We really enjoyed this play. This one took place in a smaller theater in the basement, and was more interactive for the children. I don't think they did a good enough job with the advertisement, because I was expecting a more elaborate production upstairs, like Mary Poppins. I think it would have been nice to know in advance what to... More

We saw Always, Patsy Cline, and enjoyed it. The performers were excellent, and the theater-in-the-round venue is fa-bu-lous--not a bad seat in the house. The grounds, too, with bronze sculptures and lovely open spaces, are a treat. The theater is modeled after London's Globe Theater, and the attendant told me that they even imported some of the materials from England... More

took our two grandchildren to see A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Our seats were perfect. The theatre is lovely, lovely, lovely. Very tasteful and very elegant. Most of the staff were helpful but a couple of older ladies who were ushering, seemed to want to be elsewhere. They offered no programs. We had to go back up and locate them for ourselves.... More

My wife and I recently spent a weekend in Montgomery and the highlight was a visit here to see Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". I mainly just wanted to see the theatre itself but the show was so good. It is not a large venue and I am sure that everybody would feel close to the stage. Our seats were on... More

Our party of 7 was running late, and when we arrived right at show time, an usher was waiting outside to quickly get us seated just in time for the show to start. Now that is good service! We hadn't even called. The play was phenomenal as usual. We are already looking forward to returning for Alice in Wonderland!

Great play. My wife and I really enjoyed it. Also the park outside the theatre is picture perfect. I highly recommend for any one looking to catch a nice play. Book early and get good seats. Also better deals on first play opening night.

If you like to relax your mind and discover great things about Montgomery and Alabama in general, please visit this place. The festival lobby opens at 12:00 noon, but you can begin exploring the park and other nice areas few hours before noon.

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..
