Chesapeake Shakespeare Theater Tour
October 2, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
1 AIA/CES credit available
Please join us for a tour of the new Chesapeake Shakespeare Theater located in the landmark 1885 Mercantile Trust and Deposit Company building followed by a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With adaptive reuse design by Baltimore architecture firm Cho Benn Holback + Associates and construction by Southway Builders, the 20,000 square foot building is now an unforgettable, intimate 250-seat theater. The Romanesque-revival former bank features striking architectural details, including beautiful carved stone, arched windows, and an ornate coffered ceiling. The new performance space is designed to be a modern Globe Theater that combines the intimacy of a traditional Elizabethan playhouse with contemporary design and function.
The tour will be followed by a complimentary dinner and drinks for those staying for the show.
