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!
