PFI Historic Park

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company-In-The-Ruins
PFI Historic Park

Join us for Shakespeare under the stars in our summer home in Ellicott City. In the summer, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company performs outdoors at the PFI Historic Park in Howard County, Md. The park, home to the ruins of a 19th-century girls’ school, is located on a picturesque hillside above Ellicott City’s historic Main Street. Bring a picnic, a bottle of wine, and your whole family. Use our chairs or your blanket. Feel free to wander in the ruins and on the well-landscaped grounds.

Address: 3655 Church Rd, Ellicott City, MD 21043

All tickets are for general admission seating except for reserved tables or preferred seating for ‘Friends of CSC.’ The ticket tent and the gates will open 90 minutes before the performance for picnics, family-friendly activities. The ticket tent is open only on performance dates; all advance ticketing is handled online or through our Box Office in Baltimore. Call 410-244-8570 or email
