Beyond The Stage Door Field Trips

Raleigh Little Theatre is pleased to start offering field trips again. For the 2021-2022 school year, field trips will be offered March-May 2022.

Field trips run 10am-12:30pm on the date you book and include a workshop and a tour experience for a maximum of 30 students per day. The two hour field trip includes a one-hour workshop and a one-hour backstage tour.


Field trips typically consist of a backstage tour and one or more workshops. Here are some examples of workshops we’ve offered in the past:

If you have a particular workshop topic in mind that you don’t see listed here, let us know, and we will do our best to create a unique, engaging experience for your students.

Lunch Option

Between the workshop and the theatre tour, students may choose to take a half hour lunch break. The group supplies the lunches.

Backstage Tour

In this one-hour backstage tour, students get a rare look at the world the audience doesn’t see including the costume shop, dressing rooms, backstage and the scene shop. Students get an actor’s view of both stages, and learn about the various theatre jobs and skills required to produce a play.
