Payroll for theatre company

A small theatre company is about to engage some actors for a performance. They have been told that they have to deduct NI even where actors are self-employed. Is this correct? Can anyone point me towards guidance?

Just did a quick google search and came across this link from 2005

It seems that entertainers are treated as employees for NIC purposes, if this is still relevant.
