Primary 1 - 7: Skint Knees

The Skint Knees programme is delivered weekly in Glasgow at Scottish Youth Theatre and at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh. Due to popular demand we are able to bring this programme to your school. Both workshops offer Scottish Youth Theatre's house style of highly interactive, exciting, young person centred theatre activities.

Encouraging motivation for learning, these workshops instil openness to new thinking and ideas by promoting independent thinking. All participants will develop and communicate their own beliefs and views of the world; work in partnership and teams; develop their own ideas; and solve problems creatively.


Skint Knees - Storytelling

Be inspired by a box of props and costumes selected from Scottish Youth Theatre's Wardrobe Department. Create characters. Devise situations. Piece them together. Muddle them up. Anything is possible, there is no right or wrong. This is a fast paced and energetic workshop that celebrates the uniqueness of each young person’s imagination.
