Little Shop of Horrors @ Flat Rock Playhouse | Flat Rock | North Carolina | United States

One of the longest-running Off Broadway hits of all time makes its Flat Rock Playhouse debut in this hilarious musical comedy about a boy and his bloodthirsty plant. “Little Shop of Horrors” hits the Mainstage October 6th and runs through October 21 in Flat Rock.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is a rock musical and horror comedy that follows the story of down-and-out florist Seymour, who discovers a magical, bloodthirsty plant that he names after his unrequited love, Audrey. At first, Seymour is frightened by the murderous desires of the plant, but perhaps he can find something good within the bad. “Little Shop of Horrors” features a score of musical-theater hits, like “Suddenly Seymour,” “Skid Row (Downtown),” and “Somewhere That’s Green.”

Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – Oct 22 @ 4:00 pm
Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School | Banner Elk | North Carolina | United States

Since 1978, this quirky, world-famous festival has been used to predict the upcoming winter weather for the North Carolina High Country.

According to legend, the 13 bands on the woolly worm (woolly bear caterpillar) represent the 13 weeks of winter. Brown bands indicate a mild week, black bands indicate a cold, snowy week. Since every woolly worm has different colors, the Woolly Worm festival holds races to determine which worm is used to make the forecast. The owner of the winning worm receives $1,000!

Festival also includes about 175 craft vendors, food, live entertainment and rides. This two-day family event annually draws more than 20,000 attendees.

Dial M for Murder @ Flat Rock Playhouse | Flat Rock | North Carolina | United States

Halloween is just around the corner and the Playhouse is celebrating the season with the opening of a sophisticated, chillingly sinister thriller that will hold audiences spellbound with suspense! For patrons looking for some spooky seasonal entertainment, Dial M for Murder will haunt theater-lovers with the American crime mystery tale originally introduced in the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same title.

In this unnerving plot, Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and enacts a plan to murder her for the very same reason. Thinking he has arranged the perfect murder and a brilliant alibi for himself, Tony blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds. Unfortunately, or fortunately for Margot, the plan goes awry, the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. In taking advantage of the opportunity to have Margot wrongly convicted of murdering the scoundrel and sentenced to execution, Tony finds himself trapped in a scene of unbearable suspense as the police inspector and an admirer of Margot discover the truth and pressure him to reveal his guilt.

Kill Me Tender Murder Mystery Dinner @ Nu Wray Inn
Nov 3 @ 6:30 pm
Kill Me Tender Murder Mystery Dinner @ Nu Wray Inn | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

Parkway Playhouse and the Nu Wray Inn present Kill Me Tender: A Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre Event.

All hail The King in this interactive, comedic murder mystery. Your voice matters, and YOU solve the case! Since YOU find the killer, there is a different ending each night.

The premise of the evening is: The Burnsville Historical Society’s annual meeting in which members hold a seance to try to communicate with Elvis Presley. Not everyone in the society is happy with the idea of having a seance, and some people just don’t respect The King. Once the gathering is underway, it’s clear there are more than just spirits at work when a society member is murdered. It’s up to you and the other guests to unravel the mystery before anyone else leaves the building.

The evening includes a three-course meal. Cash bar opens at 5:30 p.m.

The Nu Wray has a special overnight package: $250 plus tax includes one overnight stay, two tickets to the Murder Mystery Dinner, one bottle of wine, two Nu Wray Inn wine glasses, and one Nu Wray Inn postcard.
