Attendance policy

We expect students to attend class regularly and on time. Since much of the class work is focused on building an ensemble, it is imperative that all the team members be present. If a student must miss a class, please email Kathleen Rudolph at

Late pick-up policy

Students must be picked up promptly at the end of class. There is a 5-minute grace period after each class. Because we value our instructors’ time, students picked up after the 5-minute grace period will be charged a $5.00 per 5-minute fee, billed to the student’s parents or guardians. No students under the age of 18 may be left unattended on RLT property.


RLT has off-street parking available for patrons, visitors and volunteers. Entry is via Pogue Street. Some of the spaces in the parking lot are designated as “Permit Required.” Please be advised that this is enforced Monday through Friday from 9 am – 5 pm. If you are visiting us during those hours, please stop by the business office for a temporary parking permit.

Open Classrooms

“Open Classrooms” are informal presentations of the materials learned by students during a session. Held on the last day of class, parents, friends and family are invited to attend. Information will be sent home prior to each Open Classroom.

Class schedules

Raleigh Little Theatre does not always follow the Wake County Public School System schedule. Classes may meet on certain days that your child has off from school. Please reference the information for each class.

Inclement weather

In the event of inclement weather, please call the theatre at 919-821-4579 or check the home page of our web site to find out whether or not classes have been cancelled. Since our classes are usually in the afternoon, schools may have to cancel while we do not. In the event classes are cancelled, RLT will schedule make-up classes as quickly as possible.


We have partial scholarships for all classes taught at the RLT, Knightdale, and Wendell locations. These are funded by donations from individuals and organizations, and from Teaching Assistants who receive a tuition waver for classes they assist.
