What’s New with Events

First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare -- In partnership with the Annapolis Shakespeare Company (ASC), St. John’s College is Maryland’s host location for the national tour of “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare” from November 1 through December 4. The first complete collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays was published in 1623, seven years after his death. Compiled by two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors, it preserves 36 of his plays. Without it, 18 of the Bard’s works would have been lost, including “Macbeth,” “Julius Caesar,” “Twelfth Night,” “The Tempest,” and “Antony and Cleopatra.”

What’s New with Attractions

Annapolis Shakespeare Company -- After two years of staging performances at its theatre in Annapolis’s Design District, Annapolis Shakespeare Company has signed a lease on a new location at 1804 West Street in Annapolis. The performing company officially opens the doors at its new facility on January 27, 2017 with a performance of the Thornton Wilder classic, “Our Town”. A high-tech version of “Alice in Wonderland” will open on March 10. Founding Artistic Director Sally Boyett says audiences will be walking into a performance/audience space that’s double the size of the former location. Overall, the 8,102-square-foot property is triple the size of its current 2,300-square-foot building.
