Historical Note

The Vagabond Players began as a theatrical group in New York City in 1937, subsequently having seasons in Pennsylvania and Florida. They performed at the Old Mill Playhouse in Flat Rock, NC, in 1940 and 1941, but disbanded at the start of World War Two. In 1948, "Vagabond' Robroy Farquaher reorganized the company at an old schoolhouse at Lake Tuxedo, NC, and in 1952, with a need to accommodate larger audiences, the group moved to Flat Rock, where for several years they performed in a tent. Over the next few years, funding campaigns and donations enabled permanent structures to be be erected at Flat Rock, and in 1961, the North Carolina General Assembly designated Flat Rock Playhouse the State Theatre of North Carolina.

Robroy Farquhar died in 1983, aged 73, when management of the Playhouse passed to his son Robin, until his death in 2008.

Scope and Contents

The collection primarily comprises what are thought to be the records of Robroy "Robbie" Farquhar, the founder of Flat Rock Playhouse, and his son Robin Farquhar, who became Artistic and Executive Director of the Playhouse after his father died in 1983.

These records include both business and personal correspondence; production records, including playbills, scripts, and photographs; business records, such as minutes, contracts, and accounts; actors' publicity photos and requests for employment; as well as press releases and clippings.

In addition, there are records from the Vagabond Players in New York, Florida, and Tuxedo, NC that predate the creation of the Flat Rock Playhouse, and materials from the New York theatres of the 1930s and 1940s that were presumably collected by Robroy Farquhar.

Additionally, the collection has materials related to marionettes and puppet theatres of the 1930s, primarily in New York City. These have no apparent connection to Flat Rock, and therefore likely to be parts of Robroy Farquhar's personal collections.

Arrangement Note

Correspondence from 2006, when the Flat Rock Playhouse Collection was donated to UNC Asheville, describes rearranging the materials, and that "the original order will deviate considerably from the suggested outline". It therefore seems likely that any original order was lost in the initial processing.

In 2017, the collection was reprocessed to remove duplications, and to refolder as necessary. As part of this reprocessing, some reordering was undertaken, especially with the photographs which were given a consecutively numbered identification, and certain materials were rearranged within boxes and folders. However the general structure of the 2006 arrangement was maintained. At this time, some personal information, such as Social Security numbers, was removed/redacted.

Scrapbook of clippings, programs and photographs documenting the 1951 summer season of the Vagabond Players at the Lake Summit Playhouse. The scrapbook is good overall condition, but some photographs have come loose, or are missing. 

Realia 

Box 52: Printing Blocks 

A collection of 96 metal plates showing photographs of actors from the Flat Rock Playhouse. The majority are fixed to wooden blocks and have a print area of 1" x 1.5", although some are larger. Many blocks are inscribed with the name of the featured person. Some plates are detached from the block. In addition, there is one block with a cartoon. From the actors featured, it is believed the blocks date from the early 1950s. 

Box 53: Printing Blacks and Rubber Stamps 

A collection of 12 metal printing plates with photographs, and graphics. The plates vary in size, with the largest measuring 9" x 6.25" in area. Al the plates are mounted on wooden plates, and vary in condition, with one being particularly eroded. It is assumed that, like those in Box 52, these are from the early 1950s. 

Three rubber stamps. Two for "Flat Rock Playhouse", and one for "The Vagabond School Of the Drama Inc."
