Our Mission

Flat Rock Playhouse YouTheatre, empowers each individual to find a connection between themselves and the arts, inspiring its participants to discover the artistic forces that can positively influence the quality of their lives, families and communities.

Education Philosophy

Performing Arts are vital in the development of the well-rounded child. Children may enhance literacy and phonics skills by reading and writing scripts, scenes and poetry.  Through Visual and Theatre Design, they engage mathematical and spatial proficiencies.  Dance and Musical Theatre classes enhance kinesthetic, musical and sequencing skills. Finally, all classes instruct students in areas of creative thinking, problem solving, expression, self-confidence, ensemble, public speaking, and accountability to the work and to each other. These skill sets are ones that will be helpful to them after they leave our YouTheatre Center.

Please remember our instructors remain active as artists in their own right. We are proud that we make our living as singers, actors, musicians, directors, choreographers and directors in the professional arena. If students wish to pursue a career in the performance industry, our team will be able to guide them and empower them with the tools they need to succeed.

YouTheatre Curriculum supports the NC Standard Course of Study.


Thank you for your support!
