Silver Spring Stage Subscription Information

Silver Spring Stage is excited to offer subscriptions for our 51st season! We renew our pledge to offer you the best of what you like about the Stage – an intimate theater, top quality plays, and affordable prices – and added what you want to see – plays that are smart and have heart. We will give you the best of downtown theater without downtown theater ticket prices.

You get to choose the plays you want to see. You pick your own plan from 3 to 7 plays and save over regular ticket prices. The benefits are big: first choice of dates and seats, exchange your tickets anytime you want, get your tickets in advance so no wait at the box office, free tickets to our One-Act Play Festival or our holiday show and discounts on special presentations. See a whole season of plays for one ticket at the Kennedy Center!

Silver Spring Stage has not raised its subscription prices this year, so the great deal you got last year stays the same! By purchasing a subscription, you will save as much as 30% on single tickets. As we did last year, we are offering you the choice of free tickets to our 2018 One Act Festival or our holiday show Season of Light: A Winter Fairytale when you purchase a 7-play package.

Our New Season

The Stage is offering you a vibrant selection of plays, including four area community theater premieres. The season contains works by the country’s most dynamic award-winning contemporary playwrights and one of the 20th century’s greatest. We have one production that is too soon to announce, but expect a delightful comedy of wit and manners. We continue to present four weekends with Friday and Saturday evenings and two Sunday matinees for each full-length play and two weekends for our special presentations. Here is the season with dates and brief descriptions of the shows.
