Baltimore Shakespeare Factory

About This Show

Show Info: Our Mission Link: The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory (BSF) is a nonprofit organization that entertains, educates, and enriches the Baltimore community by creating performances that inspire audiences with the wonder of William Shakespeare’s plays and language. In order to achieve this mission, BSF has the following strategic priorities: To produce the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries by re-creating, as closely as possible, the staging conditions of Shakespeare’s time, such as doubling, cross-gender casting, and the use of universal lighting so interaction can occur between the audience and the actors To revive works written in the Elizabethan/Jacobean period that have become overshadowed in our time by Shakespeare To present these works with unparalleled quality of language, intent, and focus so that the audience effortlessly understands each word and the full spectrum of meaning in these masterpieces To obtain the funding to produce our two summer shows to be enjoyed free of charge by all who wish to see them To perform one production of Shakespeare’s work each season in original pronunciation (OP), the accent of 16th-century England, so Baltimore audiences can experience these works as the audiences of Shakespeare’s time would have heard them To maintain a vibrant education program that consists of summer camps, children’s troupes, lectures, and workshops and classes for people of all ages.
