About the Ticket Supplier: Chesapeake Shakespeare Company

The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is one of the fastest growing classics theaters in the United States.

Built on a model that encourages collaboration and long-term relationships with artists, CSC has built the foundation for a healthy, vibrant organization that is growing into a regional center of energy and excellence. Their ambition is to “change the way people think about Shakespeare.”
