Raleigh Little Theatre
Located at 301 Pogue Street, Raleigh, NC 27607, Raleigh Little Theatre is in many ways the centerpiece of the dramatic arts here in the RVA. Lovingly known as the "RLT," it was first opened to the public back in 1936 and is now one of the country's oldest continuously operating community theaters.
The grounds of the Raleigh Little Theatre consist of the Stephenson Amphitheatre and the Raleigh Rose Garden. Contemporary, family-friendly movies are screened under the stars in the Garden. By contrast, the community dramatic productions are usually held in the 298-seat main theater or the Amphitheatre.
There is always something new to see in the Raleigh Little Theatre. Thanks to the 150-seat Teaching Theatre added in 1990, even those with no experience can begin to enjoy participating. Every year, thousands of visitors from all over North Carolina and the world attend RLT performances.
The 2022-2023 season of Raleigh Little Theatre promises to be a splendid one, with each member of the RLT community working hard to restore the theater experience after two years of safety precautions. Pride and Prejudice, Blood Wedding, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be shown.

The Carolina Theatre hosts a full spectrum of events, and the stage is always busy, even when there are no dramatic productions on the docket.
Classic films are also aired, running the gamut from the 1944 romance Frenchman's Creek to 1985's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Sundance Short Films and acclaimed documentaries also feature prominently in the schedule. The Carolina Theatre is known for plenty of kid-friendly programming and great variety.

Looking for doggy daycare here in the Triangle? Our real estate agents can help you find it!
Whether you're looking at Raleigh homes for sale or homes in other area communities, it's no secret that many of our customers love their dogs. When it's time to compare all of the property options, an ample backyard for Fido to enjoy is often a key consideration.
Sooner or later, though, you might find that you need to travel and you aren't able to bring your beloved pooch.
