Join us as we invigorate Downtown Baltimore. Legacies endure. We are building one — what’s yours?
Fun and enriching courses that support educational, personal, and professional growth for artists and arts lovers of all ages!
An exploration of the life and career of preeminent 19th Century Shakespearean Ira Aldridge,
created in conjunction with Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s production of Red Velvet by Lolita Chakrabarti, February 2–25, 2018
Hosted by our Founding Artistic Director Ian Gallanar and featuring conversations with Shakespeare practitioners from all around the globe.
Join us for our new play reading series beginning Fridays October 9th thru November 20th. Every other week, your favorite CSC artists will get together to present a play that we would never do (probably) as a zoom-paced event streamed live on Facebook.
Great theatre is powerful. Beautifully written stories—brought to life by people with passion and commitment—have the ability to make lasting impact on everyone involved.
Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is Maryland’s premier classics theatre. We are a community of actors, artisans and arts administrators whose vocation and great joy is to bring to life the greatest theatrical works ever written, and to see those works touch and transform everyone involved.
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!
