Flat Rock Playhouse Postpones 2020 Season

With deep regret, Flat Rock Playhouse has announced it will cancel the balance of its 2020 season and shift the entire Mainstage series to 2021. Ticketholders will be contacted by the Playhouse Box Office team starting in the coming days about their tickets.  “We are heartbroken to have to make this decision,” said producing artistic director Lisa K. Bryant. “With state-mandated limitations on gathering sizes for the foreseeable future, as well as recent information that union rules for actors returning to work may not even be issued until summer, it is now clear we cannot reopen in mid-July as we had hoped. The right decision for the long-term health of the Playhouse and for our patrons is to move the entire 2020 season to 2021.” This decision was ratified unanimously by the Playhouse Board of Trustees.
