Elvis & Nixon
Friday - Sunday July 22 - 24

Starring  Michael Shannon & Kevin Spacey

 

On a December morning in 1970, the King of Rock 'n Roll showed up on the lawn of the White House to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Nixon. Starring Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley and two-time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey as Richard Nixon, comes the untold true story behind this revealing, yet humorous moment in the Oval Office forever immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.

Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Twister) was so smitten by this humorous moment in American history, that he planned to make his directorial debut with it.  However, he ended up sharing a screenplay credit Hanala and Joey Sagal, and the film was directed by Liza Johnson.

Inspired by a conversation about Elvis' badge at Cassian Elwes' Christmas party, Hanala Sagal, Elvis & Nixon co-screenwriter and co-executive producer, wrote a 90-page script with her now ex-husband, Joey Sagal. After their script was written, Cary Elwes asked to collaborate on the screenplay and to direct the film.

Early on, the film was expected to be  'micro-budget' film and co-writer, Joey Sagal was going to fill the role of Elvis.  When the budget expanded, Eric Bana was cast to portray Elvis, and Joey then played Elvis Impersonator, Joe King.  Bana then dropped out, and the role went to Michael Shannon.

Documentary Stars David Matthews Who Will Also Be Appearing at This Screening

 

ASPIE SEEKS LOVE follows a fearless outsider who has been searching for love longer than many of us have been alive. David Matthews has spent the past twenty years posting personal ad fliers to telephone poles seeking love – fliers that double as art pieces featuring witty, humorous prose, pop culture references, and suave photos of the artist.

David wasn’t diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome until age forty-one, at which point his entire life changed, including his strategy for winning the love of women and achieving his artistic dreams.

This documentary has been all over the country, competing in film festivals both local and national.  It has won a number of awards including 'Best Documentary Feature Film' at Cinequest Film Festival, 'Best Documentary Feature Film' at Omaha Film Festival and a 'Special Jury Mention' at Northside Film Festival.


David will be appearing at this screening and will make a brief introduction prior to showtime,  We will then be available for a Q & A session afterward.  Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Parents In Toto, an Autism Resource Center on Main Street in Zelienople, and Vocational and Psychological Services in New Castle.

Assisted Living: The Musical
Saturday, August 13 Only!  2 Shows at 2pm & 7pm
The Musical Comedy about How the Older Half Lives!
 
Everything Granny told you about assisted living? Forget it!

From early retirement right up to....well......you know, 21st Century seniors are partying like it's 1969. Imagine: no work, no pregnancy and a full array of Medicare-subsidized pharmaceuticals.  They are partying at Pelican Roost, the full-service retirement community that is home to the 18 different characters played by the show's two actors. 

Assisted Living: The Musical
® is not just for old people anymore than Oklahoma! is just for cowboys, Gypsy is for Romanians, or Rent is for people who don't own their own homes.  Assisted Living: The Musical® is for everyone who is aging, or 
hopes to someday. You'll see your parents, your friends and maybe some of yourself in any one or more of these hilarious characters!
Assisted Living: The Musical® is a 75-minute vaudeville-style revue. The show's host couple fondly recalls Pelican Roost, and the colorful residents that sing, dance, revel and kvetch, celebrate and bloviate their way through later life.

Seriously, with songs like, Help, I've Fallen for You (and I Can't Get Up) and I Lost My Dentures on Steak Night Blues, how can you possibly go wrong?! Don't miss this sensational send-up of retirement center living that The San Francisco Examiner calls, "Wild and Wickedly Funny", and KGO Radio describes as, "A Laugh Riot".

Shenanigans!
Saturday, August 20 Only!  2 Shows at 2pm & 8pm
Comedy. Magic. Comedy.  Juggling.  Comedy.  Music. Comedy.  Shenanigans.
 
Both Eric Buss (right) and Ivan Pecel (below) have made individual stops at The Strand.  Eric's bizarre combination of magic, inventive gadgets, stunts and comedy had audiences in hysterics and awe.  The 'Comedy Imaginator' stunned audiences with his off-the-wall use of every day household items in pursuit of his high-energy chicanery.

Ivan Pecel was incredible at his ability to 'make juggling tolerable', not just with his inhuman juggling skills, but with his lightning wit and interactive antics.

Both have appeared all over TV and the web with shows like America's Got Talent, Late Night, The Late Show, The Tonight Show and many, many more. With their individual acts, they nearly set The Strand on fire.   Imagine, if you will, the two of them together.  In the same place.  At the same time.  Along with an unhinged DJ.  That is the formula for SHENANIGANS, and yes, we have exercised the poor judgment to bring this frantic show to The Strand, which combines, magic, comedy, juggling, stunts and music.  Altogether, these guys will blow your mind and tickle your funny bone in this show filled with comedy, cameos, magic, and mischief.  It's FAMILY-FRIENDLY FUN for everyone! It's like........shenanigans!

Cash & Cline: A Classic Country Tribute
Saturday Only!  October 8  2pm & 8pm

Terry Lee Goffee and Josie Waverly Return with Their Stirring Tributes to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline

 

Terry Lee Goffee's interpretation of Johnny Cash is almost as legendary as The Man in Black, himself. Joined by fellow artist Josie Waverly, whose Patsy Cline tribute has won enormous praise as well, when the two appear together, it's Classic Country Magic!

The two brought their amazing duel tribute to The Strand last year and sold out both shows. Audiences raved at the quality and vitality of both artists, and it's a privilege to bring them back.



Cash & Cline is presented in two acts, with each artist and their bands performing the hits you know and love. But it's the finale that really steals the show, as Terry Lee and Josie take the stage together to sing songs and share stories about the icons that they hold so dear. If you love classic country, this is the show for you!

