June 10-19 — Final performances!

As You Like It

July 23 - 31, 2021

RLT’s virtual thriller “A Number” opens Friday!

Plus summer camp, Snow White in the amphitheatre, and more!

A Number streams this weekend

How would you react to finding out you weren’t the only you? Caryl Churchill’s A Number dives into the topic of human cloning as it throws you into the middle of a complicated relationship between a father and his sons. A Number was recorded live on stage at RLT and will be available to stream on-demand March 5-13

Patrick Torres (Director) and David Henderson (“Salter”) recently chatted with Lauren Van Hemert of RDU on Stage to discuss the complexities of the show. Watch that interview here! To learn even more about A Number, tune in to WHUP’s Lights Up tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5:20pm to hear Patrick and Jesse Gephart (“B1, B2, and Michael Black”) chat with Wayne Leonard about the virtual production.

In “normal times,” we would definitely host a post-show discussion at the theatre, as this play has a lot to unpack! To create that space for questions and conversations, we will be hosting a live talkback on Monday, March 8, at 5:00pm on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. This conversation is intended to be for both people who have already streamed the show but also for those who want to learn a little more before diving in! We hope you’ll join us. 

To get a feel for our production of A Number, check out this teaser trailer by Geekorman Media:

Raleigh Little Theatre’s Virtual Season is presented by PNC Bank, and A Number is supported by Morningstar Law Group.

Snow White opens next weekend

Spring is right around the corner, and a fairytale in the Stephenson Amphitheatre seems like the perfect way to celebrate! Bring the kids to this family-friendly adaptation of Snow White, where only two actors bring all the characters to life. Read more about the fun-filled show, which runs March 13-21, in this WRAL Go Ask Mom article and over at Carolina Parent!

Due to the recent easing of state restrictions, we have just opened up more tickets per show. A maximum of 200 tickets will now be sold to each performance (an increase from 100), which is still only a fraction of the amphitheatre’s 2,000-person capacity. This ensures plenty of space for families to safely spread out while enjoying the show. Learn more about safety procedures and our mask policy on the show page on our website

All performances of Snow White are considered sensory-friendly, and the Sunday, March 21, performance at 1:30pm will be audio described for those with visual disabilities.
