Baltimore County, MD — Children’s Playhouse of Maryland (CPM), in residence at CCBC Essex, proudly presents I Hate Shakespeare. This play features an ensemble cast of 10 student actors from Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Harford County.

The play I Hate Shakespeare will be performed Oct. 27, 28 and Nov. 3, 4 at 1 p.m., with an additional sensory friendly show on Nov. 3 at 4:30 p.m. Performances are held in the CCBC Essex Administration Building Lecture Hall located near parking lot 4, a wheelchair-accessible facility.
