NTC Studios, a combined entity of The National Theatre for Children, Inc. (NTC) and Livestream Learning Studio (Studio), is seeking $10 million to accelerate its expansion into the K-12 edtech subscription marketplace.

Since 1978, NTC has performed in over 60,000 schools to 25 million students in the US, Australia, and New Zealand

Stable and profitable for 45 years – develops interactive multi-media content and curricular support materials in a variety of subjects delivered live in K-12 schools through theatrical all-school assemblies

Works with large corporate, non-profit and government agencies to teach important societal issues to students, their parents and educators

Studio is a new product line – edtech subscription service for grades K-12 with significant upside opportunities for US schools and the global education market

18 months developing and testing this proprietary platform and portal to deliver live interactive multi-media content and curricular support materials in a variety of subjects



Since 2020, the global pandemic has further exacerbated three of the largest concerns among K-12 districts: learning loss, teacher retention and school culture

The K-12 marketplace is enormous with over 130,000 schools in the US alone

Edtech is now estimated at $127 billion in the US and growing by 17% annually

Technology is required as a learning resource, not just a learning tool

NTC Studios’ annual school subscription model is built to be high-margin, high-growth and high-retention in the domestic and global edtech market



Drama-based pedagogy to teach, entertain and inspire

Poised to fundamentally disrupt the edtech industry by transforming the way we teach every day in every classroom

Proprietary portal and IP catalogue to accelerate learning and provide teachers and students the tools they need to succeed
