Masking for Audiences to Continue through “Closer”

Silver Spring Stage requires that patrons and volunteers, including our artists and staff, present a photo ID and show proof of vaccination—a physical or digital copy of a vaccination card — at the time of entering the theater. We are also continuing to require masks for all audience members through the closing of Closer on May 21, at which time we will reassess the situation. Actors onstage will be unmasked during the performance and masking during rehearsals is recommended, but not required, of all members of the production team. This is consistent with current practice in all live theater venues in the DC area.
