    Human memory is an interesting thing. Time can water it down, remove the impact and significance of past events. As I watched the 13th anniversary commemoration ceremonies for 9/11, I was reminded of that.More >>

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - More than one million students expanded their imaginations here at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival over the past 25 years.  Next Tuesday marks the silver anniversary of ASF's arrival here from Anniston.  It was an incredible gift from "Red" Blount to his wife Carolyn, and in turn to all of the people of Montgomery, Alabama and the Southeast. 

It is a gift that continues to give – inspiring hope and dreams in school children every year, and moving adults year round to enjoy the comedies, tragedies and revelations of life through classical theatre, groundbreaking new plays birthed here through the Southern Writers Project, and enchanting musicals that helped us through more than our share of tough times.

To the artists and craftspeople who make magic daily in this theater's own costume, props and scene shops, making the costumes and sets that are the envy of theaters nationwide.

 To the actors, playwrights and artistic directors who make these stages that sit across a lake atop a hill a transformative experience. 

And to you, an engaging and supportive audience who truly appreciates this treasure in our own backyard. May the next 25 years be as alive, spirited and fresh as the first 25!
