Theater production

Great local theater. Small town charm. A lot of music and smaller productions. Close to very good restaurants. Good for a fun night out and not pricey.

Great small venue. The band was good. There is a dance floor in front of the band. Dancers block the view of the audience. The band should be elevated or cut out the dance floor. I might as well be at home listening to an album if I can't see the band.

We have attended several events at the downtown Flat Rock Playhouse, and we have really enjoyed them all! It is great to have this venue in Hendersonville!

We saw "Dirty Dancing, the Music and Dancing of Dirty Dancing" yesterday afternoon. A great show performed by very talented singers and dancers in a venue that was clean, comfortable and had good acoustics! It was an audience participation show where folks were encouraged to get on the dance floor and dance along to the music. Fun, fun, fun!

Everything about this venue is first-class. All performers are professional. Seating is comfortable without a bad seat in the house. Sound and lighting are excellent. Each year's schedule of performances seems even better than the year before.

Visited this venue for the first time to see "The Music (and dancing) of Dirty Dancing." We arrived early enough to obtain the last parking spot in the onsite parking area (small area). The theater was nice and cool on a hot day and the lobby area is large with seating. There is also a bar area to purchase drinks.... More

What can you say about a concert showcasing the music of Billy Joel and Elton John other than that it was terrific!!! The musicians are talented, high energy and got the audience singing, humming and toe tapping in their seats!!! Another great musical show at the downtown playhouse!

We have gone to several performances at this site. Seating is on 3 sides. Small enough that you can see an hear well. Another advantage is that this is in downtown Hendersonville and there are a lot of restaurants close by.

We went and saw 'James and the Giant Peach'. It was a good production, faithful to the story, and the actors and actresses did a good job. The sound was overall fairly good, though at times it was hard to hear. Lights and seats were also average, nothing to write home about. It's fairly small, but great for kids and... More

This playhouse holds 3-400 people and is a great venue for watching a play or listening to a music review. Just about 40 minutes from the west side of Greenville it is easy to get to. There are a lot of places to eat and shop in town as well. Reasonable prices and a pretty neat town. We will be... More
