Since the 1930s, Raleigh Little Theatre has embodied community theatre. The campus, nestled in a residential neighborhood near downtown, includes three performance spaces and a scenic rose garden.
A small staff and more than 500 volunteers work together to produce quality live stage performances. In addition to about 11 productions per season, Raleigh Little Theatre has become a center for performing arts education with classes, camps and workshops for ages 2 through adulthood.
The education programs serve the community while promoting self-esteem, building confidence, stimulating creativity and laying the foundation for a lifelong love of the arts.
Executive Director Charles Phaneuf enjoys seeing parents and grandparents introducing kids to the magic of live theatre for the first time. Attendees are treated to a quality theatre experience with sets, costumes and acting by their friends and neighbors. This community-building theatre helps bring people together through the intimate art of storytelling.
