To provide opportunities for the community to learn about and experience live theatre under the stars.
An outdoor community theatre in Maryland's capital city, ASGT produces musicals (featuring live music) every summer at our historic property. Our building dates to about 1800 and we own and maintain it ourselves it's rustic, charming, challenging, intimate, and magical.
Our location in the heart of Annapolis' downtown scene and our summertime schedule lend themselves to fun, upbeat entertainment. Enjoying dinner at one of our city's many fine restaurants and a show at ASGT is the perfect way to spend a summer evening in Annapolis.
ASGT is led by a volunteer Board of Directors. With no paid staff, we rely on the support of our patrons, donors, and countless volunteer actors, tech & backstage crew, ushers, box office staff, and other volunteers from our local community to present live "theatre under the stars" each summer.
An outdoor community theatre led by volunteers, Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre produces musical theatre (featuring live music) in a unique, intimate setting in historic Annapolis every summer. Founded in 1966, ASGT celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016.
