Mission 

To create quality theatre that challenges and entertains our audiences and nurtures talent.

History

BFT has staged over 250 productions—involving more than 50 directors and nearly 1,000 actors and 500 crew people—that have been seen by almost 100,000 audience members.

In the spring of 1972, three young Birmingham thespians—Carl Stewart, Randy Marsh, and Vic Fichtner—entered a new phase in their theatrical lives. After chafing under the artistic limitations of the area's production environments, they picked up the pieces of Bill Ozier's Actors Studio and began a venture they called Birmingham Festival Theatre.
