The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company began in 2002 with a small group of artists committed to changing how people think about Shakespeare, by producing shows that allowed audiences to connect to classic works in whole new ways – ways that are fresh, innovative and sustainable.

CSC is devoted to exploring the question “What makes Shakespeare so great?” The assumption is that this quest will probably never be resolved. That is why we invite the audience along for the journey. What is it about this work that resonates? What has lost its meaning? Why do we care and why should we?  

We hope you take a moment to get to know us. As our company expands we want to be a cultural resource for all of Greater Baltimore and Maryland.  Read more here.
