Watching a Christmas Carol with family was a real delight. The theater was nice, clean & warm. And the bathrooms were clean. The concessions had reasonably priced snacks. I didn't partake at the bar but it was popular.

Winton Blount donated the ASF to Montgomery in the mid 1980s and ever since its been one of the best regional theaters in America. They will have Shakespeare and other world class playwrights, as well as world premieres. I just saw Charlottes Web-very good.

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!
