Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts welcomes Compass Rose as they proudly announce their return to the stage! The new theater location in Maryland Hall’s room 308 is being transformed into an intimate performance space where audiences can once again enjoy live professional productions. 

“We have emerged from our Covid cocoon and will offer three shows for our 2022-2023 season, our eleventh year of producing professional theater in Annapolis,’ says the company’s founder and Artistic Director, Lucinda Merry-Browne.

Please join Compass Rose and Maryland Hall for an opening reception on November 19, 2022, from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M.  Complimentary wine and cheese will be served in the Community Room.  Our celebration will include an information session, a tour of our space, and a short performance. 

Jackie Coleman, Maryland Hall’s newly appointed Executive Director, is proud to welcome the Compass Rose Theater into the building. “This partnership will enrich the existing arts programming at Maryland Hall by bringing theatre into the building. We are eagerly looking forward to seeing what Compass Rose brings to the community,” she says.

Compass Rose Theater is a non-profit professional teaching theater company. We believe that diversity and inclusion enrich our creativity and broaden our world.  At our core are our devotion and unwavering commitment to producing plays of superb quality and richness, hiring accomplished professional artists as well as talented students for our productions.  As the compass rose on a nautical map guides the mariner, Compass Rose Theater charts a course toward plays that not only entertain but offer a theater experience that lifts us up and transcends the ordinary, leaving us with a better understanding of the world and ourselves.

Dedicated to Art for All, Maryland Hall is the region’s cultural core, convening and engaging all people in arts and experiences that strengthen community. Maryland Hall continues to welcome, connect, and enrich all with inspiring arts experiences.

Maryland Hall and the Compass Rose Theater both share the anticipation of new beginnings in this special partnership.
