Coming up soon at Raleigh Little Theatre...

New shows, classes, and more!

Happy almost-Thanksgiving, all! We are so thankful for your love and support, especially over the last eight months. It’s hard to believe we’ve almost reached the end of the year, but we are excited to officially be looking ahead to 2021. Before you break for the holiday weekend, take a look at what’s coming up soon at RLT!

Two ways to watch This Wonderful Life

In This Wonderful Life, one actor inhabits every role in this hilariously touching stage adaptation of the iconic holiday film It’s a Wonderful Life. George Bailey, Clarence, Mr. Potter, and the gang come to life as a single actor creates a heartwarming story about the effect one hard-working man’s life has on the people around him.

This Wonderful Life will be performed December 10-20 in the Sutton Theatre to limited and socially distanced audiences of up to 25 people. Masks will be required at all times for those in attendance with additional safety precautions in place. For those who prefer to watch from home, a pre-recorded performance of the show will be available to stream through Broadway on Demand December 17-25. 

Learn more about both options and purchase your tickets today on our website!

This production is dedicated to the memory of Sue Tucker Briggs. 

Coming up in January & February

We are excited to announce RLT’s first few shows and events for 2021! In January, join us for Mike Wiley’s Breach of Peace. This production is not your average “Zoom play.” Keep your camera on for this moving documentary play, based on true accounts of surviving participants of the Freedom Rides, as Mike will be able to see and interact with his audience each night. Breach of Peace will be presented over Zoom on January 22 & 23, with live talkbacks to follow after each performance. Tickets on sale soon!

Also in January, RLT is teaming up with 7-Stories to present In Hindsight, 2020 - two evenings of community stories about the unprecedented year of 2020. The year 2020 will be remembered as a year that challenged us collectively and individually. This event, taking place on January 29 & 30, will feature stories exposing the scars of 2020 and hope for the future. The event will broadcast live on RLT’s Facebook page and YouTube channel each night and will be free to watch. We hope you’ll tune in!

Join us February 19-28 for Caryl Churchill’s psychological thriller, A Number. This two-actor play explores the issue of human cloning through the relationships between a father and his three sons. A Number will be presented in-person to small audiences as well as online. More details will be coming soon! If you are interested in auditioning for one of the two roles, check out our audition information page - details will be added later this week!

Winter class registration opens December 3

A new line-up of virtual classes will be open for registration starting next week on Thursday, December 3! With familiar and new offerings for both kids and adults, we hope you’ll find something you want to try. Classes will start the week of January 24 and continue into late February/early March. Keep an eye on our class registration page next week to learn more!

Giving Tuesday is right around the corner!

The biggest charitable giving day of the year is coming up next week! Like most arts organizations, RLT has been hit hard this year and could really use your help, now more than ever before. We have a goal of raising $10,000 during Giving Tuesday, and we hope you’ll help us get there. More details about Giving Tuesday will be announced on social media next week, so make sure you follow along!

Wishing you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
