John Russell, a Gentleman and a Scholar, who is the Managing Director of the Montford Park Players could not have been more helpful in greeting us as we arrive at the outdoor theatre.  Thank you, John, for introducing us to one of the most exciting evenings in Asheville and certainly one of the most reasonable for the public!  FREE TO ALL WHO COME AND ENJOY PROFESSIONAL THEATRE!

The Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre will begin its largest funded construction project in their 43 year history in a few months.  The money was recently awarded for half of the cost by the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority.  However, they need your help!  You can contribute to their capital campaign or by purchasing an engraved brick.  Give them a call at 828-254-5146.
