COVID-19 Health and Safety
Raleigh Little Theatre has taken several steps towards reopening the building to audiences at the end of 2020, and students in 2021, while prioritizing health and safety of our community. You can read more about our class safety procedures here.
Beginning with session 1 classes in September 2022, 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. Staff will monitor CDC Community Levels and if at any point the CDC Community Level for Wake County is red (high), masks will be required indoors (and will be provided as applicable) and remain required until the Community Level drops to medium or low. This means classes may begin with masks optional, but then require masks if the Wake County Community Level changes to high. Students, teaching artists, and teaching assistants will be notified upon arrival if masks are required. Regardless of mask requirements, the refund policy detailed below still applies.
Financial assistance is available if tuition is a barrier to participation. Please complete this online form, and RLT education staff will follow up with you about available funds and registration. If a class is listed as full in the registration system, please still complete the scholarship form, as we do hold spots for scholarship recipients.

Accessibility & Inclusion
RLT is committed to making our education programs accessible and engaging for all students. Please note any specific accommodations your student needs on the registration form when signing them up for class. RLT staff will then follow up to discuss your student’s 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 students work with a 1:1 aide, the aide is welcome to attend class alongside your student. If there is something that would make a difference for our teaching artists to know ahead of time regarding engagement and support for your student, please share it with us before class begins.
Please contact us at 919-821-4579 x 245 with any questions or concerns regarding accessibility or to discuss other ways we can ensure a positive, engaging experience for your student.
Refund Policy for Classes
All classes require a $25 deposit and $1.99 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.
Spring break camps have a $50 deposit and $1.99 Course Storm fee per registration that are not refundable at any time. Refunds, minus the deposit and fees, will only be made if the student officially withdraws 2 weeks prior to spring break camp.
To officially withdraw from a class or camp, please email Education@nullRaleighLittleTheatre.org.
If you withdraw from class less than a week prior to the start date of class, or 2 weeks prior to a spring break camp, there are no refunds. But you can exchange your registration for another class for your student’s grade level. 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 class session ends with an informal sharing of student work for family and friends. Students attend the last class at the usual time, and then we invite families to join us for the last portion of class to see their work and hear their reflections on what they’ve learned. The sharing is an opportunity for students to practice the skill of performing in front of an audience. Class sharings vary depending on the class grade and topics, and often include a showcase of favorite theatre skill building games, short scenes or monologues, or an original performance created by the students. More information will be emailed to all families of enrolled students as the final week of class approaches, but do save the date in the meantime!
RLT’s Youth Education Program is supported by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, as well as the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
