Theatre in Schools Scotland is managed by Imaginate and the National Theatre of Scotland to develop the provision of theatre and dance performances available for schools to host for their pupils. 

Our productions are designed specifically with schools in mind, suitable for the buildings and age appropriate for pupils. The programme features productions from Scottish performing companies specialising in theatre and dance for children and young people. We arrange all practicalities to ensure maximum enjoyment and learning from the visit, with minimum disruption to the school day. 
This year we are presenting productions suitable for classes across Nursery to P7. The programme is year-round and available throughout Scotland.
