Our Mission: To provide opportunities for the community to learn about and experience live theatre under the stars. ASGT is an outdoor community theatre led by volunteers, presenting musical theatre (featuring live music) in an intimate setting in historic Annapolis. While other theatres in the Baltimore-Annapolis area occasionally present outdoor shows, all ASGT productions are presented in our unique outdoor space during the summer months only. Each performance season includes three musicals chosen to entertain and delight you. For a fun, magical, unique way to experience downtown Annapolis, join us next summer!
An outdoor community theatre in Maryland’s capital city, ASGT produces musicals (featuring live music) every summer at our historic property. Our building dates to about 1800 and we own and maintain it ourselves-it’s rustic, charming, challenging, intimate, and magical.
Our location in the heart of Annapolis’ downtown scene and our summertime schedule lend themselves to productions that are sometimes provocative but always engaging and entertaining. Enjoying dinner at one of our city’s many fine restaurants and a show at ASGT is the perfect way to spend a summer evening in Annapolis.
ASGT is led by a volunteer Board of Directors. With no paid staff, we rely on the support of our patrons, donors, and countless volunteer actors, tech & backstage crew, ushers, box office staff, and other volunteers from our community to present live "theatre under the stars" each summer.
What do we mean by "our community"? Community is a feeling, not a name or location. If you enjoy our performances as a patron, contribute financially, or have ever participated on- or off-stage at ASGT (or loved and supported people who have), you are part of ASGT’s community. With a storied 54-year history as the only dedicated outdoor summer theatre in Maryland’s capital city, ASGT’s community is broad and diverse. Each and every friend and fan is appreciated and welcomed.
