Mission: The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory is dedicated to bringing the works of William Shakespeare to life for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. In Shakespeare's time (1564-1616), the theater was accessible to everyone, and The Factory prides itself on continuing that tradition by presenting professional quality work at affordable prices.
Factory productions bring Shakespeare's works to life in a way that is accessible to modern audiences without compromising the cornerstone of their artistic and literary merit-Shakespeare's original language. The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory is built on a love of language, and productions are designed to not only help audiences understand Shakespeare's words, but to love them, too.
The Shakespeare Factory maintains 501(c)3 non profit status as a member fund of The Community Foundation Of Carroll County.
