2 HUGE SUMMER SHOWS HIT THE MEADOW!

Summer with BSF is here! If you've only seen us perform in our indoor space, you're in for a treat. We "summer" in this pastoral green spread (yes, in the heart of Baltimore) in the Meadow at the Johns Hopkins Evergreen Museum & Library at 4545 N. Charles St. So bring your lawn chairs, your blankets, your picnics, your wine... your friends, your neighbors, your countrymen, your kids (free under 10!)... and come see why City Paper called it "the handsomest theatre space in Baltimore."

And for kids and students, there's even more going down in the Meadow...
Summer with Shakespeare is back in July and August with three mega-cool,week-long camp sessions, each culminating in a spectacular student performance... AND in August, we're holding our first stage combat class with acclaimed local fight choreographer Brad Norris. See below or go here for details

TWELFTH NIGHT
Shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian wash up on the shores of Illyria, and thus begins one of Shakespeare's greatest comic triumphs - a story of mistaken identities, mistaken affections, and unmistakable love.
Opens Friday, July 15th

#BSF12Night

 

JULIUS CAESAR
The action begins in 44 BC... and is as fresh and relevant today as ever. Shakespeare's remarkable tragedy is a struggle for the soul of a Republic: what it stands for, who it stands for, and what it costs to preserve it.

THE STRAND THEATER ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF A NEW HOME!

 


Following a two-year search for a permanent space and a concerted effort to secure funding, the Strand Theater Company is happy to announce

WE HAVE A NEW HOME!!!

The Strand is moving to the historic Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood, where a former bank building has just the right attributes to become a home for our thriving company! We look forward to being a part of this vibrant and supportive community, and continuing our mission of amplifying women's voices on stage and off!

The Strand is grateful for the generous support of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street (Richard Marsiglia - President of the Board and Regina Lansinger - Director), and Dian Combs in making this move possible, and to every donor and community member, who played a part in the effort by helping us with their contributions, expertise, and encouragement! Thank you!

We cannot wait to celebrate with you, as the new Strand Theater opens to the public later this year, and unveils its 9th consecutive season!

Please stay tuned!
