Flat Rock Playhouse presents “All Shook Up”

Flat Rock Playhouse presents “All Shook Up”

Travel back in time to 1955 to a small, dreary cookie-cutter town where everything is about to change. A young mechanic, Natalie, dreams for adventure and love. Suddenly, a mysterious, leather-jacketed, guitar-playing, hip-swinging stranger shakes up the people of this small town as they discover romance, rock & roll, and riotous fun! This musical fantasy is built around songs made famous by Elvis Presley including hits like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” and, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Backed by a rousing Elvis score, this crazy and uplifting musical comedy will have audiences jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes! “This is a great big Broadway show that never loses its mind or its light touch, with the accent on fun. It’s a roustabout’s joyride.” Journal News “A mixed-up merry-go-round of fun anchored by all those Presley tunes. Lightweight, to be sure, but it floats very nicely indeed.” Associated Press

Shows Wednesday through Sunday. Times vary by day, check the Flat Rock Playhouse website!

Hendersonville Community Theatre presents Hairspray Jr.

Hendersonville Community Theatre presents Hairspray Jr.

Hendersonville Community Theatre will shake and shimmy when students from Henderson, Buncombe, Polk, and Transylvania counties perform Hairspray JR. Hairspray JR. is presented by Champion Comfort Experts of Hendersonville.

The family-friendly show captures the spirit and turmoil of 1962 Baltimore through laughter, dance, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Hairspray JR. also includes the important message: that acceptance comes in all shapes, sizes, and nationalities.

The story follows Tracy Turnblad, a full-figured girl with full-figured hair and a big heart, who has only one passion – to dance. When her determination and rock ‘n roll moves land her a spot on a local television dance program, “The Corny Collins Show,” she is transformed from an outsider to an irrepressible teen celebrity. This trendsetter in dance and fashion uses her fame to win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, challenge the program’s reigning princess Amber, and rally against racial segregation…all without denting her ‘do.

There will be a complimentary opening night pre-show party and reception on July 20 starting at 6:30.

Hendersonville Community Theatre presents Hairspray Jr.

Hendersonville Community Theatre will shake and shimmy when students from Henderson, Buncombe, Polk, and Transylvania counties perform Hairspray JR. Hairspray JR. is presented by Champion Comfort Experts of Hendersonville.

The family-friendly show captures the spirit and turmoil of 1962 Baltimore through laughter, dance, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Hairspray JR. also includes the important message: that acceptance comes in all shapes, sizes, and nationalities.

The story follows Tracy Turnblad, a full-figured girl with full-figured hair and a big heart, who has only one passion – to dance. When her determination and rock ‘n roll moves land her a spot on a local television dance program, “The Corny Collins Show,” she is transformed from an outsider to an irrepressible teen celebrity. This trendsetter in dance and fashion uses her fame to win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, challenge the program’s reigning princess Amber, and rally against racial segregation…all without denting her ‘do.

There will be a complimentary opening night pre-show party and reception on July 20 starting at 6:30.

Street Dances features Appalachian Fire / Bailey Mountain Cloggers

In 2019, the annual summer tradition of The Street Dances celebrates its 101st anniversary! The Street Dances began in 1918, when the citizens of Hendersonville took to the street to welcome home the soldiers from WWI. The Dances features mountain heritage bluegrass music, square dancing and clogging every Monday evening from July 8th through August 12th. On each of these 6 Monday nights, starting at 6:30pm, the caller, William Puckett, will teach audience members some basic square dancing moves so that everyone can join in on the fun led by the evening’s clogging group.

Week 1 features music by Appalachian Fire and dancing by the Bailey Mountain Cloggers.

In addition to you danging shoes, bring a chair to enjoy an evening filled with live music, dancing and entertainment from 7 – 9pm. The audience seating area opens after 5:30pm, and early admission is prohibited. Please leave your pets comfortably at home, as a Hendersonville City ordinance prohibits animals in event areas. Admission is free. No alcoholic beverages, backpacks or coolers allowed.

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be postponed until 8pm. If the weather does not improve by 8pm the performance will be cancelled.
