2014-2015 Adult Education Program

Steps to the Stage

Raleigh Little Theatre is pleased to present adult acting classes designed to take students through the process of preparing for the stage. The adult theatre classes offer the same commitment to excellence found in the Youth Education Program where the goal is to provide high quality theatre arts training in a safe nurturing environment. We believe that theatre arts training extends well beyond the stage as well by promoting self- esteem, building confidence, stimulating creativity, sharpening communication skills and fostering an appreciation of teamwork.

If you have any questions, please call or email me.

Readers Theatre (APEX)

Ages: 55 and up

Have you ever seen a play and thought, “I could do that!”? Well then this class is for you! Readers Theatre is a style of theatre in which actors do not memorize their lines and use vocal expression to help the audience understand the story rather than sets, costumes, intricate blocking or movement. Learn what it is like to be onstage by participating in a variety of theatre activities used to build confidence and boost creativity. The session will culminate in a Readers Theatre presentation for friends and family. No previous experience necessary. Limited to 10 participants.

Fridays, 9:30-10:30am
September 5 – November 14 (no class October 10)
Performance will be held at 10am on November 14.
