The National Performing Arts Troupe performs works around legends, biographies, national events, awareness drama, comedy and traditional dance.

In 2005, a new concept was introduced into the operations of NPAT functions, due to the education system not accommodating many of PNG's citizens, the migration of many youths from rural to urban areas and the impact of globalization and popular culture on the deterioration of cultural beliefs and practices.

The NPAT has introduced practical skills based workshops combining them with performance based activities around culture. The program include theatre training, community Development Training, Self Reliance Training and the Bilasim Skin project.
