Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.


As one of the North Carolina’s most innovative and exciting theatre arts centers, we present a wide range of comedy, contemporary drama, musicals, and Shakespeare in our totally flexible performance space.

Theatre In The Park (TIP) is located in the northern end of Raleigh’s scenic Pullen Park and is internationally acclaimed for its outstanding theatrical achievements—more than 40,000 people attending our programming last year alone. TIP is second only to the celebrated Louisville Actor’s Theatre in original works premiered— producing over 40 original plays during the last two decades (two of which moved to off-Broadway).

Originally chartered in 1947, TIP started out as The Children's Theatre of Raleigh, Inc. During the early 70s, its name was changed to Theatre in the Park in order to reflect its expanded programming, location and new "home" in The National Guard Armory building located in scenic Pullen Park. In 2004, the building was renamed as “The Ira David Wood III Pullen Park Theatre,” to reflect the decades of work done by Executive and Artistic Director, Ira David Wood III.

The facility includes a beautiful garden (named for its caregiver, John Bento, a fellow City of Raleigh employee), Season Member Lounge, administrative offices, costume shop, technical workshop, dressing rooms, lobby and totally flexible (black box) performance space. The theatre is in-door, air conditioned and has a seating capacity of approximately 250. Year-round programming includes no less than four main stage productions, classes, workshops and independent productions.
