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

Footloose

Music by Tom Snow; Lyrics by Dean Pitchford; Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie; Directed by Jerry Crouch; Music Direction by Lynda Shuler
February 8-March 3, 2019

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm; Additional Thursday performances 2/21 and 2/28 at 7:30 pm

When teenager Ren McCormack moves from Chicago to a small town, he isn’t prepared for the stifling local laws, including a ban on dancing and rock music instituted by the local preacher. As he struggles to fit in, he encourages his classmates to defy the local pastor and call for a rock'n'roll prom. With an energetic Top 40 score amplified with dynamic new songs, "Footloose" celebrates the wisdom of opening minds and listening to the voices of young people. A musical version of the 1984 film.

Listen To This

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.
