We first went here 2 years ago to their December production of A Christmas Carol & have been fans ever since. We've brought our boys to, almost, every play. They are now 13 & 14. They love it. The cast is stellar. There's no bad...More

We have seen several plays by CSC, and are never disappointed! Shakespeare in the Ruins in Ellicott City is a repeated favorite for bringing family and picnicking, and the downtown theater is nice too. The performers are very talented and professional. We can't afford to...More

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is a terrific theater company with Shakespeare at its core, though not all shows are from the Bard. The others tend to be period pieces and the Shakespeare performances are sometimes reinterpreted in another style. Often there is a bit of music...More

I came to see Richard III, one of many plays I plan to see. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is right off Calvert St and it's very easy to find. There are two parking garages barely a block away (Water Street garage and Arrow parking garage)...More

Who'd've thought that Baltimore would have its very own Shakespeare Theater Company? The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company Theater is a great new find. It's tucked into a cleverly renovated bank building with seating surrounding a jutting stage. It doesn't look like there are too many bad...More
