SOS supports National Children’s Theatre


The SOS, a charity by DWR Distribution, was pleased to bring a smile to the National Children’s Theatre with the donation of two Longman LED RGB Parcans to be used on the upcoming Roald Dahl’s The Witches, staged this Saturday, 13thOctober in Parktown.

National Children’s Theatre is the busiest and most successful children’s theatre in South Africa offering professional shows, workshops, holiday camps, life-skill and educational outreach programing, living by its motto, ‘Empowering children through theatre.”

“Being a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on funding from various companies, institutes and the public,” said Cindy Gordon from the theatre. “Our Lighting Designer, Jane Gosnell, urgently requested the Longman parcans for our upcoming production and we are grateful to the SOS for generously sponsoring the cost thereof.”

NCT was established in 1989 by Joyce Levinsohn, and over the past thirty years, has produced outstanding productions and programs.  Under the leadership of Moira Katz since 2011, NCT has won 4 Naledi Awards for best children’s theatre in South Africa and Moira has received the USIBA Creative and Cultural Industries award from minister Nathi Mthethwa for taking theatre to children in rural areas.

If you can’t take the children to see The Witches, be sure to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which will run from 28thOctober to 22ndDecember.
