“Enjoyable evening of Shakespeare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Outdoor dramatic adventure with decent acting and stagecraft. You must bring your own seat and something to eat. Show up early for good seating. A relaxing evening when the weather permits.

“Good, Low-Budget "A Christmas Carol"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

A few days before Christmas, two of us went to see the MPP's rendition of "A Christmas Carol" in the Masonic Temple. There were some good performances from some in the ensemble, and the intimate setting added to the experience. Sound, lighting and sets perhaps could have done a better job of enhancing the story told, but for fifteen dollars each, my expectations were not high, and I did not leave disappointed. I would see the MPPs again for another performance.

“Give it up for James King and The Montford Players”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

What a show loved the music and all the actors way to go. Cant wait for the next one directed by James King what a great director. The dinner table setting was by fare my favorite lady Macbeth had great character and the tone set by the witches was spectacular. Over all the whole play was great would see this play again.

“The Scottish Play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The Montford Park Players gave a very nice performance. Located in the upstairs theatre at the Masonic Lodge in downtown Asheville, the actors, sets, and lights were excellent. The costumes were a bit lacking, but overall it was a very enjoyable performance.
