Get Involved

Theatre has the power to transform lives. We believe that no matter what your age or ability there should be no limit to creative potential. The National Theatre of Scotland offers a range of opportunities to encourage active involvement in theatre-making across Scotland and the rest of the world. We offer a broad range of workshops and programmes alongside our touring productions which will develop and become available throughout the year.

Join our community cast

We are hosting a series of workshops looking for a community cast to perform and tell the work stories of the people of North Lanarkshire in our final SHIFT events in March 2018.

How to Act Student Symposium

To support the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of How to Act, we will be hosting a number of unique symposium events for students in higher and further education across the country.

These exciting events will invite students to explore how the play was made through a variety of workshops. Graham Eatough and specialist practitioners from the National Theatre of Scotland will lead workshops in playwriting, dramaturgy and the devising process.
