Beyond the Stage Door Field Trips

Raleigh Little Theatre’s award winning education program is proud to offer this exciting drama based field trip. The two hour field trip includes a one-hour workshop and a one-hour backstage tour.

Theatre Workshop (one hour)

Choose one of these workshop options:

  • Stories Alive! Workshop (for grades k-5)

    In this one hour workshop, students will participate in theatre exercises designed to sharpen skills every actor needs including the importance of listening, following directions, supporting others and focusing. Fun theatre exercises help to loosen the body and tighten the brain. Movement exercises help young actors discover how to communicate with their bodies. Finally, the class will bring a story to life using the skills they have learned.

  • Act It Workshop (for grades 6-8)

    Students will learn the basics of effective communication through physical and vocal expression. Fun theatre games help to reinforce the value of focus and the importance of teamwork.

Lunch option

Between the workshop and the theatre tour, students may choose to take a half hour lunch break. The group supplies the lunches.

Backstage Tour (one hour)

Students will get a rare look at the world the audience doesn’t see including the costume shop, dressing rooms, backstage and the scene shop. Students will also get an actor’s view of our stages.

Cost for a two-hour field trip:

  • For 10-14 students: $145.00
  • For 15-30 students: $160.00

If number exceeds 30, we recommend that students be placed in more than one workshop grouping. RLT can accommodate up to 60 children per Field Trip. In the first hour, one group tours while the other attends the Stories Alive Workshop. In the second hour the groups switch.

Dress for Drama! Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothing which allows for freedom of movement and closed toe shoes (like sneakers)

The benefits of theatre classes

Studies conclude that theatre classes help build confidence, enhance reading comprehension, promote self-esteem, develop strong social and communication skills, expand self-awareness, encourage respect for self and others, foster an appreciation of team work and improve academic achievement.
