This Easter holiday bring the family to a show that will inspire them long after the lights go up. for children, theatre expands imagination where they can gain skills, curiosity and creativity to understand society and even to change it
We’re big believers in taking science out of the laboratory and into exciting new spaces. Science in the Spotlight aims to bring together the wonder of theatre and the explosive world of science communication. Combining the best of science and theatre, Science in the Spotlight returns with an exciting show recommended for ages 5–8, Melody and Sam: Record Breakers. The show follows the journey of ambitious friends desperate to break a world record as they swim through challenges, over waves and underwater. Melody and Sam: Record Breakers is a story of determination that will inspire all ages.
Families looking for a day at the theatre will also enjoy a range of shows we have on offer at various venues across Edinburgh. Fix the future in the virtual reality world of The Space in FutureQuest, experience a multi-sensory polar adventure, come face to face to the science of circus with StrongWomen Science, be shocked by the tales of Dr Megaphone goes Zap, or experience bangs, colours, flames and foam in The Chemistry Show
