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 must be paid in full at registration.  There is a $2.49 non refundable Course Storm fee per registration. Refunds minus the fee, will only be made if the student officially withdraws 2 weeks before the start of a class.

Spring Break & Summer camps have a $50 deposit and $2.49 Course Storm fee per registration that are not refundable at any time.  Refunds, minus the $50 deposit and Course Storm fee, will only be made if the student officially withdraws 2 weeks before the start of class.  

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

 If you withdraw from class less than 2 weeks prior to a class or 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.

Open Class Visits (for Ages 4 – Grade 2)

Classes for students aged 4 to Grade 2 will offer parents the opportunity to observe either the 4th or 5th class of the session to get a first-hand idea of what is going on in your child’s class. We offer an open classroom over a “performance” experience so that our youngest students can focus on the process of theatre, rather than a finished product.

End of Session Class Sharings (for Grades 3-12)

Classes for Grades 3-12 end 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.

COVID-19 Health and Safety

You can read more about our class safety procedures here.

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.


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.
