About Teens on Stage/Teens Backstage

Our production of As You Like It is the culmination of our two teen summer conservatories: Teens on Stage, 13 acting students, and Teens Backstage, 4 technical theatre students. Teens on Stage students attend classes, rehearse, and perform the show, while Teens Backstage students learn and apply skills to build and construct everything from props and costumes to graphics and animation and serve as the running crew for the production.

The Linda O’Day Young Scholarship

An annual scholarship has been created for Teens on Stage and Teens Backstage in honor of Linda O’Day Young. Linda was incredibly proud of the hard work and talent of teens and also of the Youth Scholarship Fund that has assured that no child is ever turned away from taking an RLT class or camp due to an inability to pay. In an effort to cherish Linda’s legacy, this fund specifically covers the cost of one participant’s tuition in each of the teens intensives: Teens on Stage and Teens Backstage.

If you or someone you know was impacted by Linda’s artistry and time here at Raleigh Little Theatre, we hope you will consider making a donation to this scholarship fund. You can donate online and write “Linda O’Day Young” in the notes section of the online form.

As Linda said, “Theatre is love, and there is no better antidote for all the fear and anger in the world today than love.”
