UPDATE: The regular 2020 Season has been canceled. However, tune in virtually for Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas (see details below).
Flat Rock Playhouse is officially designated The State Theatre of North Carolina. They present a stellar line-up of shows since they are a Professional Equity Theatre. It's just 30 minutes from Asheville in the village of Flat Rock near Hendersonville. What began as a few weeks of summer performances in 1940 is now year-long season of productions including Broadway musicals, comedy, drama, and concerts.
Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas (Virtual)
November 30-December 20, 2020
The Christmas show comes to your home this year! Experience the magic and merriment on stage and around town as this year's one-of-a-kind production filmed on the Rock and in Hendersonville, capturing the spirit of the holidays like never before with dancing on Main Street, fireside singing, stunning performances on stage, and a virtually connected chorus. Tickets go on sale November 9, 2020. To buy tickets and get details, go to their website.
The barn-like appearance of the main stage facility is reminiscent of their summer stock beginnings, but today it houses state of the art lighting and sound systems. It's located next door to the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site.
The dress is casual, but bring a sweater or jacket since they keep the theatre cool for the actors. Group discounts are available for 10 or more people.
