Charlotte’s Web: CANCELLED
Mar 28 all-day
Flat Rock Playhouse

Wilbur, an irresistible young pig, who desperately wants to avoid becoming “pork chops,” meets an extraordinary spider who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Based on E.B. White’s classic American children’s book, this treasured tale of endearing farm animals and the people who surround them explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship. Featuring a cast of local students and parents, Charlotte’s Web is a charming production fit for the whole family.

In adherence to the latest North Carolina state government restrictions of public gatherings, addressing the spread of COVID-19, Flat Rock Playhouse will be suspending all programming from March 16 – April 23.

 If you purchased tickets for a performance that is being canceled, please contact the Box Office beginning 10 am on Monday, March 16 to arrange receipt of a gift certificate for the value of your ticket.  We also ask that you consider making a gift of your ticket. Theatre is a community that is built on the opportunity to come together to share stories and in this unprecedented circumstance, when coming together is not possible, we need your support more than ever.

Patron Production Preference Survey Flat Rock Playhouse
Mar 28 all-day
Flat Rock Playhouse

Hello Flat Rock Playhouse Patrons, Donors, Friends, and all-around ‘Peeps!’

Please take a few minutes to take the survey and help us as we begin planning for the 2021 season and beyond.  We’ve listed a pretty large range of shows because we want to know what you’re interested in seeing on the stage.  Please choose your TOP 10 favorites in each category; Musicals and Plays. You will also have the opportunity to write in a title or author that may not otherwise be listed.  Please only choose ten of each so we can narrow down your preferences.

As an added note, we endeavor to give you exactly what your heart most desires.  That said, there are many factors that go into selecting shows.  Are the rights available? Can we afford to produce it properly? Does it align with our Union obligations?  These questions and many more are all part of the process and influence what productions we select.  It’s important to everyone at Flat Rock Playhouse that we deliver as much of what the audience desires as we can whenever we can.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to share your preferences with us.  We are hugely grateful for the insight!

Sincerely,

The Artistic Team

Flat Rock Playhouse

Driving Miss Daisy
Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm
Hendersonville Community Theatre

HCT is proud to present, Driving Miss Daisy, the winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway

Lord Teach Me How To Love Again
Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm
Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium

 

The exciting Hit Heartfelt Stage Play that’s touching people all across America.

“Lord Teach Me How To Love Again” This Theatrical performance is about promises made, promises kept, and promises broken. Loving the wrong person and losing family. Being broken by wrong choices and rising up through Gods Grace. Beautiful stage-play that will put tears in your eyes, laughter in your voice and a song in your heart. This is one you don’t want to miss.

TRAITOR by Brett Neveu
Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm
The Magnetic Theatre

This modern adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People follows the fate of a small suburb and its newly opened charter school. The science teacher, Dr. Stock, discovers issues on the school grounds and takes on a mission to inform the public. Both hilarious and heartbreaking, this play addresses themes of truth, greed and denial, while serving as a mirror for our outrageous political reality.

Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm
NC Stage Company

Well is a funny and touching comedy about mothers and daughters, mind over body, social activism and theatre itself. Lisa, the onstage playwright, attempts a memory play about her force-of-nature mother, Ann, who though constantly ill manages to heal a community. The playwright asks the provocative question: “Do we create our own illness?” The answers she gets are much more complicated than she bargained for as the play spins dangerously out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory.

Little Women CANCELLED
Apr 3 @ 7:30 pm
Asheville Community Theatre

ACT: Closed Through May 1, 2020

I am sure this email is not unexpected, but that doesn’t make it any easier to write.

Asheville Community Theatre will be closed for the foreseeable future. We are unable to know when we will be able to reopen. It is our intention to reschedule any upcoming event; we also understand that this may not be possible.

Here’s what we do know:

  • All performances, rehearsals, classes, auditions, volunteer training, and any other activity scheduled to take place in the ACT building from now until May 1, 2020 has been cancelled.
  • We will reassess as time moves forward and we have more knowledge about when it will be safe to be in large or small groups together
  • We already cannot wait until that next jubilant gathering!

During this time, our staff will be working remotely. You can reach any of us through email – so don’t be a stranger!

If you have tickets to a performance scheduled between now and May 1, 2020, our Box Office staff will contact you directly – either by email or phone – over the next week to ask your preference regarding your purchase.

We ask for your patience as we navigate this process.

With your purchase, you may choose to:

  • hold your ticket to exchange until future dates are known (Little Women only)
  • donate your ticket purchase to the theatre as a tax-deductible donation OR
  • request a refund for your ticket purchase

If you are financially able, we invite you to donate your ticket purchase. As you can imagine, this will be devastating for arts organizations who rely on ticket sales to stay afloat. Your donation will help ACT to weather this unfathomable storm and be ready to reopen when we’re able to be back together again.
