Description

Company description
Entertaining Education Hopscotch Theatre Company have been creating high quality, hugely hilarious, cross curricular linked performances and drama workshops for the young people of Scotland for the last 25 years. Our aim is to encourage and nurture an appreciation of Scottish culture and the performing arts from an early age. From our base in Sunny Govan, Glasgow, we produce three full scale touring productions per year in Spring, Autumn and Winter which tour the length and breadth of Scotland. From the Borders to Thurso, you’ll see our bright yellow Hopscotch van on its merry way, reaching around 30, 000 young people per tour.
Now, that’s around 90, 000 young Scots per year and since their formation in 1988, that’s what, 90, 000 times.... Well, safe to say, it’s kagillions! We often hear from the educators, artists, actors, writers and wealth of Scottish based talent they work with how fondly they remember Hopscotch coming into their primary school; commenting on what a vivid and exciting learning experience it was! Even the postie, as he drops off all the fan mail, has fond memories of Hopscotch during his school days! We love to know that we have made such an impression on the community in Scotland­ - and we want to continue! Here at Hopscotch we continually assess each performance and drama workshop - asking teachers for their feedback so performances are as entertaining and effective as possible. Utilising our bank of educational consultants we ensure that all scripts tie in with Experiences and Outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence and contribute to the school curriculum as well as being a wonderful whole school experience.
Since last year, we have increased our selection of drama workshops - covering topics such as Fair Trade, Anti Bullying, Glocal Citizenship & Robert Burns. In August 2012 Hopscotch was awarded funding from Creative Scotland to produce ‘Pink! the Musical’ which is aimed at 4 to 7 year old pupils, encouraging tolerance and acceptance. Ho…
