

    • We look forward to hosting a workshop for your Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs and Webelos to meet the required and elective adventures.

About the Workshops:

The Play's the Thing is our foundation Scout workshop. Scouts will engage in acting techniques through games and exercises that challenge them to use their bodies, voices, and imaginations to express character and explore storytelling. Workshops are designed to fit the age level of participants, and so length and price vary by age group.

Pricing for a one-hour workshop (recommended for Daisies) is $25 per Scout and $15 per adult. Pricing for a two-hour workshop is $30 per Scout and $15 per adult. All workshops include admission to the show and an NCT fun patch.
