Theatre in Schools Scotland
05/02/2018 - 14/12/2018
Theatre in Schools Scotland, the pilot project bringing world-class theatre and dance to Scotland’s schools, continues to develop and grow. The project has been developed by Imaginate and the National Theatre of Scotland in partnership with Catherine Wheels, Starcatchers and Visible Fictions creating opportunities for schools to host performances in school halls and local communities.
In 2017 the project has involved children from 153 schools in more than half of Scotland’s local authority areas from the Isle of Gigha to Orkney. In 2018, in the final year of the pilot, Theatre in Schools Scotland will be expanding further with more productions suitable for nurseries, primary and secondary schools touring from February 2018 to March 2019.
The current spring 2018 programme includes How To Fix a Broken Wing, a new play from Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, created by Peter Collins and written by Lewis Hetherington and Theatre in Schools Scotland’s first production for nurseries, The Attic presented by Starcatchers and Hazel Darwin-Clements. Theatre in Schools Scotland’s full 2018 programme has now been announced and full details are available at the link below with shows available to book.
Theatre in Schools Scotland continues to be supported by regional partners, schools and local authorities. The programme is sponsored by the Scottish Salmon Company and supported by Culture and Business Fund Scotland.
