After two weeks of gloomy news, Thursday was a good day for the financially strapped Flat Rock Playhouse.

First, county Commissioner Larry Young, the most vocal critic of financial management at the Playhouse, helped broker a tentative deal to release $50,000 of county funds to the theater company in exchange for greater fiscal oversight.

Meanwhile, corporate and private donors stepped forward with $150,000 in commitments, said Producing Artistic Director Vincent Marini. That’s on top of $43,700 collected already during a theater fundraising blitz.
