Something for everyone.
Our theatre is known for tackling huge productions with large casts, sets, and orchestrations. Now with the completion of our brand new, state-of-the-art, smaller theatre (the "black box"), we'll be able to explore a whole new realm of theatrical possibility.
Each year, NWT welcomes hundreds of first-timers to see and participate in productions. With Pay What You Can tickets available for every night of a show, NWT is taking accessibility to the next level.
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged NWT to consider new ways of producing shows for our 2020/21 season. To remain as flexibile as possible, we will be announcing shows on a rolling basis. When necessary, we will be exclusively streaming productions, so you can view from the comfort of your couch! Information on streaming shows can be found in a show's individual landing page.
Donations of all sizes create artistic opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults each year.
