Supporting 60 years of performances at the Flat Rock Playhouse


We've all heard of going to dinner and a show but what happens if there's no show!?  A friend of mine works at the Flat Rock Playhouse and told me that they need some help this year.  Flat Rock Playhouse has been a member of our community for 60 years.  If you've never gone to see a performance, book one now.  If you've never given a little to support them, support them now.

Why Should I Support Flat Rock Playhouse?
Flat Rock Playhouse is very different from most theatres.  While, like most theatre companies, we are a not-for-profit, the way that we do business is where we differ from the majority of others.   To borrow an old phrase, Flat Rock Playhouse does it the old fashioned way… we earn it. The very fact that the Playhouse’s budget reflects a smaller percentage from its donor base than most not-for-profit professional theatres means your support is all the more important!   Plus, with such a small percentage coming from its donor base, when you support Flat Rock Playhouse you know that you are standing behind an organization that will always be the best possible stewards of your generosity. We need you VERY much.
