"...The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC) is a 313 seat theatre facility located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. It was built with the help of the publisher of the Globe and Mail newspaper whose fund raising efforts raised monies from varied sources across Canada. It is the only fully equipped live performance theatre in the NWT...."
It is physically and spiritually connected to Sir John Franklin High School. so the school's music and drama programs use NACC as their performance space and exchange the school's furnace heats NACC.
NACC creates and presents its own program of local, national and international performers every year and rents it's performance space to several Yellowknife based cultural groups so that they can have access to a professional venue for their performances.
You might find dance, plays, musical performances or an occasional film or film festival on offer at NACC. Cultural workshops are also a staple every year.
Whatever is on the playbill, you're sure of an evening of quality entertainment or artistic education.
