The Flagler Playhouse

As a non-profit 501(C)3 organization, Flagler Playhouse is dedicated to enriching and entertaining the community through “live” theatre. We are actively seeking other “arts” organizations to join us in making our “block” a cultural hub for the county. Our more than three decades of service are well-documented in the newspapers and magazines in the area. Mayors, county commissioners, congressional representatives, and numerous residents sing our praises. The generous support and involvement of our community ensures our continued success.

In addition to our spectacular performances, we are seeking to expand our educational component through workshops, readings, improvisational theatre, and children’s theatre. We work closely with the Flagler County Schools.
