We are looking for new scratch ideas for an evening at Summerhall to curate a programme of high quality, exciting and diverse ideas within theatre and dance for young audiences.  Our Scratch That! night is an excellent opportunity to try out ideas and receive feedback from peers and sector colleagues.

Scratch That! events are not suitable for finished pieces or workshops, it's about sharing a new idea to try out.  As it is mainly an industry event there are unlikely to be children/young people in attendance so keep that in mind for your applications.  There will be limited technical facilities and staff provided, each performance will have a 90 minute rehearsal in the space on the day. You can download the Anatomy Lecture Theatre tech spec here.

If you have an idea for a short performance piece for children aged between 0-18 years that you are looking to share and that can be performed in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre at Summerhall, then we want to hear from you.

Tickets for the event can be booked here.
