Attic Salt Theatre Company Pursuing Excellence Onstage and Off
Please note Attic Salt's current Covid policy, in effect until further notice: Due to the rising number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths due to the Delta Variant of Covid-19, and for the safety of our patrons, Attic Salt Theater Company has made the difficult decision to only allow those who have proof of vaccination into shows it is producing at its studio space. We believe that doing so will help curb the rising number of cases and keep those who have taken steps to prevent further spread of the virus safe. If you have already bought tickets and can not or will not present proof of vaccination at the door on the night of the performance, please let us know and we will happily refund the cost of your tickets. Thank you for your continued patronage and PLEASE stay safe.
Additionally, as per the recent Buncombe County mandate, all visitors to Attic Salt are required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while indoors.
The Summer of Funny is Here!
We're thrilled to be reopening the studio and collaborating with Marquee Comedy, SuperHappy Productions and renowned comedian Ritch Shydner for The Summer of Funny, three months of almost constant comedy. Because who doesn't need some good laughs right about now?

Black Lives Matter
We at Attic Salt Theatre Company stand by the principles of and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. As an organization, we value the talents and knowledge base of the POC actors, teachers and administrators that we’ve called colleagues and friends over the past two decades. We’re proud the decades of work we’ve done teaching students in communities of color, and the relationships we developed with The Partnership for Inner-City Schools over our many years working in New York City.
As we move forward in our current hometown of Asheville, a city still struggling with it’s racial identity and problems, we will continue to evaluate our programs and practices to ensure we our doing our best to be a thoughtful and equitable member of the Asheville theater community. We will continue to find ways to make the arts accessible to audiences, artists and educators of all colors, classes and gender identities.
