Flat Rock Playhouse – the State Theatre of North Carolina

Henderson County houses the State Theatre of North Carolina in our own village of Flat Rock.  The Mainstage facility in Flat Rock seats 506 patrons in air-conditioned comfort. There is reserved seating for patrons with special needs and assisted listening devices are available at no additional charge.  Our new Playhouse Downtown, Hendersonville’s newest theatre, is just a few blocks from the inn.  This theatre seats 250 with comfortable riser seating. You won’t find a bad seat in the house where you can be mere feet away from the action!  You don’t have to travel all the way to New York to see a Broadway play.  Below is a listing of their stage performances for 2014:
