About us

our background

N-Act is a not-for-profit touring theatre company who specialise in delivering interactive performances to educational establishments, colleges and the wider community.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director and founder Dr Sharon Williams, the company’s motivation is to use the power of interactive theatre to entertain, to ignite curiosity, provoke thought, and to educate young people to enable them to make informed choices.

Through an interactive approach, the audiences have a greater emotional engagement with the topics and empathy with the characters. All performances have had a notable impact on the audiences, both in terms of the theatrical experience and a continuing dialogue with the audiences.

The N-Act team comprises professional actors with extensive experience of TV, film, theatre, script writing and backstage production with many successful workshops and performances in the wider community.

HEAR FROM SOME of
Our audiences 

Sharon and the wonderfully creative N-Act team explore some tough topics that empower children to help themselves stay mentally well and physically safe.  I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

JANE BANKS DEPUTY HEAD

THORPE HALL SCHOOL ESSEX

An absolutely brilliant play which was so relevant. As I said to you, youngsters aren’t going to listen to teachers and politicians but they may listen to organisations such as yourselves.
