For more than 6 decades, Asheville Community Theatre has been delighting audiences with high quality performances starring the Asheville community!

The Fantasticks

Music by Harvey Schmidt; Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones; Directed by Mark Jones; Music Direction by Rob Blackwell; Choreography by Jessica Garland Lowe
February 7 – March 1, 2020

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm; Additional Thursday performances 2/20 and 2/27 at 7:30 pm

"The Fantasticks" is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: it’s a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time and is punctuated by a series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become classics. "Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences around the world!

The Asheville School of Improv is excited to present a combined showcase featuring students from the recent sessions of Basic Improv and Beyond Basic Improv. Teacher Tom Chalmers always wants for his students to experience improv in front of a live audience. Come be that audience that these talented students so richly deserve. Children are allowed to attend but please be aware that these are adults doing unscripted scenarios so one never knows what might happen. Well, we do know that good times will be had by those on stage and in the audience. So come on down. And maybe you'll take a class and be up on that stage yourself some time soon. This event is free and open to the public. Reservations encouraged as it is a small theater.

Great Falls

By Lee Blessing; Produced by Mockingbird Theater Company; Directed by Chanda Calentine
March 6-22, 2020

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm

A man lost in his life drives across the American West with his stepdaughter—a young woman at the beginning of hers. He's trying to make peace with the ghosts of his past; she's just trying to survive. This WNC premiere tells their compelling and complex story, as they test how much they can trust each other—or whether they can ever trust each other again. Starring John Hall and Audrey Wells.

A storytelling format in the vein of “This American Life,” Listen to This is an evening hosted by Chalmers with stories and songs from some of Asheville’s most interesting writers, performers, and citizens. Each installment features a central theme (past shows have featured stories about everything from gluttony to mistaken identity). Real people. Real stories. Real good times.
