Learning Resources

We passionately believe that, by attending live performing arts, schools can help meet the aspirations of the Curriculum for Excellence. Theatre and dance play a vital role in meeting children’s cultural, social and developmental needs. Engaging with quality performances can have a powerful and meaningful impact on young people and provide lifelong benefits as well as an opportunity to discuss important issues in their lives and the lives of others.

But while schools can take children to the theatre, it is teachers who can truly engage children with theatre by ensuring that engagement doesn’t end when the production is over.

We have developed several resources to help school classes explore and enhance their experience.

An interactive online tool led by an animated theatre critic
