Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre

Welcome to Montford Park Players and the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre!

We want your time with us to be both memorable and enjoyable and details to make the most of your visit are listed below.

Reserve Your Seats!

While reservations are not required, it’s nice to secure the best seats (and even reserve comfortable chairs) ahead of the show. And we’ve made it easy for you: Click Here to Reserve Your Seats!

As a 501c(3) nonprofit charitable organization, we rely on private support to operate and will ask you to consider making a gift when you are making your reservations (you can do that here) or at intermission when actors pass the donation bucket.  We accept all major credit/debit cards and also PayPal. Please consider contributing to a wonderful resource available for you in our community.

There is plenty of FREE parking at the Amphitheatre, with an upper and lower lot. Additional parking is also available at the Tempie Avery Montford Center at 34 Pearson Drive. Street parking is also available when the lots are full. Since we share the lots with the public park, it is advised that you arrive early to get a spot.  Street parking may be available when the lots are full, but watch for “No Parking” signs.

Another free lot is the Asheville Chamber of Commerce at 36 Montford Avenue, several blocks away.


Built into a natural hillside, the Amphitheatre can comfortably accommodate over one thousand people. There are seven level tiers and a sloping lawn above the tiers, perfect for a picnic blanket and/or setting up your portable chairs.

There are no bad sightlines at the Amphitheatre, but if you prefer to rent our plastic chairs in prime locations for only $5, please reserve your seats above or call the box office at (828) 254-5146. Otherwise, seating is on a first come, first served basis. We ask that all of our patrons show common courtesy to those around them. There is no smoking…anything…in the seating area.
