    Are Children admitted to the theatre?

    Babes in arms and children under the age of 6 are not admitted to the theatre. Some children's theatre productions are intended for ages lower than 6 years, and in those cases the appropriate ages will be posted on informational materials about those productions. Please see our brochure and web site for specific age recommendations for each play in our season.

    What is the attire for a play?

    You should be comfortable as you attend a play at ASF. While no dress code has been established, most of our patrons wear "dress casual" attire, similar to what one would wear for casual dining. You can expect a wide range of formality, however, as ASF is a great choice for topping off a special night out.

    Can I pick up my tickets the evening of the play?

    Please feel free to pick up your tickets the evening/afternoon of your performance at our Box Office. If you purchase your tickets early (at least a week), they may even be sent to you.

    Do you offer group discounts?

    Yes. Groups of ten or more may receive 10% or more off their ticket purchases. Contact Group Sales Manager Stan Thomas at 334.271.5330 or sthomas@asf.net to schedule an event for your group.

    Are there discounts for children's tickets?

     Yes.  Patrons attending who are 16 years of age or younger receive the youth rate. Please call the box office at 800.841.4273 for discounted youth and young adult tickets. Babes in arms and children under the ages of 6 are not admitted to the theatre.

    Are the actors professional?

    Yes. ASF brings in top actors from across the country belonging to Actors' Equity Association, the union for professional actors and stage managers. The actors in the Intern Acting Company are the only non-Equity performers.

    Can I meet the actors/actresses after a play?

    Yes! Each Opening performance is followed by a dessert reception that the cast and crew are invited to attend. Also, each matinee is followed by a brief question and answer session with two of the actors from the afternoon's performance. This gives you an opportunity to speak with the actors face to face and share your ideas about the show. The actors also become part of the Montgomery community during their time at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, and spend their free time at the same restaurants, shopping centers, and movie theatres that you do, so you never know who you'll run into.

    Do you offer behind-the-scenes tours?

    Yes! Back stage tours are available by request. Please contact the ASF Box Office for more information at 1.800.841.4273.

    Can I have my special event at ASF?

    As both theatres are in performance mode forty-two weeks out of the year, the theatre spaces are seldom available for event rental. However, groups who purchase 20 tickets or more may host a reception at ASF when space is available.  The Shakespeare Garden is also available for rentals. To find out more about receptions and garden rental you may contact the Special Events Manager Elizabeth Schaum at 334.271.5312.
