Beautiful location, beautiful building and grounds! And the play was fantastic. We saw The Tempest and we were so impressed. I can't believe the place wasn't sold out. If you like Shakespeare, make the trip to this theater. I hope to return soon.

Montgomery is very fortunate to have a facility of this stature. The park around is lovely and the quality of the theatre is great. Sadly, the Saturday night performance was more than half empty.

A group of us went to see the play The Tempest. The theater is a wonderful structure and the the actors in this particular play were superb.

We went to an awesome performance of The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The Octagon (intimate theatre inside) is a super cute little venue and the entire brick building is really beautiful! Definitely a great place to visit in Montgomery.

Seats close to the stage, this experience was wonderful. Truly enjoyed the play. The actors did a masterful job and this brought back wonderful childhood memories from when I was a budding thespian.

I wore casual clothes. Not blue jeans but nice pants and blouse. The men didn't wear coat and tie. Some people were dressed up and some were not. I did not feel out of place not being dressed up. Hope this helps!
