Colonial Players is located on East St, one half block east of State Circle.

Parking

Parking for the theater is easiest at the large well-lit state State Garage on Calvert Street near St. John’s College, which is open and free of charge from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Monday – Thursday nights and all weekends from 6:00 p.m. Friday night to 6:00 a.m. Monday. (Note: the garage is closed on Monday evenings during Legislative Session.)

In addition to the State Garage, there are two public garages within walking distance: the Gotts Court Garage at West and Calvert Streets and the Hillman Garage between Duke of Gloucester and Main Streets.

Parking on the streets near the theater is extremely limited, moreso when the State Legislature is in session (January – April). Most street parking has hour restrictions that will not accommodate viewing a theater performance.
