Our adult acting classes are designed to develop a variety of theatrical skills and prepare participants for the stage in a safe and nurturing environment. We offer classes for all experience levels, taught by local theatre professionals. We hope you’ll join us!

Class Sessions

Adult classes are offered in four six-week sessions throughout the year, meeting once a week. Most adult classes meet on Sunday evenings, with classes for ages 55+ usually meeting on a weekday morning.

Over the summer, we offer a selection of one-week adult intensives, held nightly at RLT Monday – Thursday.

Register for all current adult classes here!

Accessibility & Inclusion

RLT is committed to making our education programs accessible and engaging for all students. Please note any specific accommodations you need on the registration form when signing up for class. RLT staff will then follow up to discuss your needs and our capacity for support. Accommodations that we have experience providing include: wheelchair accessible class spaces, large print materials, setting up a visit to RLT before class begins, making fidgets available to support student listening, supporting students to take a break when needed and designing activities to accommodate sensory sensitivities or needs. If there is something that would make a difference for our teaching artists to know ahead of time regarding engagement and support for you, please share it with us before class begins. You can contact us at Education@nullRaleighLittleTheatre.org with any questions or concerns regarding accessibility.

Refund Policy for Classes

All classes require a $25 deposit and $2.49 Course Storm fee that are not refundable at any time. Refunds, minus the deposit and fee, will only be made if the student officially withdraws 7 or more days before the start of a class. 

To officially withdraw from a class, please email Education@nullRaleighLittleTheatre.org.

If you withdraw from class less than a week prior to the start date of class, there are no refunds, but you can exchange your registration for another class. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, you will have the option to switch into another class or receive a full refund.

End of Session Class Sharings

Each RLT class culminates with a sharing of student work. In our adult classes, teaching artists and students will decide together if they would like to open this sharing to family and friends or if the class prefers to keep it closed and only share their work with other classmates.

COVID-19 Health and Safety

Masks will be optional for students, teaching artists, and teaching assistants for both indoor and outdoor classes. Masks will remain optional unless COVID-19 case numbers rise to put Wake County in the red (high) level, as defined by the CDC. Students, teaching artists, and teaching assistants will be notified upon arrival if masks are required. Regardless of mask requirements, the refund policy still applies.
