Though the weather outside is frightful, inside this small town train depot it’s delightful.
Asheville Community Theatre invites you to get cozy with Snowbound, a family-friendly play that celebrates this season of giving. Local playwright, musician, and storyteller Tom Godleski used authentic stories and details to create a holiday play steeped in Western North Carolina tradition.
Asheville Community Theatre’s production of Snowbound is directed by Lori Hilliard. Snowbound opens Nov. 30 and runs through Dec. 16 with performances Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm. Tickets are available online at, over the phone at 828-254-1320, or in person at the Asheville Community Theatre Box Office.  
Snowbound is a play written by Asheville native and winner of SART’s 2009 Scriptfest competition, Tom Godleski. The play will include original bluegrass music played live onstage by local bluegrass musicians. This is the second time that Asheville Community Theatre has produced the play.
Snowbound takes place on Christmas Eve in 1955 at a small town train depot where the snowy weather has caused some delays. Over the course of the evening, strangers become friends, friends become family, and the warmth of human connection is deepened through stories and songs. 
The cast of  Snowbound consists of 34 community members, including the band (David Hyatt, John Altizer, Ben Saylor and Tom Godleski) and 13 local children. Many of the people onstage are making their ACT Mainstage debuts.
