Our final session of weekly classes for youth and adults is just around the corner! With a mix of virtual and in person class options, we hope you can join us for one of these upcoming classes.

We continue to provide a collaborative, supportive learning environment in our virtual classes, and we strive to do the same as we resume in person learning experiences for the first time since the pandemic started. Our in person class procedures are now detailed for you on our website.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about our safety protocols at

Read on to learn more about what’s coming up this spring!

Classes for Youth

Our class schedule for the session continues virtual learning during the week with in person classes for youth on Saturdays. We invite you to join us for weekly creativity and collaboration in the way that works best for you! Registration is open for weekly classes this spring for age 4 through grade 8, including:

Our virtual classrooms will stretch their creativity in Scriptworks (Gr 3-5), Drama Quest (Gr 1-3) and Intro to Stage Makeup (Gr 6-8)!

Registration for in person classes will close March 6 to give us time to prepare clear communications and prep for your return to Raleigh Little Theatre. If you are interested in the following classes, make sure to register by that March 6 deadline!

  • Story Drama (PK-K): Courageous Characters
  • Creative Drama (Gr 1-2): We Are Artists
  • Actor’s Toolbox (Gr 3-5)
  • Middle School Ensemble: Audition Techniques (Gr 6-8)

Youth in elementary grades can also spend spring break with Raleigh Little Theatre with half day in person camps and virtual classes the week of March 29-April 2. 

All youth classes are open to all experience levels and abilities. A reminder that we also offer scholarship opportunities if cost is a barrier for you or someone you know. View our full class catalog.

Teens on Stage and Teens Backstage

We have also recently announced our plans for the summer 2021 Teens on Stage and Teens Backstage program! We will be creating an outdoor, site specific production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, and we are looking to cast between 12-16 actors and find 4-6 technical theatre students to create this unique production. All prospective participants must turn 14 prior to June 19, the program start date, to be eligible for this year’s program.

Auditions for Teens on Stage will be done via video submission - due March 5! Callbacks will be held in person at RLT on March 20. Read more about Teens on Stage auditions.

Interviews for Teens Backstage will be held in person at RLT on March 27- click here to read more about how to sign up and fill out the application form.

All the detailed program information is on our website, but let us know if you have any questions!

Classes for Adults

Adult classes will also resume in person, while continuing virtual learning opportunities throughout the spring. Our spring line up for adults includes:

  • Beginning Actor’s Studio In Person at RLT with Jess Barbour - This class is designed for adults who want to give acting a try, or revisit the basics in order to improve their technique!
  • FUNdamentals of Improv In Person at RLT with Amy Pridgen - Need more creativity, spontaneity, laughter and fun in your life? Then it’s time to get out of your head and join this basic improv class!
  • Virtual Readers Theatre Scene Study (age 55+) with Kathleen Rudolph - Readers Theatre is a style of theatre in which actors do not need to memorize their lines in order to tell a story. In this virtual class, students will explore scene work, creating and developing characters, and learning how to successfully collaborate with a scene partner.

As always, feel free to contact us at with any questions about choosing a class or what to expect.
