Flat Rock Playhouse, the State Theatre of North Carolina, enriches lives through the art of theatre by sustaining production excellence, nurturing talent, and inspiring creativity in a safe haven for artistic vision, life-long learning and creative risk.
In 1937, a group of struggling performers, led by Robroy Farquhar, organized themselves as the Vagabond Players. The Vagabonds worked in a variety of places over the course of three years, and in 1940 found themselves in the Blue Ridge region of Western North Carolina.
The Playhouse’s dual mission of producing the performing arts and providing education in the performing arts includes a professional series, a summer and fall college apprentice and intern program, year-round classes and workshops for students from kindergarten through adults. Flat Rock Playhouse now hosts over 100,000 patrons annually and is a significant contributor to the local economy and the Arts in North Carolina.

The mission of HCT is to inspire, nurture, enrich, empower, educate, entertain and challenge artists and audiences with theatrical productions that range from the classics to new works; we train and support the next generation of theatre artists; we provide arts education programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community; and we celebrate the essential power of the theatre to illuminate our common humanity.
Hendersonville is a magnet for creative people — entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, and theatergoers from around the world who call the city and surrounding county home. These people and their neighbors are exactly who Hendersonville Community Theatre wants to attract with its new programming, both this season and into the future.
The theater, known as Hendersonville Little Theatre for more than 50 years, has a new name and a new mission. “Little” has been swapped with “Community” — an apt description of the many people the theater wants to bring into its fold. From embracing local playwrights to reaching out to younger audiences, this once little theater has big plans.
