Update: We're updating this story to reflect some new dates for the show as a production team member has tested positive for COVID-19. The show was originally scheduled for March 13 and March 14 and March 20 and March 21. The March 13 and March 14 dates have been canceled out of an abundance of caution, according to the theater, and new dates, March 27 and March 28, have been added.

"Ticket holders for the March 13 and 14 shows have the option to exchange their tickets for a future performance or receive a full refund," according to the theater. "An email will be sent to current ticket holders with further instructions. Please email if you have questions."

Raleigh Little Theatre is prepping for its second outdoor family show since the pandemic began. Shows are scheduled March 20 and March 21 and March 27 and March 28.

This time, 200 tickets will be sold for each performance, up from 100 for its first family show in the fall, as gathering restrictions have lifted a bit. The amphitheater can normally seat a couple thousand people, so there will be plenty of room to be socially distant from others.

Masks must be worn by everybody, ages 5 and up, and can only be removed while actively eating and drinking while in your designated seating area.

Some logistics ...

  • You are welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Bathrooms are available inside.
  • You can bring blankets or chairs to set up in your assigned space.
  • The show runs about 75 minutes with no intermission and will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are $17 for adult sand $12 for kids 12 and under. Here's a description, courtesy of RLT:

This is not your typical “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! This imaginative retelling of the classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs features a princess, her evil queen, a huntsman, one magic mirror, and the legendary seven dwarfs – all brought to life by two actors! Expect the unexpected in this hilarious, fun, and fabulous fairy tale.

The community theater has worked hard in recent years to provide sensory-friendly performances, which is important for people with autism and other sensory concerns. RLT considers this performance sensory-friendly, though notes that loud noises could come from the amplified microphones that will be used. It has created a full guide to attending sensory-friendly performances in the amphitheater during the COVID-19 pandemic.
