The Otto M. Budig Theatre in the heart of Over-the-Rhine gives you:

  • The spotlight – Take center stage on your big day! The CSC’s Mainstage Theater can seat up to 250 guests and all eyes will be on you. Or, if you’d prefer, the Linnemann Family Lobby is available as well for a dramatic entrance down the Grand Staircase.

  • The views – Toast your nuptials with a reception boasting a unique view of OTR’s Washington Park through the floor-to-ceiling windows of CSC’s Bridgeland Performance Studio.

  • The theatrics – We specialize in drama! Do you want a custom projection of your monogram? Are you interested in set pieces to enhance the theme of your wedding? Have you ever dreamed of an enchanted garden party à la A Midsummer Night’s Dream? The CSC Production Team is ready to discuss every option to make your dreams a reality.

  • The exclusivity – Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is a unique and nontraditional wedding venue. You will be among a very small group of couples who have said "I DO" here!

  • The philanthropy – Say “I do” while doing good. A portion of your wedding rental is tax-deductible and will support CSC’s mission to bring Shakespeare and the Classics to life for all.
