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; Lyrics by Tom Jones; Directed by Mark Jones; Music Direction by Rob Blackwell; Choreography by Jessica Garland
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!

Hosted by Tom Chalmers
Usually the last Thursday of the month!

7:30 pm

Performed in 35below. There are some stories that are just so good they need to be shared with an assembled audience. Local actor/comedian Tom Chalmers invites you to take part in what is quickly becoming one of Asheville’s most popular series, Listen to This. 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.
