    As of September 1, 2011 the ASF Box Office has moved into the Grand Lobby at the center of the theatre.  Patrons needing an accessible entrance will need to enter through the pergola doors.  The pergola doors are located just before the Grand Lobby entrance under the columned arbor.  These doors remain locked, an attendant will remain at that entrance during performances.  Please contact the ASF Box Office at (334) 271-5353 or ASF Security at (334) 312-1322 to be let in during other operating times. 

     

    Please check here occasionally for updates as renovations and improvements are still in progress.
