    Founded in 1952 and officially designated “The State Theatre of NC” in 1961, the FLAT ROCK PLAYHOUSE is host to 90,000 patrons annually. The delightful variety of musicals, dramas, comedies and classics has wide appeal to the entire family.  Considered one of the “Top Ten Theaters in the Country,” the Flat Rock Playhouse offers quality professional entertainment rarely found so far from Broadway.  You will be thoroughly entertained by the live theater, open mid-April through mid-December, presenting matinee and evening performances, Wednesday through Sunday.  See their website for a schedule of performances:

    Not only is the Flat Rock Playhouse a fabulous place to enjoy live theater, it is an educational venue as well.  Youtheater works with local youth from pre-K to adult for performing arts workshops and classes as well as summer camps.  Apprentice Theater is for those aspiring to expand into a career in professional theater.
