“Excellent entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Enjoy new and familiar musicals and comedies in a comfortable, well-located venue downtown. Always something fun to see produced well with local community members and excellent sets, costumes, lighting, etc.

“BEST THEATER IN ASHEVILLE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

It may be billed as COMMUNITY THEATER, however, the Productions are TERRIFIC!*
The Theater is quite Lovely, & all of the Staff are MOST helpful, & kind.
They generally have productions, that have been on BROADWAY!
There are a lot of shows, suitable for children, to "grandma"!
GO FIR IT!!
They DO NOT over charge, for their productions.

“As good as Broadway, for much less $”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We were worried at first because 1. parking was non- existent...but then I found the huge parking garage just a few blocks walk away. 2. Our assigned seats were filled by other people...but the usher quickly and efficiently found some alternate seats ...then the director of the play came over to apologize and make sure we were happy. I can tell you there are no bad seats in this house. 3. community theater can mean "iffy" talent...but these people have experience, voice, and talent! We were wowed by "Kiss Me, Kate" and this theater experience! I wish I lived in the area so I could buy season tickets!

“Terrific Shows at this Community Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We had the pleasure of attending the production of "Kiss Me, Kate" on this recent visit to Asheville. The show was terrific! The theatre did a fantastic job in producing this exciting show. We can easily see how locals would be regulars at the Asheville Community Theatre. We will definitely check to see what is playing whenever we are in Asheville.

One suggestion for those going to a production at the Theatre is to take advantage of the Public Parking Lot. We attempted to find street parking and it was basically impossible. The Public Park is only two blocks from the theatre and well worth the $5 to not be driving around searching for a space. Plus there are several restaurants nearby for dinner before the show or drinks afterwards.

I've never been disappointed. The production value of presentations at this community theatre is to be admired. I should have season tickets...it's that good.
