A Bright New Boise

In the bleak break room of a craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby not only for employment, but also to establish a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenage son, whom he gave up for adoption years earlier. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls confront an unyielding world through the prism of modern faith.

Spring 2017 Show Updates

Silent Sky Returns May 19-28

Silver Spring is pleased to bring back, by popular demand, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson. “Lift your soul and broaden your mind” with this “masterpiece of wonder, humor, and bittersweet discovery of the universe inside and outside of ourselves.” (Thanks for these kind words to DC Metro Theatre Arts and Maryland Theatre Guide.)

Silent Sky celebrates the joy of discovery as it explores the life of Henrietta Leavitt, a nearly forgotten giant of astronomy, and her coworkers and fellow voyagers on her trip to the stars, Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming.

One Man, Two Guvnors Opens June 30

Leta Hall2

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Leta Hall, a beloved member of our community, has passed away.  Leta was a mainstay performer on stages throughout the area, a devoted volunteer at Silver Spring Stage, a moving force behind the WATCH Awards, and a radiant presence in the lives of all those who knew her. She will be truly and deeply missed.

To remember Leta, in lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.org/) or Silver Spring Stage (http://www.ssstage.org/donate/).
