What should I know before attending a show at ASGT?
We’re located at 143 Compromise Street, Annapolis, MD 21401—just steps from Annapolis City Dock.
Yes, ASGT is an outdoor theatre—our stage and seating are outside under the stars. While other theatres in the Baltimore-Annapolis area occasionally present outdoor shows, all ASGT productions are presented in our unique outdoor space during the summer months only.
For your comfort, we recommend you come prepared for the weather (weather.com) and seasonal temperatures. Some patrons choose to bring:
- handheld fans
- bug spray
- light rain jackets
- seat cushions
For fun, here’s an article by Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun about outdoor theatre in the area, including at ASGT!
