The Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre (ASGT) is entering its 50th season and they are celebrating with the public with three different musicals through September 6!

ASGT is an outdoor community theater, run only by volunteers, that puts on three musicals each summer on the historic site formerly known as Shaw’s Blacksmith Shop, located at 143 Compromise Street. The space dates back to about 1800.

Seeing a show is a perfect night out with friends or family at the end of a day of boating. The theater is located across the street from the city dock, making it easy to get there by boat — call the Harbormaster at 410-263-1183 in advance to make a reservation for transient space. Once you have docked, it is just a quick five minute walk to the theater. The Annapolis Yacht Basin is slightly further away but still a very viable option — call 410-263-3544 to reserve a slip.

Dock early in the afternoon and participate in the ASGT Eats & Seats program, which allows you to receive ten percent off your dining bill at participating restaurants with your theater ticket stub.

The musical “Catch Me If You Can” will run through July 25.  “Catch Me If You Can” is based upon the 2002 film by the same name. It is a high energy musical with lots of singing and dancing.

Shows are performed Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8:30 p.m.  There are a few select Wednesday performances during the run. Tickets for each performance are $23.00 and can be purchased online at or at the ASGT box office on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. The theater is outdoors and open air, so there is a rain-out policy; if a performance is rained out, you can reschedule your tickets for another show in the future, request a refund, or claim your purchased tickets as a tax-deductible donation.

The ASGT also houses a musical theater workshop for teens each summer, culminating in a Broadway-style musical revue put on by the participating teenagers.
