Grab the guitars and dust off the cowboy boots before heading to the Playhouse Barn for the second chapter of Flat Rock Playhouse’s pickin’ and a grinnin’ series “Autumn at the Opry.”
The concerts, set from Oct. 8-31 will showcase everything from bluegrass to honky-tonk, tin pan alley to pop standards and blues to rock-n-roll. Returning performers include Ben Hope, Katie Barton, Eric Anthony, Nat Zegree, Paul Babelay, Lauren Wright, Jeremy Sevelovitz and Russ Wever.
“ ‘Autumn at the Opry’ was originally programmed for our 2020 season,” said Lisa K. Bryant, artistic director. “Before the pandemic shutdown, the pre-sales for ‘Opry’ were soaring. The show revels in country classics, contemporary country classics, blues, and rock. Mix in the stunning musicians and vocalists the Playhouse is known for like Ben, Nat, Eric, Katie, all of them. It makes sense that the tickets were flying.”
“Autumn at the Opry” will be directed by Producing Artistic Director Bryant. Adam Goodrum will serve as production manager. CJ Barnwell, Ashli Arnold Crump, and Kurt Conway will serve as lighting and projections, costume, and sound design, respectively. Elly Leidner will serve as stage manager.
The Flat Rock Playhouse is located at 2661 Greenville Hwy. in Flat Rock.
