We have a great theatre scene in Raleigh! I took my children to see the North Carolina Theatre’s production of Disney’s Little Mermaid recently. It was outstanding and a wonderful professional production.

The local talent was amazing. My children and I were singing “Under the Sea” right along with Sebastian.

In my opinion, it was a great introduction to the theatre for my two kids (ages four and eight) without leaving North Carolina.

Since 1984, North Carolina Theatre has brought quality, Broadway-style productions to Raleigh by having regional performers work seamlessly with Broadway and national stars. All performances are located in downtown Raleigh at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, and performances typically run six nights with weekend matinees. We saw a Thurs. night performance with a cost of $37 per ticket.

Broadway Series South, Carolina Ballet, and North Carolina Symphony also call the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts home. With Broadway Series South, touring productions come into town. Some performances are just one night while other shows run for a week.

There is usually a production performing at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts every week.
