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!
