Deal for Playhouse

The Henderson County Commissioners are likely getting soft with funding for the Flat Rock Playhouse. After refusing to disburse their appropriation until the nonprofit tightened its accounting practices, Commissioner Larry Young met with interested parties to negotiate.

The ice melted when an unnamed soul said she would donate $100,000 if matched by government. Young soon agreed to release half of the county’s $100,000 appropriation provided the venue clean up their financial practices as well as the tawdriness seeping into theatre producitons. Young also asked that the Village of Flat Rock fork over some dough.
