Supporting Players is a dues-based volunteer group. If you would like to learn more, please contact Volunteer@Flatrockplayhouse.org with your specific interests.

The Ushers Volunteer Guild

Ushers play a pivotal role at Flat Rock Playhouse. Participants have the chance to usher at every show during The Flat Rock Playhouse Season on the Leiman Family Mainstage. Responsibilities include greeting and assisting guests, scanning tickets, distributing programs, providing helpful insight to the grounds, and light clean up after shows. The program is dues-based and requires training prior to the first volunteer shift. Flat Rock Playhouse also provides a rewards system: the more shows you volunteer, the more perks you earn!

The usher program is wildly popular, and we are grateful for such generous support. To reserve a spot on our waiting list and learn more about ushering contact Ushers@Flatrockplayhouse.org.

North Carolina State Garden Club

The Master Gardeners are proud to create and maintain the beautiful surroundings of Flat Rock Playhouse. If you enjoy what you see you’ll be even more inspired by participating. The garden experts share knowledge, skill, and helpful hints at every work session. You’ll see the fruits of your labor with every visit to the Playhouse and have some fun along the way.
