Covid-19 Update – March 21, 2020
Extended Close and Schedule Changes
The board of Silver Spring Stage is continuing to monitor the Covid-19 epidemic and the advice of federal, state, and local health officials.
To protect our casts and volunteers, we are extending the close our building through the end of April. We are working on rescheduling Lobby Hero and Pride and Prejudice and will post an update as soon as we have a clear plan for those shows.
We have moved our production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to October 30 – November 21 as part of our 2020-2021 season (pending license approval). Auditions for the show will be rescheduled.
As previously announced, to give ourselves flexibility in scheduling, we have cancelled this year’s One-Act Play Festival. Playwrights who have submitted for the festival will be contacted soon about our plans going forward.
We will announce the dates for the remaining productions in the 2019-20 season once we have determined it is reasonable to do so. Please monitor our social media accounts or check back here for later updates.
Patrons who have tickets for our upcoming shows will be contacted as necessary when our schedule is clear.
These decisions are difficult and will strain our typically tight budget. If you can give an additional donation to help us through this period of uncertainty, it would be much appreciated. Please click the Donate button at the top of this page to do what you can.
Update regarding Call for Director Proposals
Silver Spring Stage is continuing to manage plans for our current productions and future season to comply with the safety measures put in place by the State of Maryland to ensure the safety of our community. We have therefore extended the deadline for submissions to prospective directors for our 2020-2021 season until 5pm on Saturday, April 18th with the date and location (likely virtual) for director interviews to be determined.
