Every summer, Raleigh Little Theatre holds a 5-week theatre intensive for ages 14-18 in which high school age students participate in classes and apply their learning to a fully realized production. This year’s program will culminate in a production of Puffs!
Teens on Stage (TOS) classes may focus on movement, voice and speech, text analysis, devising and advanced acting. Teens Backstage (TBS) participants are engaged in all areas of technical theatre including set construction, costume construction, prop building, lighting, sound, and scenic painting. Teens Backstage also builds the set and many costumes under the supervision of the Technical Director and design team.
The Teens on Stage / Teens Backstage program is designed to further students’ theatrical training by connecting theatre classes to production work and to develop students as theatre artists by connecting theatre to the world and society. The program is a good fit for a variety of theatre experience levels and the RLT education team believes this variety makes the program even stronger. Our goal is that this intensive theatre-making experience serves students’ goals in theatre and the arts and also in developing their communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills that can be used in a variety of ways in their lives.
