Support the Arts in Howard County - See Shakespeare in Ellicott City

The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is again performing plays outside in the ruins at the Patapsco Female Institute in Ellicott City.

The plays are:

The Taming of the Shrew directed by Patrick Kilpatrick, on June 2, 3, 5, 11, 18, 23, 24 and July 1, 2, 8, 9.

King Lear directed by Ian Gallanar, on June 9, 10, 16, 17, 24, 25, 30 and July 7.

In addition to seeing the plays, there are other activities before each performance which are great fun, especially for kids.

And if you are hungry, the Friends of the Patapsco Female Institute are responsible for concessions and have arranged for Mangia Italian Grill to offer a range of delicious dinners and snacks, so you can pre-order your food. Here is the menu.

Or you can bring your own dinner and snacks.

Finally, the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company offers great deals for children, young adults, for Father's Day and for those who would like to see both performances.
