Celebrate with us as we rededicate our theater as a landmark Baltimore site, in the historic Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust building.
With its gorgeous carved ceiling, brass doors, and majestic columns, this Victorian building contributes to each patron’s theater experience. We have honored its origins as a bank building by giving its historic address to Scrooge & Marley’s counting house in our Baltimore adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by Ian Gallanar.
Join us as we install the brass plaque designating the building’s status on the National Register of Historic Places. A new exhibit about the life of the building, including artifacts from the Mercantile bank, will grace our mezzanine.
As we converted this landmark into a theatre for the classics, we recognized that our adaptive reuse also would make us caretakers of a beloved historic site. Patrons tell us their families banked or worked here. Generous funding for the rededication and exhibit have been awarded by the Baltimore National Heritage Area.
Come to the rededication ceremony, stay for a tour and refreshments.
Lights, sets, sound: We’re shining a spotlight on opportunities for women in theatre’s technical and design fields.
