Very excited to start rehearsing our 5th NTC! 

Once again we will be joined by the Queen of NTC, the brilliant Grace B, who will be making her 5th appearance in a NTC play!!

Rehearsals start Tuesday 10th September at 7.30. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and be prepared to move….. Bring a bottle of water!

Look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.


Our first session took place 7 years ago. Since then, hundreds of students have passed through the doors of the old school hall. We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all our students, past & present, for making the work we do such a joy! Have a great time in class today, enjoy your cake, and here’s to the next 7 years!! 

One student who entered the hall on that first day, was the lovely Emily Anderson. Emily took part in The National Theatre Connections Festival, performing three times at The Lowry, and most recently at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield. She has made numerous cups of tea, cut dozens of birthday cakes, and achieved her LAMDA Gold Medal! 

For the last two years Emily has worked alongside Naomi helping the smooth running of the Saturday morning classes. Today is her last day with us………

From everyone at Marple Drama, we want to say a huge HUGE THANK YOU for all your help, support, commitment, dedication, and excellent tea making skills!

You will be missed Emily!!

We wish you every success!!



A lovely way to end our 2018/19 NTC experience…….

We once again recreate the ‘Last Supper’ at HOME, Manchester, before watching another version of ‘FLESH’, performed by Dalton Theatre Company, and then an excellent production of ‘Class’, by Imaginarium Young Actors……..

Here’s to NTC 2019/20!!
