Asheville Insider Tip: See Free Live Performances Each Weekend.
The Montford Park Players have been performing free Shakespearean shows in Asheville since 1973. These outdoor performance take place at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheater in the Montford neighborhood each weekend (Friday through Sunday) from June through September.
Be sure to take a blanket or a chair to lounge in the lawn. If you prefer, seating is available at the venue. A concession stand offers refreshments and restrooms or better yet pack your own picnic to enjoy. Children and pets are also welcome - just be considerate of the actors and others. In case of rain, shows will continue as scheduled in light drizzle. However shows will be cancelled for heavy downpours and electrical storms.
