Backstage Tours

Go behind the scenes with a member of the Traverse team and get exclusive access to the  unseen areas of Scotland's new writing theatre. Our Backstage Tours cover the history of the Traverse as well as visits to our Green Room, Wardrobe, Dressing Rooms, Workshop and two theatre spaces, Traverse 1 and Traverse 2.

Tours are free of charge for educational groups and can accommodate up to 20 people. Tours must be arranged in advance and are subject to our production programme.

If you would like to book a Backstage Tour or find out more, please get in touch with Sunniva Ramsay, our Creative Producer, at

Work Experience and Placements for Colleges/Universities

Occasionally we are able to offer work experience and/or placements to college and university students. The availability of these placements are dependent on the needs of the organisation and as such we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all requests for work experience. 

Please have a look at our Vacancies page for information about upcoming opportunities or contact Sunniva Ramsay, our Creative Producer, at
