2015-2016 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. It’s also a lot of fun!

Subjects covered will include safety, body awareness and partner relationships. The first day will be devoted to hand-to-hand combat including slaps, punches, pushes, pulls, kicks, trips, falls, hand stomps and eye gouges.

Learn what it is like to be onstage by participating in a variety of theatre activities used to build confidence and boost creativity.
