When planning your event, please note that Archer Auditorium has limited availability at certain times of the year.  Each February, the auditorium is in use for the Ashland High School Musical.  Mid-April through mid-May and early December are also quite busy with school events.

Groups scheduled to use Archer Auditorium are asked to complete the Archer Auditorium Event Work Order at least three days prior to the event, or two weeks prior if requesting the orchestra pit cover to be raised or lowered.  This helps us ensure that everything is ready for your arrival.
