We have seen several great productions at ASF most recently The Little Mermaid and Mary Poppins at Peter Pan. They always put on a great show. The only issue I have is the leg room and small seats, which are uncomfortable for large people. I hear Always Patsy Cline is coming back, which was a great show we've seen there... More

My fiancee and I have now seen production in this theater. We saw the little mermaid most recently and last christmas we saw "A christmas carol". Both productions were absolutely fantastic, there was no bad seat in the house. The drinks they offered at the bar as well matched both productions quite nicely. The theater itself was very clean and... More

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival is one of several attractions in the larger Blount Cultural Park in Montgomery. The Shakespeare Festival consists of two theaters, the Festival Stage which seats just under 800, and a much more intimate theater, the Octagon, which has four rows of seating on three sides of the stage, putting the smaller audience all within 15 feet...

I am repeatedly amazed at the level of performance here at ASF in Montgomery! Rivals Broadway in acting talent, singing, music, costumes, lighting, special effects, & sets! Disney's Little Mermaid & Mary Poppins (year ago) were phenomenal! Actors brought in from across the country to keep superior talent. Shakespeare plays are wonderful too. Annual showing of Dickenson's Christmas Carol changes... More

As always, this production was first-rate. This time was "The Little Mermaid" and it was magical, but I've never been disappointed with anything I have seen at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Truly a treasure and right here in Alabama!

I was able to see the show 2 times while visiting Alabama. I have seen a few productions of The Little Mermaid, and this version does not disappointment. My only constructive criticism would be this: Special effects. When I hear a little girl behind me say, nothing happened (when the grotto was destroyed by King Triton) then you know. Also,... More

My husband took me to see "The Little Mermaid." Awesome production! Our visit and trip to ASF was a part of a surprise "date weekend" from my husband. I highly recommend. The actors were phenomenal and I enjoyed it. It was great to see the children (and adults like me) sing along to all of the songs.

Took my grand daughters to see this. It was great if I had time I would see it again. If you have a chance to go here it is a must go.
