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


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.
