Now in its 75th year, Highlands Playhouse is an established, and locally supported icon in the local community. Wonderful choice of plays during the summer and fall season. Now opening in the winter months as a movie theater, which is a boon to the community, since other movie theaters require a long drive through or down the mountains. Enjoyed great renditions of "Annie" and "Nunsense" ( hilarious and well casted). Audience participation was a real hit with a play about a local, county spelling bee. Located very close to the main drag and wonderful restaurant scene in classy Highlands, NC. Great place to visit while touring or staying in Western NC.
