Touring as part of Theatre in Schools Scotland

Interested in touring your production as part of Theatre in Schools Scotland?


Our year-round touring programme is curated by the artistic teams at Imaginate and National Theatre of Scotland and has two components: 

Commissioned productions 

These are selected by panel each June for the next academic year (ie June 2019 for programming Sept 2020 - March 2021). The panel is formed by representatives of the artistic teams at Imaginate and National Theatre of Scotland.

These productions are remounts of theatre or dance productions with proven record of success with schools audiences from Scottish companies. 

The current model is for the company to perform 5 days per week for around 8 weeks, to 1 school per day, performing 2 shows per day – other models may be considered.

Productions should be suitable for nursery and/or primary age groups. We are currently particularly interested in those suitable for Primary 2-5 (age 6-9).

Commissioned productions receive a fee to remount and tour the production which is then booked and partly managed by Theatre in Schools Scotland. 

Any company who is developing work for nurseries and schools, or wishing to highlight a production that could be considered for commission should email tiss@imaginate.org.uk for outline information. This can be done at any time throughout the year. 

Productions from Associated Companies

Productions from Associated Companies may also be included in the programme. These are productions for schools which are fully funded by the associate companies and presented under the banner of Theatre in Schools Scotland. The associated companies currently are the original partners on the pilot project: Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, Visible Fictions and Starcatchers. This collaboration provides a wider programme offer to Scotland's schools.
