The Maryland Shakespeare Players have been a performance group at this university since 2007. The organization meets every Wednesday to discuss William Shakespeare, and engage in shenanigans and merriment.

Every semester, the players perform a piece by Shakespeare or an influenced playwright. The show is completely student run, and the director is voted upon as part of the board. The director then chooses his cast and crew, rehearsals commence throughout the semester.

The group is currently rehearsing Shakespeare’s Hamlet and at the end of the semester, the players will perform in Stamp’s Grand Ballroom Lounge and Atrium. All shows are free to the public.
