In 1937, a group of struggling performers organized themselves as the Vagabond Players and eventually, they presented their first summer season of plays in a 150-year-old grist mill they converted into The Old Mill Playhouse at Highland Lake. In 1952, the troupe of performers, and a newly formed board of directors purchased an 8-acre lot in the Village of Flat Rock, giving birth to Flat Rock Playhouse. In 1961, by Act of the North Carolina General Assembly, Flat Rock Playhouse was officially designated The State Theatre of North Carolina. Flat Rock Playhouse now hosts over 98,000 patrons annually and is a significant contributor to the local economy and the Arts in North Carolina.
