Rocky Hock Playhouse was founded in August of 2000 by Jeff and Gloria
Emmerich. Over the past decade it has become one of America's most unique
full time professional Christian theatres. The Emmerichs write and produce
four to five original musicals each year. In her career, Gloria Emmerich has
written over 65 full length musicals including: King David (Sweet
Psalmist of Israel), Simon Peter (Fisher of Men), Paul
(Fearless Lion of God), Noah's Incredible Cruise, Heaven Came
Down, Joy Unspeakable, Born this Day (in the City of David),
Out of the Darkness, and Jacob, Prince of God among many
others. (These musicals are published and available through Emmerich
Publications, Inc., in Minneapolis, MN.) The Emmerichs hire outstanding
actors from across the United States to perform in their Broadway style
Christian musicals. The Rocky Hock Playhouse, a stock company theatre, is
located in Edenton, North Carolina. The Playhouse has roots that go back to
1997 when the Emmerichs started a summer theatre in Nags Head, NC and
produced Mike Herron’s Under His Wings (the Love Story of Ruth and Boaz).
The Playhouse has a family theatre atmosphere and premieres musicals based
on biblical characters, themes, and stories. Over 235,000 people have now
enjoyed performances at the Rocky Hock Playhouse in its various locations in
eastern North Carolina. The Playhouse was located in Washington, NC from
2009 to 2011 but moved back to Edenton in 2012.
Coming this Summer!
