Accessibility

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival is committed to recognizing the accessibility needs of our patrons and strives to make our productions and facilities accessible to any patron who wishes to enjoy the magic of live theatre.

To order tickets, contact the Box Office at 1-800-841-4273 or 334-271-5353. You can also email the Box Office at info@asf.net. For group sales, contact Stan Thomas at 334-271-5330 or at sthomas@asf.net.

Please specify if you need additional accommodations or accessible seating when ordering tickets. This will ensure you are able to get the most out of your visit to ASF.

As of September 1, 2011 the ASF Box Office has moved into the Grand Lobby at the center of the theatre. Patrons needing an accessible entrance will need to enter through the pergola doors. The pergola doors are located just before the Grand Lobby entrance under the columned arbor. These doors remain locked; an attendant will remain at that entrance during performances. Please contact the ASF Box Office or ASF Security at 334-312-1322 to be let in during other operating times.

Please check here occasionally for updates as renovations and improvements are still in progress.

Sign Language Interpreted Performances

Please give ASF one month notice in advance to request a sign language interpreted performance, to allow time for preparations.

  • Sign language interpreted performances can be arranged by request with 1 month advance notice before the date of the desired show.
  • Only one interpreted performance will be arranged for any production, date determined by the first request. The selected date of the interpreted performance will be advertised. Patrons can also check this page periodically for any updates.
  • Patrons bringing their own interpreter are welcome.  Please contact David Roberson if your interpreter will not be in a seat while interpreting, in order to make arrangements.
  • Sign language interpreted dates are subject to change or cancellation; two weeks notice will be given, when possible, in the event of a change or cancellation.
