The Education Program is beginning its 28th year. We offer year-round instruction for students ages 4 to 18, an initiative supported by two full time staff, along with adjunct faculty. More than 1,000 students enroll each year in classes, camps and workshops. These are offered onsite at RLT, the Apex Halle Cultural Arts Center, the Knightdale Recreation Center, the Wendell Community Center and the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre.
The goal of RLT’s Education Program is to provide high quality theatre arts instruction in a safe nurturing environment. RLT is dedicated to the belief that theatre training promotes self-esteem, builds confidence, stimulates creativity, sharpens communication skills, fosters an appreciation of team work, raises cultural awareness, celebrates diversity, encourages respect for self and others and lays the foundation for a lifelong love of the arts. The study of theatre not only trains students to be better actors, it inspires them to be better people.
