Alabama Shakespeare Festival To Suspend Performances, Events
In the interest of public safety and in light of minute-by-minute changes related to the novel virus virus, including state of emergency announcements issued by President Trump, Governor Ivey, and Mayor Reed, as well as school and university closure plans, Alabama Shakespeare Festival will suspend performances following matinees on Sunday, March 15.
Cancellations will affect these activities, performances, and productions effective March 15:

ASF will continue to update patrons and ticket buyers on these and upcoming productions via email, our website at ASF.net/FAQ, our social media channels, and our media partners.
ASF asks patrons not to visit the Box Office in person to make ticket changes. Patrons should contact the ASF Box Office between noon and 5 p.m. (Central Time) Monday-Friday at 334-271-5353 or BoxOffice@asf.net to request a credit for a future performance, request a refund, or make a tax-deductible gift of their current ticket value.
The resulting cancellation of various public events will have very real financial consequences for theatres and theatre artists. Nationwide, thousands of theatre professionals' jobs and healthcare are at stake.

The following options are available for those who have already purchased tickets to cancelled performances:
- Donate your ticket and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value
- Credit your ticket value towards a future ASF performance
- Request a refund
