Montford Park Players

Montford Park Players, an Asheville theatrical tradition, is proud to announce the upcoming presentation of The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde. The play will be presented at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheater, located at 92 Gay Street in the heart of the Montford region of Asheville, May 4 through the 26th. Performances will be on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, beginning at 7:30pm and, like all of Montford’s offerings, will be absolutely FREE to attend.

Over the years, this raucous comedy has proven to be our most popular non-Shakespeare show. Last presented some time back at Asheville’s Masonic Temple, this year we’re doing it under the stars!

Earnest will be directed by John Preston Mendenhall, last seen in MPP’s Othello. He’s got a great cast to work with, too. Montford stalwarts Will Storrs, Alexandra McPherson, Haven Volpe, Scott Bean and Sonia Rose D’Andrea head up this group of all-stars, along with new stars Natasha Charles, Carter Sue Bostwick, Mike Yow, and John Mycroft.

We hope you’ll start your summer right with a trip to the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre. It’s funny, it’s frivolous, and, as always with MPP productions, IT’S FREE!

“I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

Montford Park Players has been presenting Shakespeare and other classical works to the Asheville community since 1973, and has since grown to be one of Western North Carolina’s most beloved and well-known cultural attractions.
