Silver Spring Stage stands with the black members of our community in the fight for equality and justice. The brutal murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others are a result of systemic racism in our society.

Theatre exists in part to provoke conversation and shine a light on the stories that otherwise remain untold. We recognize the need for us to do the work to bring more black voices, and other voices of color, to the conversation about how we make theatre in our community.

We are listening.

Black lives matter, now and always.

If you would like to get involved with Silver Spring Stage and/or share your thoughts and feelings with us, you can reach us via social media or at contact@ssstage.org.



Covid-19 Update – May 29, 2020

Extended Closure 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, volunteers, and patrons, we are extending our building closure indefinitely. We will return when we are confident in our ability to ensure the safety of everyone who enters our space. This decision has led us to the sad decision to cancel our production of Pride and Prejudice. We wish to thank all of the artists who had already given so much of their time and talents to creating the production

We are grateful to announce we had a record-breaking number of directors submit proposals for the remaining shows planned next season. We have confirmed commitments from directors, each of whom, has embraced the challenge of the uncertain future with open and creative arms. The remaining shows planned for next season–including Lobby Hero and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time–have been moved to a TBD status and we invite you to please monitor our social media accounts or check back here for later updates about scheduling.

As previously announced, we have cancelled this year’s One-Act Play Festival to give ourselves flexibility in scheduling. Playwrights who have submitted for the festival will be contacted about our plans going forward.

Patrons who have tickets for the postponed and cancelled shows should have been contacted by email. If you have not been contacted please email the box office at boxoffice@ssstage.org 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 help us with 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.
