Montgomery, AL -
Anglophiles and Broadway babies alike rejoice at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival’s 2011-12 Season. It includes the blood-spilling thriller Dracula, the southern premiere of the musical A Christmas Memory, Henry VIII directed by Robert Richmond, the Broadway comedy thriller The 39 Steps, the hilariously nerdy musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and five other outstanding offerings, including two more Shakespeare plays and a world premiere. Season memberships are on sale now. Single tickets for all shows will go on sale at a later date. Membership and ticket information is available by calling the ASF box office at 800.841.4273 or by visiting on line at www.asf.net.
The ASF box office is located at 1 Festival Drive in Montgomery’s beautiful Blount Cultural Park.
ASF’s innovative Membership program costs only $30 per season to join, and enables members to purchase tickets at 15-20% off the single ticket price depending on the number of shows they select in their membership package. Full season membership packages including tickets to five or more shows start at $360, including the membership fee. Members also receive benefits such as premiere seating opportunities, ticket exchange privileges, local dining discounts, exclusive meet-the-artist events, and more.
ASF will open its 26th season in Montgomery with William McNulty’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s vampire horror classic Dracula, October 7 through 30. Lethal fangs wait around every corner and victims lay drained of blood at every turn as Professor Van Helsing continues to chase the evil Count with stake and hammer in hand. This bloody good show has sold out the Actors’ Theatre of Louisville for 17 years, earning reviews like “Jump out of your seat, grab the stranger next to you and hang on for dear life fun!” from Loiusville.com.
