National Theatre for Children

Te Whare Tapere ā-Motu mō n Tamariki 

Every young New Zealander should have the opportunity to experience the best performance art that speaks of Aotearoa and their place in the world.
Capital E’s National Theatre for Children engages with children and young people as creative producers for theatre performances that tour Aotearoa. 

The Lost Letter Office

The Lost Letter Office is a love letter to handwritten letters. Using magic, movement, music and clown performance, it explores how these endangered paper creations can deliver powerful gifts of love.
