About Northwest Neighborhood Cultural Center (NWNCC)
Located in Northwest Portland, NWNCC has been the home of Northwest Children's Theater and School (NWCT) for 20 years. As managing tenants, NWCT currently shares the building with the community including Ovation Choirs, GNC Ministries Productions, Independence Network, and Portland Child Art Studio, all local non profits. By renting with NWNCC not only are you booking a Portland venue at an incredible price, your dollars are supporting a wonderful mission. Your rental dollars help support programing that brings theater and arts education and experiences to thousands of Portland kids every year. NWCT is not just about plays, or classes. It’s about the next generation of creative thinkers.
Create a completely unique birthday experience with a party room and your child’s favorite Northwest Children’s Theater show. In our 20th Anniversary Season, we will bring your child’s favorite characters to life in Roald Dahl’s The BFG, Peter Pan, Seussical, and Cinderella. At the top of the show, NWCT provides a special birthday announcement from the stage for your son or daughter. Just invite your guests, and we do the rest. No set up. No clean up. With NWCT birthday party packages, you walk in and enjoy. Learn more.
