Anita Russell: The Outdoors - RLT Gardens, was the location for Exploris Middle School (06/09/2023) Graduation Exercises!!!The Future Class of 2027- has officially exited Middle School 🏫 God willing these up and rising Freshmen will be walking into High School in August/September 2023!!!!Nice location to watch our family members receive their Certificates.Way to Go future leaders!!!!
LORRIE POLIQUIN: The theater is a great place to see small regional shows. The place is clean and the outside gardens are a wonderful place to visit while you wait for the doors to open. My only negative about the place is that the seats are Very hard and uncomfortable to sit in. My suggestion is to bring a cushion.
Deb McNaughton: Hands on a Hardbody is fantastic! Great acting, fun music, a wonderful experience all around!
Smith Chipley: Great play will definitely be going again.
Patricia Parada: Bellas obras teatrales y espacios
Rebecca Poling: My five year old granddaughter had gone to Raleigh Little Theatre on a school field trip. She enjoyed it so much she asked me to take her again. It was fun and unique! The stage setting was bright and colorful, and invited young children to sit on pillows right next to the actors. The message that the characters delivered was to be kind and accepting of others. It was an uplifting experience!
Janice Malcom-Graham: Very hospitable greeters and we enjoyed tge show!
Tori Brock: So fun to have a fun event to go to with my oldest daughter and once my youngest grows up a little more I will definitely take her to shows here as well. Great job Fancy Nancy Musical cast!!
Trutina Maria: Great intimate space to catch a show!
Evan Mullinix: Beautiful outdoor theatre, quality casts and great production.
Polly Rodriguez: Wonderful little show perfectly keyed to the young audience. Great performances by all.
Ann K: Love it.
Jennie Frmdablock: Cozy venue. Went to see the review for African American performances this year. It was great!
Alinda Jones: I drove all the way from Virginia Beach to see my grand daughter play outside and it was awesome as always
Helen Sumrov: Yesterday we attended the 4pm "The Surprising Story of The Three Little Pigs." It was awesome. We all giggled and cheered. We loved how the characters visited us before and after the production. My four year old got signatures on his play bill from all the characters. An hour was the perfect amount of time for little ones. We will definitely be back for future plays.
Charles King: Intimate theatre with large stage. Cast was great, not a bad seat in the house
KAM9- KYRA: Love this place
Steven Mitchell: The staff and volunteers do a wonderful job performing plays and educational opportunities.
Alison Thompson: Great talent! Friends all went to see Pride and Prejudice recently which they incorporated many funny innuendoes and kept the audience engaged.

Zaneta Freeman: I went to see my six year old nephew perform. They did a modernized version of Snow White, and they did AWESOME! Tickets were only five dollars, but I would've gladly paid more. Fantastic job Raleigh ACT!

Brian Kemerait: Great acting school
April Miller: I continue to be so grateful for our decision to join RaleighACT. My children have thrived here and learned so much --- including how to care well for your friends and be a team player. Parent after parent I interact with after classes all praise Miss Blaire and Miss Paula's creative input and care for their children. We just LOVE RaleighACT!!
Kim Collins: Raleighact offers more than auditions, rehearsals, and shows. Your children will grow into hard workers all while having fun. Great Joy in seeing my daughters growth since her first introduction to Ms Blaire and Ms Paula! She is learning life skills that will be with her always.

Durant Road Musical Theatre: what do users think?
Joe DeLangie: It was a great acting experience for my daughter!
Corinne McCain: I sadly can’t recommend doing shows here if you are more casual about theatre. Basically, it seemed that if you weren’t willing to be on any of the theatre teams for whatever reason, it was very unlikely you will ever get a big role. Even after I had gone to Durant road for multiple shows, it seemed Mrs. Dina could never remember me or my parents. Mrs. Dina could be really passive aggressive at times as well. Unless you’re willing to sell your soul to theatre, don’t go here.
Heather Allenby: Sadly I can’t recommend this business to anyone. The employees and the kiddos are very nice but unfortunately the owners feel it is appropriate to bully a child when they are given negative feedback they don’t like. After sharing a safety issue with the owner and watching her throw a toddler size tantrum yelling and dramatically causing a scene, I assumed I caught her at a bad time. The issue was never resolved bc I wasn’t allowed to talk. After the following two days of camp, my son shared multiple occasions where he was shamed publicly, isolated from the other kids and embarrassed all bc the owner didn’t like his parent. My child was innocent and not involved but the severe lack of professionalism and maturity of the owner clearly showed through the passive aggressive manner she tried to hurt a child. Luckily for us, our child’s resilience and maturity far surpass the owners and was aware that she was projecting her not liking negative feedback into him. If you plan to tell the owners how wonderful they are and throw a ton of money at them, I’m sure it will be fine. Just keep any concerns to yourself until your child is no longer in their care.Added- “can’t please the parent”? I wasn’t looking to be pleased. Safe and kind was all we needed. Which we had until you were given negative feedback. Then my child was bullied by the owner. Shamed and bullied the last two days. My history of reviews is maybe 5 total in my life and only two negative. Nice try to deflect back on me. I only leave a negative review if it has been an experience that causes harm to others.
Dance Etc.: I have been working with Ms. Debbie and DRMT for 17 years. She is professional, energetic and committed to offering her students an excellent experience in the Theater. We are grateful for her generous service to the Raleigh Theatre Arts community! Thank You DRMT!
Jakob Harvey: Absolutely love everyone there, they always try and make the theatre a very kind and accepting place! 100% recommended!
Gene Parker: Durant road musical theater is a great place to go. You make friends, dance, sing, and act.
Ursula Furnas: i look forward to coming here evey week. Its great for people with tons of experince but its also great for people with none!
Crystal Dickens Realtor: DRMT is truly the place “where your kid can go to be in a show”. Every child has an opportunity to shine and grow! It has been a game changer for my kids’ confidence and they have made friendships that will last forever !
Shannon Young: I'm 9 years old and going to Durant Road Musical Theatre for the first time. It is such a fun place we get to learn really cool dances and we learn fun songs too. Mrs. Dina is super funny, Christoper is goofy and Mr. Dean does a great job teaching us songs. Mrs. Debby is so sweet and I am learning so much about theater.
Presley Emory: I had my first camp at Durant Road this week and I loved it so much, The atmosphere felt like everyone Welcoming and energetic.whenever you walked into the room everyone was laughing and having fun.the teachers are super nice and it’s fast moving but it’s not too fast

