My wife and I recently spent a weekend in Montgomery and the highlight was a visit here to see Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". I mainly just wanted to see the theatre itself but the show was so good. It is not a large venue and I am sure that everybody would feel close to the stage. Our seats were on... More

Our party of 7 was running late, and when we arrived right at show time, an usher was waiting outside to quickly get us seated just in time for the show to start. Now that is good service! We hadn't even called. The play was phenomenal as usual. We are already looking forward to returning for Alice in Wonderland!

Great play. My wife and I really enjoyed it. Also the park outside the theatre is picture perfect. I highly recommend for any one looking to catch a nice play. Book early and get good seats. Also better deals on first play opening night.

If you like to relax your mind and discover great things about Montgomery and Alabama in general, please visit this place. The festival lobby opens at 12:00 noon, but you can begin exploring the park and other nice areas few hours before noon.

I have been here several times and never been disappointed...we just went to see Mary Poppins and it was excellent. The grounds are nice and the buildings are beautiful especially at night all lit up. Everyone should go once and you will go back..looking forward to seeing The little mermaid..

Over the years, I have attended many functions at ASF, Mary Poppins was absolutely, positively my all time favorite! My husband and I went on a date night. If it comes back to the area, it is a must see!

I attended an afternoon performance of Mary Poppins. This was a destination trip - driving with friends 7 and 1/2 hours specifically to make our first visit to Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Certainly the facility is impressive, but I was left wondering where the $1 million dollars the organization claimed to have spent on the show went. A few observations: The... More

We saw the performance of Mary Poppins with our extended family and friends on Aug 2 using a group rate of 30 per person. The performance was fantastic. It had me clapping and singing along with their famous tunes...even though I have to ask my iPhone to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Haha! If you can get a ticket, go! You won't regret...

We have seen a few shows at the ASF and were blown away. The shows are of the highest calibre with fabulous actors, set, design, costumes and on and on. I didn't know anything about the festival, but upon arrival, the majesty of the building sets the scene for what to expect. It's amazing! Go see a show!
