Everyone deserves access to art.
Mobile Unit, an exciting new initiative of Baltimore Center Stage, that breaks down the walls of conventional theater spaces by taking high-quality theater to economically, culturally and geographically diverse communities across the Baltimore area, including homeless, elderly, incarcerated. The project launched in spring 2017 following a successful pilot project in 2016.
With a minimalist design and a compact cast of five playing all the parts, the Mobile Unit is a streamlined and nimble production that travels throughout the Baltimore area. Armed with a good story, costumes and minimal props, professional actors of the Mobile Unit bring both classic and contemporary works to life for a variety of communities, wherever they are. The audiences’ unlimited imagination is at the center of the action in the intimate comfort of community cafeterias, recreation rooms, gyms, or lobbies.
It's theater up close and personal for all people regardless of education or class, furthering Baltimore Center Stage’s mission of Access for All.
This season from our Mobile Unit:
By William Shakespeare
5 performances in the Third Space!
Shipwrecked and separated in a strange new land, identical twins Viola and Sebastian quickly find themselves entwined in a madcap world of disguises and mistaken identities, love triangles and all-night parties, secrets and lies and yellow stockings. In Mobile Twelfth Night, only five actors bring to life Shakespeare’s topsy-turviest romp—where the smallest choice has unexpected consequences, from heartbreaking to hilarious. (But don’t worry: what happens in Illyria, stays in Illyria!)
All tickets $25.*
*Membership discounts not applicable to Third Space or Mobile Unit tickets.
Approximate runtime is 85 minutes. There will be no intermission.
