Playhouse offers discount for county residents

Flat Rock Playhouse is offering local people a $5 discount to the first shows of the season — "The Odd Couple" on the Mainstage and "Cotton Patch Gospel" at Playhouse Downtown as a thank you their support over the past few months.

"Flat Rock Playhouse would not exist without the support of this amazing community," Artistic Director Vincent Marini said in a news release. "To say thank you, we would like to invite you to help us kick off our 2013 season with a special offer for Henderson County residents at each of our locations. 'The Odd Couple' at our esteemed Flat Rock Playhouse and 'Cotton Patch Gospel 'at our newer Playhouse Downtown location. We hope the residents of Henderson County will use experience both venues."

The Playhouse Board of Directors decided to offer the community a discount as both a thank you and to encourage residents to see the high-quality productions planned for the start of the season.

"The Board is proud of our community for supporting Flat Rock Playhouse with their donations and volunteer hours over the past few months," said Board President Bill McKibbin. "It is now time for everyone to see the rewards. This season's first productions include a popular comedy starring local duo Scott Treadway and Charlie Flynn-McIver, and a musical that retells the Gospel with bluegrass music. This is a season dedicated to our community, and a Playhouse for our community."

Residents of Henderson County will receive $5 off the ticket price for either show, from now through closing night. The offer is good for one or both shows and cannot be combined with other offers.
