The Best Christmas Pageant was a lot of fun. For us because we don't have any kids, so this reminded us of our own experiences and childhood mandatory plays. Very funny!

We have been to this theater several times and have enjoyed every performance. This show is one of my favorite books, so I was so excited to see it. The actors were awesome! I laughed and cried! Such a touching story and it was WELL DONE! Thanks ACT! This made the Christmas season more special!

We took our daughters to the Saturday night performance and had a blast. The performance had many "laugh out loud" moments and the acting was great. I thought the set was very impressive. My daughter is playing Gladys Herdman in an upcoming church performance, so she was giddy with excitement to watch another performer in action. I also love the... More

We had such a BLAST at Young Frankenstein!!! That does not begin to describe it! Everyone was amazing. We were thoroughly impressed!!! My personal favorite was Igor, 100%. I could not believe that a high school student could play such a PERFECT role -flawless. He will go far, without a doubt! We were also shocked, and at the same time... More

Another great show at Asheville ' s Community Theatre. We have loved attending all the shows here, and have for the last 12 years. It seems to us that the quality of local preformers in this area is outstanding. Bravo ACT, and to Susan Harper and her staff. If you are visiting or a local, and haven't been here yet,... More

I admit I do not have a lot of play experience to compare Young Frankenstein to but it was absolutely mesmerizing! From the cozy theater to the talented actors, I was impressed. I laughed the entire time, the characters were hilarious. Igor was especially dramatic and would love to see the actor again! We will definitely be going to ACT... More

Went to see Young Frankenstein, and was completely blown away by the incredibly talented group that is ACT. Hands down: the best musical I have ever seen. My only regret is going on the last night, and therefore being unable to bring friends and family back for this show in particular! Looking forward to going back next month -- I'm... More

OMG! Laughs abound. This was a wonderful production. A wonderful night out. It was obvious the audience was beyond happy. And, Igor, darling, you were magnificent!

By far this was the best play/musical we have seen at ACT. The professionalism and talent of the cast was unrivaled. Loved the musical numbers. We both woke up singing 'Puttin' on the Ritz' this morning! The Frankie puppet and stage sets were incredibly well done. Big round of hearty applause for all of the characters but Igor's character, in... More
