As Scotland’s Youth Theatre development organisation, we aim to help grow audiences and spread the word about the brilliant work taking place all across Scotland. On this page you will find a list of upcoming performances by young artists or for young audiences. Including work by YTAS members and other companies we think might be of interest.

If you would like to send details of an upcoming performance by your company please submit your event to YTAS using the online Submit Event form.

Ten new productions from some of the biggest global names in theatre-making and a host of our best Scottish talent will take place in ten locations across the untry in September and October.

 The Arrival, Solar Bear

The Arrival is a funny, wildly imaginative and welcoming show,inspired by the award-winning graphic novel by Shaun Tan.

A man starts life in a bewildering new city. He doesn’t speak the language; he can’t read the maps or signs. He is helped along the way by sympathetic strangers, each with their own story: stories of survival and hope.

The play embraces visual and physical storytelling, music and puppetry, with some scenes in British Sign Language (BSL) and English.

All we ask you to bring is your imagination!
