For the past 22 years, the Raleigh Little Theatre's education program has been teaching local kids all about the theater and providing them with opportunities to perform.
Among the programs is Storytellers to Go!, a performance ensemble for teens ages 14 to 18. And the group, along with others that are part of the Raleigh Little Theatre, perform throughout the region. I always think it's great for kids to see other kids doing something that they do well at. So these are great opportunities, especially because they're free!
Storytellers to Go! will perform "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" at libraries across Wake County and the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex over the next few months. Admission is free, but one location does require reservations. The show is about 45 minutes long.
