RhinoLeap Productions is a new professional theater company comprised of artists from all over the United States who are committed to performing and teaching specifically in North Carolina.  Most of our company members are from and/or have received training in North Carolina, and since RhinoLeap’s founding, we have hired current students and alumni from Appalachian University, Elon University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-School of the Arts, Eastern Carolina University, Wake Forest University, Greensboro College and Guilford Technical Community College.

Simultaneously with our productions, the professional actors we hire also lead educational residencies in North Carolina Public High Schools in order to bring high school students into direct contact with our experienced, working professionals.  We have already held residencies in Alamance, Forsyth, Mecklenburg, Randolph, Polk and Wake Counties.  RhinoLeap’s innovative residency structure exposes students to a wide range of skills, including puppetry, music, movement, and writing.  Through the exploration of those disciplines, RhinoLeap’s professional actors guide the creation of original, student-generated projects.  The projects will then be given public performances in which our actors perform alongside the students.  That structure is unique.  Each of our actors and every single student work together, create together, and perform together. 

Upcoming 2019 Residencies:

Bertie County, February 25th-March 8th
