Breach of Peace runs Friday & Saturday!

Mike Wiley’s Breach of Peace opens this Friday for a very limited engagement. This interactive virtual performance is unlike any “Zoom theatre” you’ve watched before. Keep your cameras on and stay in the moment during this moving performance about the brave Freedom Riders of 1961. 

Learn more about Mike Wiley here and do some pre-show reading about the Freedom Rides here. There will be a live post-show discussion after each performance, so stick around after the show to ask Mike Wiley your questions.

Breach of Peace runs this Friday and Saturday only, January 22 & 23 at 8:00 PM. Ticket sales close an hour before the show starts, so don’t wait until the last minute! A box office representative will be available via (919) 821-3111 or beginning at 6:30 PM each performance night if you need assistance prior to the show starting.

Auditions & announcements

We’re excited to announce two upcoming performance opportunities at RLT! 

First, we’ll be heading back outside for an adaptation of Snow White for our Family Series, scheduled to open in the Stephenson Amphitheatre on March 13. Audition submissions are due by January 24, so quickly head over to the Snow White audition page for more information!

The production is directed by RLT’s director of education, Meredyth Pederson Cooper, and is open to students aged 14-18. Learn more about the program and how to apply here!
