Are NICs payable?

A client of mine is producing a West End Musical.  Am I correct in thinking that any payment to any of the stage crew, lighting man, director etc is exempt from Class 1 NIC?

The payment to any actor operating through a Ltd company, so long as there is a contract in place between the two Ltd companies and the payment is made to the Ltd company is also exempt?

The payments to actors who are only registered as self employed have to have NI deducted and employer's NI is also payable?

Does my client have to register as an employer?

Any thing else I should know?
