National Theatre Connections News

Congratulations to our wonderful cast of ‘HOOD’ last week , and a huge thank you to all that came and supported, we are truly blessed to have such a talented group of young professionals.

This was a message from a audience member and the reasons why we continue to strive to be better and more creative each year.

Dear Matt & Scott,
Just to add my congratulations.
I think the company did an extremely impressive job with the show, and I was engaged and interested throughout in both the story, the situation and their performances.
The way they spoke about the journey they had gone on afterwards, to me, represented the very best of what youth theatre can and should be about, and it is a credit to you all that they have had such a rich experience putting on this play.

If you missed our home performance you can catch us at The North Wall , Oxford on Sunday 3rd May 2015 at 7pm.
