The Organization

“Love this theater. It is small and intimate and the quality of the plays that I have seen so far are testament to their passion for theater.”
Trip Advisor review by David B 9/15/2015

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, charitable/educational organization.

We’re governed by a set of Bylaws. [PDF]

Our business practices are defined in more detail in our Organization Manual [PDF] which is a continual work in progress. Share suggestions with ASGT’s Governance Committee at any time by e-mailing the Board President.
