“Wonderful Performances--Professional Actors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Great afternoon or evening pasttime in beautiful downtown Asheville. We had a little difficulty finding parking, but it was worth the walk !! Charleton Heston funded this small theatre years ago, and it seems that many famous actors have performed here. No bad seats...great entertainment...friendly staff...clean...modern..

“Christmas Time in Asheville - Lovely Time in Theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

While in Asheville with loved ones over the Holidays I choose to attend a show which others did not desire and made alternate plans. We all gathered for some sustainence previous and then met up again afterwards.

Though one can purchase tickets on-line, I choose to walk to the theatre (Asheville is such a great/simple walking city). Obtained ticket from a gracious well attentative staffer. Good selection of seat.

Pleace was packed (Holidays and all). Felt fortunate to have the setas that I did (know that SHOULD you have a CENTRE seat that you must walk in from either end/isle as most theatres ... there is no 'centre-to-centre' walkway ---- people are/were gracious to those needing to get by I noticed).

Show offered was charming (though SOME microphones SEEMD TOO elevated and it was uncomfortable for a while to fully listen too until adjustments were made). This IS professional theatre here!

At the end of the show they had a communal/audience participation sing-a-long which was loads of fun and appreciated by those enjoying a sense of community and tradition.

It was apparent that MANY knew one another and were patrons for years (which all theatre companies need to survive).

it IS a larger SMALL theatre, if you will, so there's NOT a massive foyer/food sevices/bar area, if you will, yet what they DO have is PLENTY and decent!

Walking is recommended if staying/residing in downtown core. Easily wheelchair accessible by what was seen.

Bravo!
