Volunteers are such an important part of what we do, and of course, our ushers see the show for FREE! All volunteers must be 16 years of age and come with a willingness to lend a hand.

PERFORMANCE USHER: This is the most common volunteer option. Help us welcome in our patrons to our Downtown Theatre on Calvert Street. Duties for the downtown location include but are not limited to scanning tickets, showing patrons to their seats, handing out parking vouchers and wine slips, and greeting our patrons as they arrive.

About Chesapeake Shakespeare Company

Location:

7 South Calvert Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, US

Mission Statement

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company brings great classic theatre to Baltimore, Howard County, the state of Maryland, and beyond. We offer performances of Shakespeare and other plays of classic stature that are unforgettable and create experiences that are engaging and exciting, challenging and innovative. We perform without curtains and without barriers in settings that are both beautiful and informal and we’re proud to bring a Baltimore flavor to our work. As a dynamic educational resource, we introduce Shakespeare to schoolchildren with vigorous, relevant programming. We bring delight and enlightenment to audiences new and old and we invite our patrons, our students, and our neighbors to become part of our family and part of the creative collaboration that generates powerful, magical theatre and a more purposeful, more engaged, and more connected community

Description

Our work strives to make Shakespeare and other classics accessible and enjoyable to both lovers of Shakespeare and to those who have not yet found a reason to like Shakespeare. Our lively and innovative approach to the performance and teaching of Shakespeare is at the center of all we do. Our theater, our classroom spaces and our outdoor performance area are all designed to facilitate CSC's unique approach. Our thrust stage and three audience levels in our unique indoor theater allows the audience to be an active and highly visible participant in CSC performances. The space enforces a vertical set design, but our designers employ enormous creativity and variety within those constraints. Our period costumes are a technical hallmark, exhibiting historical research, craftsmanship, and theatrical flair.
