Hopscotch Theatre Company are proud to celebrate over 30 years of producing new work for children’s theatre.
The company inspires and enriches the minds of young audiences through its original theatre and storytelling projects. As a company, we are dedicated to producing the highest quality theatre and championing the practice of new writing for non-traditional spaces.
To do this we create a range of far reaching and impactful performances and projects for young audiences. These activities take place in schools and communities across Scotland throughout the year. We want our work to celebrate the diverse society that we live in and create a strong sense of community and belonging through all strands of our activities.
We believe that theatre for young audiences should be imbued with emotion, memory, hope and heritage. It should be participatory, honest and inclusive. Speak with our audiences, not at them, and address stories that matter to the young people of Scotland today.
“As usual, an excellent performance: clear and concise which held everyones attention including the Head Teacher's in ‘rapture’! Many thanks to the very talented performers!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed Hopscotch productions when I was a child and now that I’m a teacher, the enjoyment factor remains the same! Colourful and animated performances make Hopscotch Theatre Company the best!”
"Bold, yet contrasting costumes and scenery captured everyones attention. Educational messages were delivered in a clear, concise, entertaining and humorous style that captured the audience’s attention of the children young and old.”
“Great storyline, easy to follow and tunes which children connected with. The scenery, songs and effects were a great way to effectively communicate the message that difference is interesting and it’s what in the inside that matters”
