Silhouette Stages Update to its Patrons and Volunteers

To our loyal and supportive patrons and our talented and passionate volunteers: we miss you!  The Silhouette Stages Board of Directors has been working hard over the past few months to take an inward look at our organization to make improvements for the future.  While it was devastating to cancel our productions of Calendar Girls, Catch Me If You Can, Freaky Friday, and two Cabaret Nights, and to be without live theater for this long, we are using this down time to find ways to become a more inclusive and diverse organization that more accurately reflects the community in which we serve.  The stage may be dark, but our Board of Directors continues to discuss the implmentation of new policies and procedures that ensures Silhouette Stages is not only open to all, but actively anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-discrimatory in all respects in our organizational operations and our theatrical productions.  In addition, we are planning some exciting virtual content in the coming months, along with a new and improved website, logo, and ticketing system.  While it's been a while since you've heard from us, we remain hard at work!


As a reminder, Silhouette Stages is a 100% volunteer organization - we appreciate all the work that our volunteers do, especially during this time our Board of Directors who continue to put their heart and soul into bringing you the very best of the local performing arts at an affordable price.  Please keep an eye on our website and social media pages over the next few months for some very exciting announcements!

"Anything Goes" Wins Ruby Griffith Award for
Outstanding Achievement in a Musical


Columbia, MD - The British Players hosted its annual Ruby Griffith Award ceremony to honor outstanding achievement in community theater in and around Washington, D.C.  Silhouette Stages' March 2019 production of Anything Goes, directed by Conni Ross, won the award for Outstanding Achievement in a Musical.  This is the third Silhouette Stages production to win a Ruby Griffith Award (Next To Normal in 2016 and Young Frankenstein in 2017).


Anything Goes was an enormous undertaking for an all-volunteer community theater like Silhouette Stages.  With Choreography by Tina DeSimone, Musical Direction by Billy Georg, and Stage Management by Donna Hawkes, this talented cast, crew, and design team put together a highly entertaining musical.  Anything Goes was included in MD Theatre Guide's Top 5 Shows of the Week, in which they commented "Silhouette Stages’ production of ‘Anything Goes’ offers a quality production of a classic show, with compelling performances, excellent voices, and fine staging.


About the Award:  Early in 1964, Ruby Griffith became a founding member of the British Players (formerly known as The British Embassy Players) and became the group's Artistic Director. She produced and/or directed seven of the British Players' first fourteen productions. In honour of her contributions, the British Players instituted an annual award competition for All-Round Production Excellence. In 1991, two new achievement awards were added; Outstanding Achievement in a Musical and Outstanding Achievement in a Non-Musical. More information:  http://www.rubygriffith.org/
