The word ‘classic’, when attached to the American theatre, is often associated with the plays and literature you didn’t enjoy in your high school English class. Charm City Classics Company seeks to redefine the word ‘classic’ in regard to the theatre, whether that be well-known or underappreciated works of a time long ago, more contemporary plays that have redefined the theatrical landscape, or the development of new work that will create the classics of tomorrow.

First, we are going to program a season of plays and events that run the gamut of theatrical experiences, filled with music, laughter, love, and adventure. We can't tell you quite what those shows are just yet, but we can tell you that you'll see some playwrights and stories you already love, some you might see through a brand new lens, and a season where plays are constantly in conversation with each other, like putting shows in rotating repertory!

Next, we are going to add some fantastic artists. We're already working with some of the best playwrights (whether that be ever or working today), so all we have to do is assemble a team of creatives for each project that will honor the words of the writer when bringing these stories to life.

Finally, once we've rehearsed and rehearsed, we add YOU! You'll visit our distinct company of artists in our unorthodox and exciting little space and we're pretty sure you'll have a great time with us. Then we'll see you again and again. 

We need your help to make this dream a reality. The money we raise here will help fund production budgets (we keep those low, but every show needs some things), marketing & publicity, and infrastructure & technology costs.

We are very fortunate to be partnering with the bar Old Major in Baltimore's Pigtown neighborhood, who is allowing us to use their venue, but we still need some more financial assistance to produce our season. In order to bring incredible theatre to the City of Baltimore, join this team of actors, directors, writers, designers, bartenders, and thrillseekers in bringing a new kind of classic theatre to the Charm City.

Risks and challenges

Producing fresh and relevant classic theatre as a brand new company is no easy task, but we know that we are up to the challenge.
