What People are Saying
Seeing Shakespeare performed live is truly an experience like no other. And the Montford Park Players make live theater an absolute delight. The charm, the humor, the breathtaking excitement and passion of it all — this troupe knows how to leave its audiences utterly captivated, spellbound.
The caliber of a Montford Park Player performance can fool you into thinking these are paid, professional actors and not volunteers. The production team, the actors, the directors and designers and stage managers, all push through the material to find the truth that connects with today’s audience. It’s that dedication that elevates much of what Montford Park Players has accomplished in the past and will continue to achieve in the future.
There is something special about this long-standing Asheville tradition of free outdoor theater that the Montford Park Players provide. Picnics, bottles of wine, pints of local brews and a setting sun combine for a perfect atmosphere. In the world of local theater, these are the official signs that summer is on its way.
