The Alabama Shakespeare Festival is among
the largest Shakespeare theatres in the world. Designated as the State Theatre
of Alabama, ASF has been located in Montgomery since 1985 when it moved from
Anniston as a result of Mr. and Mrs. Wynton M. Blount’s gift of a performance
arts complex set in the 250-acre Wynton M. Blount Cultural Park.
