The Organization

New to ASGT? You may wish to begin on the About Us page.

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

We are governed by a set of Bylaws. They can be found beginning on page 9 of our Organization Manual [PDF] which defines our business practices in more detail and is a continual work in progress. Suggestions may be shared with ASGT’s Governance Committee at any time by e-mailing the Board President.

Visit our History page to learn the history of the organization and theatre building.
