We have been to Flat Rock Playhouse a couple of times while we were vacationing in the area. We are small theatre buffs in our home town so Flat Rock was a natural for us when we are in the Flat Rock, Saluda, Hendersonville area.

The quality of the productions at the Flat Rock Playhouse are amazing. We attended a production of Zelda about F Scott Fitzgerald's wife and were blown away with Sets ( so good for such a small stage) acting and singing. We later attended a production of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum. As good as anything... More

The performances are always Top Notch - playhouse is small, which is certainly a plus! Sound system & acoustics are superb, seating comfortable and access is easy. Assistance for both visual & hearing impaired is provided, if needed.

This was our third time to see a play here and we have never been disappointed. They always do a great job and the history of the place just makes it that much better.

Visited FRP with a tour group this weekend to see Dickens' Christmas Carol. What we liked: 1. The approach to FRP is beautiful--among the trees in the mountainous area around Asheville. 2. The performance was EXCEPTIONAL: outstanding acting, singing, directing, and costumes. Very much look forward to the next visit. 3. It was freezing and windy outside as we waited... More

a travel destination sure to please. Located within walking distance of the Carl Sandburg home national attraction, and within 3 miles of several of the best restaurants in the greater Asheville/Greenville area. Theatre shows run the gamut of drama, comedy, musicals and feature talented and popular casts. Kids Theatre workshops are a plus

We went to see A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM and were very pleased with the performance and the playhouse. It was a great afternoon. I would highly recommend it if you are in the area.

We saw "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Very well performed and entertaining. A good way to spend a beautiful Saturday evening. Looking forward to the next production.
