About Baltimore Center Stage

Designated the State Theater of Maryland in 1978, Baltimore Center Stage provides the highest quality theater and programming for youth, families, and all members of our community under the leadership of Artistic Director Stephanie Ybarra. Each year the theater produces and presents a slate of programming in all theatrical forms to specifically serve the City of Baltimore. Programming includes: four to six original full-length productions by primarily playwrights of color, monthly civic gatherings that seek to catalyze positive change within our city’s neighborhoods and communities while uplifting Baltimore’s local artists, and a longstanding collection of learning programs that serve primarily Title 1 schools and/or students with disabilities. Baltimore Center Stage’s programming not only provides city residents an outlet of joy and artistic experience, but also provides a gathering space to amplify needs, express themselves, and organize community. In the coming year, the theater will have three world-premiere plays, a variety of presented performance pieces from across the nation, continuous civic performances, lobby concerts, and multiple opportunities for other organizations to take center stage.
