In recent arts news, the National Theatre for Children is closing after a glorious 25 years of enthralling tamariki and ākonga around Aotearoa. The work of the theatre has brought many children their first encounter with the magic of live  performance. Those that made the decision say they celebrate its legacy of supporting the creation and delivery of high-quality live theatre designed for children. However, the programme has been heavily subsidised for many years to make theatre accessible, and this model is no longer sustainable in the post-pandemic environment. To hear about the closure and what it may mean for tamariki and theatre, Frances spoke with Tim Bray, Artistic Director of Tim Bray Theatre Company and Trustee of Performing Arts and Young People Aotearoa.
