Children and families

The Christmas Quangle Wangle had the children enthralled, captivated, amused (lots of laughter) and engaged.





Licketyspit is a specialist early years theatre company. Our work is child-centred and rights based. We produce theatre, immersive theatre and drama-led play experiences including early intervention programmes for 0-12’s in schools, community, arts and cultural spaces. We also specialise in inter-generational drama-led play with families, and training in leading inclusive drama-led play with children’s professionals. We work predominantly in areas facing the challenges associated with poverty and disadvantage.


Licketyspit is looking to increase our team of specialist actor-pedagogues for a range of freelance work next year in Glasgow and Edinburgh. We are interested in hearing from experienced actors with a strong interest in children and community engagement and from community artists with a strong interest in theatre and drama.


A real affinity with young children is essential as is a commitment to social justice and a belief in the power of the arts, specifically drama, to transform lives.


Licketyspit was founded in 2004 out of Scotland’s first specialist early years theatre project. The company has a unique depth of experience and knowledge in its field. A core team of three draws on a network of highly skilled and committed associate artists and practitioners.

FANTASTICOSICO! The whole show was fantastic... I know that all our friends' children would love this. Will definitely push your company to all we know with kids. We would love to see all of the other productions (and so would our kids!)Audience member. The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie, December 2013
