Playhouse Downtown Venue Information
A Unique Performance Space
We are happy to offer the first full season of shows at Playhouse Downtown in 2012. This 250-seat multi-purpose performance venue offers a 3/4 thrust configuration with comfortable riser seating. There isn’t a bad seat in the house where you can be mere feet away from the action!
In the Heart of Downtown Hendersonville:
The Playhouse’s new theater is located at 125 S. Main St., in the vacant corner property that used to house Main Stay’s shelter for women and children. It’s in the same block of South Main Street as Never Blue Tapas Bar and Grille, Square One Bistro, an art gallery and Jongo Java coffee shop.
Just around the corner are Two Guys Pizza & Ribs and West First Wood-Fired Pizza, and within walking distance farther down Main Street are a variety of restaurants that theater-goers could patronize before or after the show — Blue Note Grill, Flight Wood Grill & Wine Bar, Hannah Flanagan’s Pub and Eatery, Mezzaluna Brick Oven and Tap House, Black Rose Public House, Cypress Cellar, Mike’s on Main, Champa, UMI and others.
“We hope the venue will act as a ‘Gateway to Main Street,’ offering patrons a theatrical experience unique to Western North Carolina.”
