2019 we will celebrate the 10th year of the NCPA Summer Fiesta Festival! It is a community-minded festival designed to empower children by inspiring their imaginations and broadening their creative minds through exciting, interactive play. This festival continually strives to provide new and unique opportunities for the children to learn, play and be active. Local and national talent conducting the workshops at the festival show a wide array of different skills, from acting, public speaking, photography and writing.

Summer Fiesta aims to promote the benefits and values of the performing arts not just by showing children the entertainment but also by getting them involved at the lowest cost possible. Through all the workshops, Summer Fiesta allows children the opportunity to be creative, build knowledge and most importantly HAVE FUN!

We look forward to welcoming your children this year!



In 2010, the NCPA decided to initiate Summer Fiesta as a means to reach out to children and offer them an exciting way to spend their vacations. Over the years, children have enjoyed a series of plays and films picked for them, as well as a range of engaging and creativity enhancing workshops in theatre, dance, photography, puppetry, art, craft, creative writing, poetry, animation filmmaking and many others, conducted by masters in their fields. In 2019, children can choose from what is on offer at exciting workshops which will focus on diverse interests like puppetry, yoga, newspaper production, etc. ’S
