I've seen several plays at the Asheville Community Theatre. Most recently, Hairspray, by director Jerry Crouch. Jerry is a great director and has a flare for pulling everything together. Enjoy a night out at the ACT!

We happened to be visiting Asheville when The Odd Couple was playing at ACT. Excellent production and very talented actors. Parking is very limited so be prepared to walk.

ACT does a fine job presenting a variety of shows on a small stage in a small theater. Musicals, comedy, and drama could all appear on the bill during the season. Whatever you choose, you'll find dedicated, talented actors, sets that are more sophisticated than...More
