Theatre in Schools Scotland

What We Do

A year long programme of shows touring to Scottish schools and nurseries.

Theatre in Schools Scotland, produced by Imaginate and the National Theatre of Scotland, continues to bring world-class theatre and dance for children and young people to Scotland’s schools and nurseries in 2020.

Theatre in Schools Scotland creates ongoing opportunities for schools to host performances in their school halls and local communities, offering a programme of productions created for younger audiences. Since launching three years ago, the project has successfully toured 14 productions to every local authority in Scotland, bringing 652 inspiring, powerful performances to 52,000 children and young people in schools from Shetland to the Scottish Borders.
