About Us

Our Mission: We create community through energetic, joyful, and accessible classic theatre.

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is the leading classic theatre company in Maryland, offering vibrant performances that delight our patrons by breathing new life into Shakespeare and other classic plays. One of the six largest theatre companies in the state, CSC serves diverse audiences with funny, moving, rousing mainstage seasons, a vigorous education program that serves over 16,000 students annually, and our innovative traveling "Shakespeare Beyond" that brings free Shakespeare performances directly into neighborhoods across Maryland.

Plan Your Future Visit

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company audiences experience great performances in two of the most beautiful venues in the state of Maryland: our home for the classics in the heart of Downtown Baltimore and our “summer home” for outdoor Shakespeare at the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in Ellicott City.

We can’t wait to see you at both our theatres again soon!
