Happy Holidays from everyone at Silver Spring Stage!

The Board of Directors and all of our volunteers, wish you and all those you care for a happy and healthy holiday season and all good things in 2022.

This has been a difficult year for everyone, but we ended on a high note with a successful live and in-person production of A Christmas Story by Philip Grecian. Though COVID shortened its run, the joy it brought will carry us into 2022. If you missed the show and crave a taste of our work, try our radio play version of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, created for the 2020 holiday season and available again this year on our YouTube channel.

Before we leave the struggles of 2021 behind us, we want to celebrate a major accomplishment. All new seating! We have many people to thank for this, among them Seth Ghitelman, Leigh Rawls, and Ian Claar who developed and managed the project to completion. We are also grateful for a generous grant from the Nora Roberts Foundation and for sizeable donations from several long-time donors who wish to remain anonymous but who helped make this dream come true. Of course, many others—too many to name—helped support and fund the project over the past two years. We are grateful to every one of them. We are also grateful to all of you for sticking with us during the pandemic. This New Year’s Eve, we’ll be raising a glass to more great theater at the Stage in 2022.

Our year-end fundraiser continues through the end of January. Please consider a generous donation today.



Silver Spring Stage is committed to ensuring your peace of mind while attending our performances. To protect 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 are required for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. Our artists are all vaccinated and wear masks while not on stage.

For A Christmas Story, guests who are under age 18 must show a vaccination card if they have one, if they do not have one, they must answer several screening questions before entering the building. Guests who are exempt from vaccination (children under 5, people with certain medical conditions preventing vaccination, or those with closely held religious beliefs that prevent vaccination) must provide written proof of exemption and answer several screening questions.

Our policies will continue to be updated as circumstances require.
