Date night to see "The Great American Trailer Park Musical". Fantastic show! I was little concerned about seating, since I hadn't been to ACT before; no worries, there isn't a bad seat in the house! We sat on the front row and you do look up a bit, but not enough to cause a sore neck. I am excited to... More

This was our 3rd visit. Our second anniversary! We saw "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" which was AWESOME! And we were so excited to see a familiar face in the cast! "Earlene Hooch" from the LaZoom Comedy tour! She was so hilarious, as were all of the other cast members! Wonderful performance! We will definitely return next year!

Theatre was was excellent for a community theatre. Play was very funny and kept us entertained, other than one of the actors not seeming to fit the part and the drunk guy who got thrown out it was a very good evening!

Though we live in the area, we just recently made it to Asheville Community Theater to see "Streetcar Named Desire." I was not expecting what we found. First, it is a very nice facility. The stage is quite large, and the audience seating is wide, but not too deep...the result is that all seats are good seats. What is the... More

My husband and I went to see The Addams Family Musical last year while we were on vacation. It was definitely worth the money. The actors were amazing and we throughly enjoyed our night at the theatre. It is also within walking distance to quite a few wonderful stores and restaurants so you can make a day out of it!

I wanted to do something different and unique. I searched online and found that the theater was doing a play on Amadeus. When I looked at the theater I thought "Great I just wasted that money". But oh to my surprise. It was magnificent. I would definitely be back. Worth every penny

My hub and I were spending the weekend in Asheville, staying at the Renaissance Hotel just steps away from ACT, so we got online and bought two of the last remaining tickets to Saturday night's performance of Amadeus. We thought it would be nice, entertaining, charming... What we didn't expect was the world-class performance by the lead actor playing Antonio... More

We just saw Chorus Line at the Asheville Community Theater and were incredibly impressed. We will definitely be back for many more productions.

We discovered ACT 3 years ago. Never disappointed. Recently, at the smaller theater, 35 Below, we saw JEN & JOHN. This theater holds only 40 people, very intimate. This play was performed extremely well, by only two people. Just tonight we went to the larger theater, which seats at least 200, and saw A CHORUS LINE. A real singular sensation.... More
