So awesome to watch these plays out in the park and as dusk sets in all the magic really happens when the Fireflies begin to light up the stage with their presence. Beautiful way to spend a summer evening

A Winter's Tale, not one of the Bards best, but was a really great production in the hands of the Montford Park Players and Warren Wilson. Young fresh takes on Shakespeare. The price is a bargain/

This was so much fun!! The nicely done outdoor amphitheater was the perfect setting for their upbeat interpretation of The Taming of the Shrew. They started out with a great dance number and then did a super job on the play. On top of that,...More

Saw the Montford Park Players in 1976 and was amazed. Unbelieveably I met Butch Guice of commic book fame and Lewis Grizzard, deceased, a famous hummorist for the Atlanta Journal.