Theatre in the Park: what do users think?
Don Sears: Good local theatre with a nice variety of productions each year. Definitely a nice way to spend an evening.
Renu Jain: We watched a Justice Theatre play. Good audio and seating. Ample parking
Sandy Gregory: Ira David Wood at his best playing Sir Walter Raleigh! The cast was exceptional!
Forrest Mason: Awesome little blackbox/thrust theatre doing really great work! Not a bad seat in the house and the performances never disappoint. Would highly recommend checking out whatever is currently on stage there.
Lori Fenty: Saw Forbidden Broadway’s Greatest Hits. So funny, great performers/singers. Loved the show. Looking forward to seeing more shows.
Mitch Morgan: Saw Forbidden Broadway and was amazed at the level of talent by our locals. Very good show. Nice intimate venue.
Dianne Creech: Everything IRA David Wood lll touches is magical. Love love love. IRA David Wood lV has his Father's talents. Theatre in the Park rocks
Noah Heck: Certainly not what I expected for a family outing to see the holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol" at a fantastic facility such as DPAC. Three stars only because the performers did excellent work and the set was very well done. I felt as though Scrooge did not connect with the audience and the rendition was not a good one, something the cast cannot control.Further, forcing political nonsense and pop culture down our throats while trying to enjoy an evening to escape those very topics is in poor taste, at best.I'd be surprised if many (or any) in attendance came to hear your opinions, especially at that price which was a $300 evening for a family of 4.Hardly a classic and no reason to see it again under this direction.
Cory D: The wife and I go to the theater to escape. Not to be browbeat with your political views. You should list something as political satire on Ticketmaster, so that the situation could be avoided. The Christmas Carol was a true waste of $160. I felt the same way this summer when we went to a concert that turned into a right-wing political speech. At least let me know that you're going to lecture me so I don't waste my money
Toler Shore: One of the worst shows I have ever seen. Made it way too political, was good to see alot of people left early last year like myself. Keep it to the story, not that hard.
Allison Hardin: Great place to see a show. Comfy chairs, close to actors.
Claire Krzywinski: Evan Rachel Wood was outstanding in The Father. What an experience!
Michael Miller: Great play... great venue
Two Dense: Get rid of those damn digital programs. A scanner cost me 39.95 without my permission and then didn't work!!!
Kirstie Spadie: Theatre trifecta with the Wood Family dynasty seeing The Father. Really enjoyed returning to live theatre at Theatre in The Park. Ira David Wood and Evan Rachel Wood superb acting, brilliantly directed by son, Ira David Wood, gorgeous set design in the black box space. The Father runs through Aug 21. Don’t miss it. One of the best live theatre companies in Raleigh with devoted theatre fans!
Jinmei Xu: We loved our experience here. The show was well made. All the actresses were great performers. The theater has a intimate seating -- no bad seats.
Justin Credible: Chairs were very comfortable for sitting long periods of time. I suggest bringing a soft cushion to sit on. The particular play we saw was very entertaining. We will be attending another play soon but we will be better prepared next time.
Darryl Cady: Always great theater, enjoy everytime we go ( members )
Gilly Conklin: Fun show and great cast! Nancy Rich sure knows how to pick em.
Kevin Rumsey: Excellent venture
Robert Baxter: This was our first time back in a while. I forgot how enjoyable it was to sit in a theater and just be entertained. Thank you.
