In 2017, New Spire Arts contracted Ziger/Snead Architects to design a new performing arts center at 15 West Patrick Street in historic downtown Frederick.

Construction soon began, breathing new life into an iconic downtown building – and enhancing Frederick’s growing Theatre District. After a sellout Grand Opening weekend in January, 2019 New Spire Stages is officially open for business!

New Spire Stages features a flexible black box theatre that seats up to 275 people and a gorgeously renovated lobby that doubles as a community gathering space. Contact us today about renting the space, or join us for a show!
