I have been here several times and never been disappointed...we just went to see Mary Poppins and it was excellent. The grounds are nice and the buildings are beautiful especially at night all lit up. Everyone should go once and you will go back..looking forward to seeing The little mermaid..

Over the years, I have attended many functions at ASF, Mary Poppins was absolutely, positively my all time favorite! My husband and I went on a date night. If it comes back to the area, it is a must see!

I attended an afternoon performance of Mary Poppins. This was a destination trip - driving with friends 7 and 1/2 hours specifically to make our first visit to Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Certainly the facility is impressive, but I was left wondering where the $1 million dollars the organization claimed to have spent on the show went. A few observations: The... More

We saw the performance of Mary Poppins with our extended family and friends on Aug 2 using a group rate of 30 per person. The performance was fantastic. It had me clapping and singing along with their famous tunes...even though I have to ask my iPhone to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Haha! If you can get a ticket, go! You won't regret...

We have seen a few shows at the ASF and were blown away. The shows are of the highest calibre with fabulous actors, set, design, costumes and on and on. I didn't know anything about the festival, but upon arrival, the majesty of the building sets the scene for what to expect. It's amazing! Go see a show!

I took my family to see Mary Poppins on July 25th. The show was very high quality. The actors never missed a beat, and the set was perfect. During intermission, they even served special drinks named for the play ($8 each). We all had a great time (hubby, me, and kids age 6-18). I would definitely recommend this play for... More

We went to see Mary Poppins and took 4 little girls! Was a very delightful show and was absolutely amazed at the performance. First class. Girls loved Mary Poppins going above the audience with her umbrella. Also, we weren't aware but on opening nights they serve desserts and champagne in the lobby. Had a great time with my little girl!

My travel club went to see Mary Poppins in Montgomery at Shakespeare Park. The Park is beautiful and the production was delightful. You can enjoy a walk on the beautiful grounds, visit the museum, and see whatever production is being presented at the time. The theater has good acoustics, plenty of room for the sets, and is kept cool enough... More

Shakespeare grounds are beautiful along with the walking paths, gardens, lake, etc. We have been there many times to see plays and we all love it. We take are 4 grandkids a couple times a year and that is always a big event for them.

Coming all the way from Denver for the theatre, we had the opportunity to see three plays during the theatre's repertory week, and they were amazing! The talented actors that were brought in for these plays and the direction, staging, costumes... ALL of it was just tops! We had a wonderful stay at the Wyndham, nearby, and hope our son... More