Chiller Theatre: The Musical
Friday & Saturday Only!  October 21 & 22

The Strand 'Revives' (Get It?) This Hauntingly Hilarious Musical Revue, Live(ish) On Stage!

 

Chiller Theatre: The Musical is a delightfully demented music and comedy revue that pays a wink and a nudge to those late night fright fests that kept as awake at night, hosted by the likes of Chilly Billy and Elvira.  But it's also outrageously original, and like nothing you'll find anywhere else to help you celebrate the Halloween season.

An off-the-wall host tries to keep the show on track.  But even more colorful characters and questionable circumstances make that a daunting task.  From the classic monsters to inept psychics, no other Halloween show will have you rolling in the aisles or tapping your toes like this one.

And you haven't experienced karaoke at its frightful finest until you've seen Chiller Theatre's 'Skaraoke' Contest, featuring twisted takes on rock and pop standards by characters that likely shouldn't be doing them for a variety of reasons.  And when our remedial psychic tries to reach spirits from the beyond....well....the results are as hilarious as they are unexpected!

Chiller Theatre: The Musical is the second show of our all new 'Tis The Season subscription series.  Subscribers can enjoy this show, plus Children Of Eden at a deep discount, plus additional discounts on select holiday-themed shows, no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a 'Tis The Season Subscriber today!

It's a USO Christmas harkens back to the beloved variety shows made famous by the likes of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe and The Andrews Sisters.  We honor these heroes of yesteryear with a fictional cast of characters and a story that weaves between on-stage performances and peaks 'behind the curtain'.

 

The Emcee is the wise-cracking song and dance man, trying to keep his stars in line and the troops entertained. The Starlet is a voluptuous bombshell that handles anything from the sultry 'Santa Baby' to the warm-hearted 'Christmas Song'. The Broad has soul, wit & heart wrapped up in a bawdy, funny gal. She'll make you laugh, then break your heart.  The GI is young, handsome, idealistic, and sings like an angel.


It's A USO Christmas is a show whose audience has grown every year since its debut.  Updated with new music and comedy routines in 2015, it continues to find new fans while others make it a part of their annual Christmas traditions, just like A Musical Christmas Carol or The Nutcracker.  But this is an EXCLUSIVE production of The Strand.  If you don't see it here, you won't see it anywhere else!

Original Music Revue Saluting a Groundbreaking Collaboration

 

In 1963, Ella Fitzgerald and The Count Basie Orchestra were already titans in jazz and blues.  While they did work together on the 1957 album One O'Clock Jump, it was Ella & Basie!, with arrangements by a young Quincy Jones, that was to become one of the most revered projects of the industry.

This original concert tells the story of this iconic collaboration.  Brought to you by the creative minds behind It's a USO Christmas, Broadway Rocks! and Celebration: America, this concert tells the story of these two legends and a young protoge, leading up to the 1963 release, of course the album itself, and a hint of what was stil to come.

Children of Eden
March 31 - April 9, 2017

Stephen Schwartz' Beloved Interpretation of The Book of Genesis is The Strand's Next Full-Cast, Fully Produced Musical!

 

Children of Eden is probably Stephen Schwartz' most popular musical to never actually have a run on Broadway, the show has since grown to become a global phenomenon.

Whether you've seen this beloved musical once or a dozen times, you haven't seen it produced in the intimate setting that is The Strand Theater.  You won't miss a single smile, whisper or tear, with the furthest seat in the house just 25' away.  Of course, Strand audiences have come to expect a professional production featuring a stellar cast and top-shelf production values, and it is ever our goal to meet or exceed those expectations.

Children of Eden
at its heart, explores the lessons of family, parenting and letting go.  This joyous and inspiring musical celebrates the difficulty of choice, the importance of passion, the value of questioning, and the pain in allowing those you love to take risks and face the consequences.  Be sure to spend part of your Easter season at The Strand to experience this wonderful program.

Children of Eden is the anchor show of our all new 'Tis The Season subscription series.  Subscribers can enjoy this show, plus Celebration: America and Chiller Theatre: The Musical at a deep discount, plus additional discounts on select holiday-themed shows, no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a 'Tis The Season Subscriber today!

Groucho: A Life in Revue
Fri - Sun, May 12 - 14, 2017

Critically Acclaimed Story of the Vaudeville Legend

 

Everyone has a friend who does a great Groucho, right? Your uncle does a great Groucho, you probably think you do a great Groucho, and will spout out a “that’s the most reediculous thing I ever hoid” at the slightest provocation. But according to Pittsburgh Post Gazette Theater Critic, Chris Rawson, Strand Fan-Favorite Jeremy Czarniak, ‘is the complete thing, which means not just the physical imitation – that’s the least of it, really – but the life within’. Jeremy’s portrayal twice won him mentions in The PG’s ‘Best Actor’ Category.

Co-written by Groucho’s son, Arthur Marx & Robert Fisher, this show is an energetic romp through the life of one of Vaudeville’s pioneers. Fast-paced, but also heartfelt & sentimental, A Life in Revue offers music, comedy and drama as it peers into the life of a comic who, toward the end of his life, almost apologizes for it.

Groucho: A Life in Revue completes The Strand's all-new Broadway On Main subscription series.  Subscribers will enjoy this show, plus the full-cast Big River and the original Ella & Basie! concert at a deep discount, plus a BONUS offer for the one-man play, The Chief.  Additional benefits include no-hassle date and seat changes if needed and first priority alert status on new shows before they're announced to the general public.  Become a Broadway On Main Subscriber today!
