Theatre in Schools Scotland



Due to COVID-19, Scottish Government guidelines and our commitment to safeguarding audiences and those we work with, it is with great sadness that we announce current productions as part of Theatre in Schools Scotland will no longer be going ahead as planned.

We would like to thank our partners, venues, funders, supporters and audiences for their continued generous support.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling at this difficult time.

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.

From 2016 – 2019 Theatre in Schools Scotland toured 14 shows, bringing 652 performances to 52,754 children in schools from Shetland to Stranraer, reaching 19% of all Scottish primary schools.

The 2020 Theatre in Schools Scotland year-round programme includes: Lifeboat presented by Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, Cloud Man presented by Ailie Cohen Puppet Maker, Chalk About presented by Curious Seed and Potato Needs a Bath presented by Shona Reppe.

Full programme and project details to be announced early 2020.
