Raleigh Little Theatre's youth shows this past season were so popular that some shows sold out and extra shows were added.
So now is the time to nab your tickets for any of the community theater company's youth shows, along with "Cinderella," which has been pulling in sell out crowds during the holidays for more than 30 years.
Individual tickets are now on sale for each of the shows. You also can buy a youth series ticket as well. Here's the schedule with descriptions from Raleigh Little Theatre for the next season, which features three of my kids' favorite books and series. (RLT also offers a host of other programs for older audiences).
Cinderella returns Dec. 4 to Dec. 20. The festive take on the classic tale features great music, costumes and comedy for the whole family. Some fans will buy their tickets now to ensure they get seats along the side and near the front for a better chance to get to try on Cinderella's slipper. Tickets are $33.
A Year with Frog and Toad in November is a musical based on the children's book that was so popular it made it all the way to Broadway. A story about friendship for all seasons. A jazzy score will have the whole family hopping along! Tickets are $17 for adults and $11 for kids 12 and under.
Miss Nelson is Missing next March is a musical about the importance of behaving. Miss Nelson is too nice and can't control her classroom. She disappears and is replaced by the evil Miss Swamp, who is a strict disciplinarian. Desperate, the children try to get her back - but will they ever find her? Tickets are $17 for adults and $11 for kids 12 and under.
Charlotte's Web next April is a tale of friendship and loyalty. The end of the season could mean that Wilbur the pig ends up as dinner. But, with the help of his friend Charlotte, the grey spider, they hatch a plan to save him and make it to the County Fair. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under.
