Once again A Bed of Roses has joined with the members of the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association and the Montford Park Players to offer a one of a kind theater experience. The longest running Shakespearean theater company in North Carolina is right here in the historic Montford District of Asheville, performing outdoors in the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre in Montford Park during the summer months and in the historic Masonic Temple Theater during the winter months. Well known and beloved in the area for bringing “free Shakespeare to the Park”, the Montford Park Players are a hidden treasure not often experienced by visitors to Asheville.
Now you can not only see a Montford Park Players production, but you can get the full VIP treatment! The VIP pass includes special reserved seating, a signed play script, a lawn blanket (for couples), a free T-shirt designed for that performance only and a complimentary beverage (wine, beer or soda). But the best part is you will have the opportunity to “dress up” and take a costumed walk-on roll in a scene of the production!
The Summer Season in Montford Park runs from May 9th until September 14th, starting with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged and hilarious) and ending with Hamlet. Performances this year include The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice, and Love’s Labor Lost. Performances go inside to the Masonic Temple theater on October 10th for Othello, running until Oct 27th and A Christmas Carol December 5-22.
Performances are Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7:30PM. For performance schedules click here www.montfordparkplayers.org.
Advanced booking is required.
VIP tickets are $18.00 for adults.
