Silver Spring Stage is committed to ensuring your peace of mind while attending our performances. To ensure the health and safety of artists, volunteers, and patrons we actively monitor developments related to COVID-19 and recommendations from local, state, and CDC officials.

As of August 8, 2021, Silver Spring Stage requires that patrons and volunteers 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. Masks will also be required for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. Our artists are all vaccinated and wear masks while not on stage.

Guests who are exempt from vaccination (including children under 12, people with certain medical conditions preventing vaccination, or those with closely held religious beliefs that prevent vaccination) must provide results of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time.

Our policies will continue to be updated as circumstances require.
