National Theatre For Children:
The Minneapolis-based theatre company regularly tours U.S. schools offering sketch comedy, educational performances for children that have been empirically proven to produce increased awareness and knowledge about the subject area in the students who attend performances.
The 40-minute Pennies to Paychecks performance uses suggestions from the students to create one-of-a-kind sketches filled with colorful characters and comedic situations. The sketches include a babysitter finding out about tax deductions on their paycheck, a game show that ties together the concepts of risk and investing, a student deciding whether to purchase a laptop using a debit or credit card, and living a “day in the life” of a student to discover how everyday choices can impact finances.

In 1978, NTC dedicated itself to delivering entertaining and highly educational programs to positively motivate families, students and educators. We inspire young people – and their families – to explore important and timely curricular subjects including: wise energy use, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), financial literacy, health and nutrition and environmental literacy, among others. Originally focused on delivering its programs via live theatre, NTC is now an award-winning educational content provider whose repertoire includes print and digital curriculum, professional development, extracurricular events and volunteers-in-the-schools. We have developed the art of teaching through educational story-telling into a science of its own, and are currently the largest in-school touring educational production company in the world. www.ntccorporate.com
