Mission

Baltimore-based Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (CSC) is dedicated to bringing the plays of Shakespeare and other classic playwrights into the lives of as many people as possible in ways that are personally meaningful, educationally inspiring, and theatrically compelling. We pursue artistic excellence, ensure accessibility, and promote regional awareness of classic theatre. Our mission is to engage our communities in the exploration of what makes Shakespeare so timeless and relevant while deepening the connection between audience and artist.

Artistic Season

The artistic season is the performance and production portion of our program budget. CSC produces 5-7 professional productions on our main stage in Baltimore City and 1-2 productions at our outdoor venue, the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in Ellicott City, thanks to a partnership with Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks. We also produce, crossing program lines, a student matinee production of ROMEO AND JULIET each spring. We are expanding this in the 2017-2018 season to include matinee performances (for students and other constituencies) of our main stage productions.

Population(s) Served
Adults

CSC's education program served more than 10,000 students and their teachers during the 2015-2016 academic season, including nearly 7,000 alone through our annual ROMEO AND JULIET student matinee program. Our in-school residency and workshop programs continue to grow, serving approximately 2,000 students and their teachers in the same time period. Our summer programs, primarily taking place in Howard County but with plans to expand our offerings in Baltimore City, currently reach about 100 children with extra-curricular Shakespeare education activities.

In addition to our youth-focused programs, we are also expanding our reach into our communities through festivals (like BOPA's Light City Baltimore, the Baltimore Book Festival, the Annapolis Book Festival, etc.) and partnerships with local institutions (Walters Art Gallery, the Baltimore Musicales, the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, etc.). With the opening of our new space, The Studio at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, we anticipate expanding our class offerings to include professional artist development, teacher development, and general professional development opportunities for people in the workforce. Lastly, we anticipate adding what we call a Community Corps which would enable groups of adults from a specific community to come together and produce their own production of a Shakespeare play, under the guidance of one or more of CSC's trained teaching artists.
