Adult Education Program

Raleigh Little Theatre is pleased to present adult acting classes designed to develop theatrical skills featured in our season productions to prepare participants for the stage in a safe and nurturing environment. The adult classes are all taught by local theatre professionals with a wealth of experience in the field.

We believe that theatre arts training extends well beyond the stage as well by promoting self- esteem, building confidence, stimulating creativity, sharpening communication skills and fostering an appreciation of teamwork. It’s also a lot of fun!
