Press release from Flat Rock Playhouse:
On Monday, August 13th, The Flat Rock Playhouse and the Supporting Players Guild will transform the Rock in celebration of a longstanding tradition, The Annual Dark Night Fundraiser. Beginning at 6 PM, the evening will feature Flat Rock Playhouse favorite, Nat Zegree, as the headlining performer alongside the 2018 Apprentice Company and special guests. This rousing fundraiser will celebrate both the best of The Flat Rock Playhouse and the creation of Broadway quality theater as well as the dynamic craftsmanship within the local community. Attendees can expect a delightful evening full of top-notch food, drink, and entertainment at the historic Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage where innovation meets tradition for Dark NAT Revue: Cultivating the Craft of the Arts!
Audiences fell in love with Nat Zegree in May 2016 for his lively and charming portrayal of Jerry Lee Lewis in the season’s smash hit, Million Dollar Quartet. Again in September 2017, Nat Zegree amazed audiences with his musical prowess and infectious spirit as Mozart in Amadeus. He returned to the Playhouse shortly after in an exclusive one-night-only concert, entitled One Nat Only, to share his journey and how he cultivated his passion into an artistic craft, in a performance that featured only the fundamentals: himself, a piano, and the audience followed by another sell-out performance in December The Nat Before Christmas.
Dark Nat Revue: Cultivating the Craft of the Arts will begin at 6 PM on Monday, August 13th at the Mainstage with gourmet food stations catered by Hubba Hubba Smokehouse, Ingles The Chef’s Kitchen, Cuisine Team, Season’s at Highland Lake, Trinity View, Brandy’s on Main and Hen-Dough.
The evening will also feature an exciting onsite raffle with items designed by the Flat Rock Playhouse Staff including handmade wood crafts, performing arts classes and visual art pieces. Full details for the raffle are available as a part of the Flat Rock Playhouse Online Auction. The Online Auction is open now and allows participants to easily view the incredible experience packages, keep track of current bids on a phone or computer, and participate in the Annual Fundraiser from near and far. Closing at 7:30 PM on August 13th, the online auction will include packages including seeing Hamilton on Broadway (including a meet and greet with the current Hamilton on Broadway, Michael Luwoye, a former Flat Rock Playhouse Apprentice), a theatre trip to London, luxury excursions to Prague, Tuscany, passes to the Elton John Farewell Concert and tickets to the upcoming World Equestrian Game.
