The Montford Park Players Reviews & Ratings

  • A cool little park tucked away in the historical Montford neighborhood of Asheville. There is an awesome stage area where they have free Shakespeare plays. Even the trees there have neat little outfits.

  • Good night for outdoor play. First time attending Shakespeare in the Park. Romeo & Juliet. The performers were enthusiastic, the audience was attentive. I was pleasantly surprised with how well behaved the children were. Easy to get to, free parking, drinks & food available.

  • Easy to find, plenty of parking, well-behaved pets and outside food/alcohol allowed. We absolutely loved the performance! Would highly recommend if you’re visiting Asheville in the summertime.

  • We ALWAYS have a terrific time watching the players. I love observing the ebb and flow of individual participants. My family has been visiting the performances of the Montford Park Players for a few years and one starts to feel connected to their particular brand of demonstration. Because of the support they appear to offer one another and the welcoming atmosphere of the Theater, attending tends to feel like home. Performances are a treat for any age, and vary to meet audience members at any level of Shakespearean experience. Because shows are free they do a bit of campaigning before, between and after sets but never a sense of pressure coinciding. I recommend reserving a seat. It's three dollars to hold your place and the plastic Adirondack chairs are far more comfortable than the ground. Also, there are always vendors ready to deal out tasty snacks and local artisan treats. If your short on funds tho, make this event a picnic! Just remember that attendees often bring their fur babies so guard your yummies or prepare to share.

  • Wonderful outdoor theater. Parking is very limited at the venue itself, do park along the approaching streets and walk in. Very tough access for handicapped. But once you're there, it's magical. The kids will love it too.
