Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
Seeing a performance at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company will be sure to entertain your group with amazing performances and delightful plays. Visitors of all ages will enjoy productions that are energetic, innovative, and educational as well as beautifully designed.
The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company does performances in two locations. During the winter months, the productions are done at the new Baltimore Theater. In the summer, visitors can enjoy the performances outdoors at the PFI Historic Park where guests can enjoy breathtaking views as they watch the production.
The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company transformed a 19th-century historical landmark into an intimate theater. Located in downtown Baltimore, the theater was originally known as the Mercantile Deposit and Trust Company Bank Building. When you visit the venue, you will see the original columns and vault doors, the ornately decorated ceiling and a catwalk that was used by bank guards who patrolled the Trust’s perimeter.
The summer home for the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is at the PFI Historic Park. Visitors can bring a picnic or a bottle of wine and sit under the stars during the production. The reinforced stone ruins were part of a 19th-century girls’ school and it is here that the productions are performed. The ruins serve to highlight and engage the audience in an antique, historic atmosphere while viewing an equally historic play.
The Chesapeake Shakespeare is known for its amazing Shakespeare productions. Visitors may see shows including Titus Andronicus, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet or the special events that the theater hosts throughout the year.
