Raleigh Little Theatre is planning its annual costume sale (with some COVID-related changes) and an all-ages show with a limited and distanced audience outdoors.

Raleigh Little Theatre's costume sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10. It's free, but a timed ticket is required for entry to ensure that there are no more than 40 shoppers each hour. Everyone in your party, regardless of age, must have a ticket. So that includes young children who may be tagging along with you.

The sale features a mix of modern and vintage clothing, costumes, fabric, trim and more. Tickets will be available at noon, Monday, Sept. 28. More information is on the costume sale page. You can get a peak at what kinds of things will be offered on Raleigh Little Theatre's Etsy page. The theater is at 301 Pogue St., Raleigh, near Cameron Village.

From Nov. 7 to Nov. 15, the community theater group also is considering a presentation of "Balloonacy," according to its newsletter, which called the show a "tender, uplifting one-performer show for the little ones (and big ones too)." It would be part of the company's Family Series production. Here's more about the show: "Sweet, inventive, and packed with physical comedy, this play explores the power of friendship and shows how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere."

"Our hope is to perform this show for a limited and distanced audience outdoors in the Stephenson Amphitheatre November 7-15, dependent upon current state gathering restrictions," writes Megan Farrell, the marketing manager in the newsletter. More information to come on that.
