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. These are selected by panel each June for the next academic year (ie June 2021 for programming Sept 2022 - March 2023). The panel is formed by representatives of the artistic teams at Imaginate and National Theatre of Scotland.

Commissioned productions 

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, primary or early secondary age groups. 

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


Associated Productions

These productions are also selected from applications but are funded by the producing companies and presented under the banner of Theatre in Schools Scotland. This collaboration provides a wider programme offer to Scotland's schools whilst supporting companies and creators to develop productions suitable for schools. Tours are promoted and bookings adminstrated by Theatre in Schools Scotland and performing companies receive a fee per performance. 


We are very keen to work with as varied a group of artists as possible, including people with disability, people of colour and from minority ethnic communities, and all those who feel their voices and stories are not commonly represented.

We are currently particularly interested in those suitable for Primary 2-5 (age 6-9).

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