2013-2014 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.
