The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s summer season is underway in Ellicott City, MD (a historic town about twenty minutes from Baltimore and DC). This summer, CSC presents Antony & Cleopatra (directed by Ralph Alan Cohen, co-found of The American Shakespeare Center) and The Taming of the Shrew (directed by CSC’s founding artistic director, Ian Gallanar).
For years, CSC has offered a program called "Extended Versions," pre-show talks and presentations where audience members have an opportunity to engage with actors, directors, and scholars. We are very pleased to announce that Stephen Booth, professor emeritus at UC-Berkeley, will be speaking on Friday, June 21at 7 pm at the Patapsco Female Institute (the location of our outdoor theatre) accompanied by Sarah Enloe, Director of Education at the American Shakespeare Center. The talk is included in our regular ticket price.
