The State Theatre of North Carolina, the Flat Rock Playhouse, is one of the top ten summer theatres in the nation. Broadway-mountain style is the best way to describe this professional equity theatre to be found in a lovely forested setting in Flat Rock. Actors at the Playhouse come from across the nation and have acting credits including Broadway, feature films, national tours, television, off-The Flat Rock Playhouse, pen & ink drawing by Lee James PantasBroadway and regional theatres. Sets are designed by the resident scenic designer and in the scenic studio adjacent to the theatre by playhouse carpenters.
Then Flat Rock Playhouse (The Vagabond School of the Drama, Inc.) was established in 1952. In 1961, the playhouse was given special status with the honorary title of The State Theatre of North Carolina by the N.C. State Legislation in recognition of its high production standards. As the State Theatre, the Playhouse strives to offer a variety of fare each year with an emphasis on diversity.
