Flat Rock Playhouse will present its annual Dark Night Revue fundraiser, but this time with a blast from the past. On August 15, the Supporting Players Guild of Flat Rock Playhouse will present Dark Night Revue: Let’s Rock Back to the Future!

Set your DeLorean for AUG 15 2016 06:30 PM because Flat Rock Playhouse is going back to the future. This year’s annual fundraiser is celebrating the best of the past, present and future of Flat Rock Playhouse. The evening will feature cocktails, live music, one-of- a-kind silent auction items, artist demonstrations, dinner and a one night only performance featuring the 2016 Apprentice Company, Flat Rock Playhouse staff and your favorite stars from the Flat Rock Playhouse stage.

“The Supporting Players Guild, led brilliantly by Dark Night Revue Chair, Dale Llewelyn, has worked tirelessly to make this a truly unforgettable evening,” says Ashley Pirsig, Director of Development for Flat Rock Playhouse. “Not only will folks be blown away by the food, auction and live entertainment… I also think this year we might break our $75,000 fundraising record.”

The DeLorean Time Machine, as seen in the film “Back to the Future,” will be appearing for photo opportunities at Flat Rock Playhouse on Monday, August 15th 2016 in Flat Rock, North Carolina. Don’t miss your chance to have your photo taken with this faithful unbelievable, street legal replica featured in the trilogy. Built to match the original by husband and wife team Oliver and Terry Holler (who met on the stage of Flat Rock Playhouse in 1992), this DeLorean features the famous ‘Flux Capacitor’, working time circuits and even comes equipped with a hoverboard! It has been driven over 650,000 miles touring five countries and all 50 states. An ambassador for the official web site, their car has appeared in international ad campaigns and is used to raise funds and awareness for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
