Francesco Attesti
Friday Only!  May 22nd  8:00pm
International Concert Pianist Returns to The Strand

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE ZELIENOPLE ROTARY CLUB

FRANCESCO ATTESTI has always been drawn to the perfection of phrasing and the sound of the instrument, and has developed very special and unique expressions. Maestro Perticaroli himself has said: "Francesco Attesti's piano playing is unusual. Everything that happens in the sound, in the phrasing, and in the musical conception, starts from an aesthetic and musical conviction and it brings the performance out of every formal and consumistic prevision."
 
Currently, Francesco Attesti performs regularly in internationally prestigious concert halls like: Philharmonia Hall of Saint Petersburg, Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Moscow, Mozarteum of Salzburg, Philharmonie Essen, International Piano Festival of Warsaw, Sarajevo Winter Festival, Cambridge University, Leicester University, Columbia University in New York, Denver University in Colorado, and the Conservatory "G. Verdi" in Milan.

This type of concert could

easily have been found at a Heinz Hall or Benedum Center.  But due to his status as an international Rotarian, Francesco has graciously agreed to bring his incredible performance skills and unique musical style back to Zelienople for a second straight year as a benefit  in support of the Zelienople Rotary, The Shelter Box program and The Strand.

 

This EXCLUSIVE area appearance is the type of intimate and culturally uplifting experience that The Strand was built for.  It is an honor and a privilege that The Zelienople Rotary selected it for such a prestigious event.

American Sniper
Saturday & Sunday ONLY!  May 23 & 24
Starring Bradley Cooper & Sienna Miller

Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle's pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

 

Bradley Cooper bought the rights to Chris' story with intent to have another actor fill the role, but eventrually changed his mind.  He wanted to accurately portray Kyle, and went into extensive training, both physical and mental.  He started an intense weight training program, but didn't want to look 'cut' or 'ripped', because that was not who Chris Kyle was. His workouts were designed to give him great size but not muscle definition. Cooper ended up going from 185 pounds to 225 pounds for this role to appear large like Chris Kyle and actually sported a gut for the movie.

 

Cooper's preparation also included twice-daily lessons with a vocal coach, as well as many hours spent studying footage of Chris Kyle. When it came to actually pointing a rifle, the actor trained with Navy SEAL sniper Kevin Laca, who served with Kyle and was a consultant on the movie.

 

Chris Kyle's father personally told Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper that he would "unleash Hell" if his son's memory was disrespected in this film. However, he also said that Eastwood and Cooper were "men he could trust."

The John Burgh Band - Live On Stage
Wednesday ONLY!  May 27
Help Us Celebrate Zelie's 175th Birthday

The Strand is privileged to be an active participant in Zelienople's 175th anniversary celebration, taking place all week long at the end of May.

On Wednesday, May 27, we present local musical favorite, The John Burgh Band, live on stage!If you are ever in Zelienople for the July 4th parade and hear lively music coming down the street from an old fire truck, that is Johnny Burgh and his band.  He has been a local tradition in the parade for over 40 years and entertained thousands of fans.  The music is a mix of marches, patriotic songs and raucous dixieland jazz; some of which will be heard at the Strand performance.

Johnny (pictured above right with fellow Bluesmen Eugene Morgan), calls Zelie his hometown and, for many years, played with his father Charlie (on banjo) for local events like Horse Trading Days and the Fall Festival.  He has also traveled the world and done a great deal of performing around Pittsburgh with many well known musicians and singers.

 
There will be quite a variety of music in Wednesday's show with a few surprise guest artists and lots of fun.

The two are crashing the gates again as they bring back their One-Night Only Comedy & Variety Festival.  Bring the whole family to this extravaganza and expect all manner of hilarity, music and mayhem as Mark & Jonathan draft a whole new cast of questionable characters; from a family cirkus (no, NOT misspelled) to stand-ups to a fully appointed one-man band! The show features national & international touring talent that's appeared on America’s Got TalentThe Late Show with David LettermanThe Tonight Show with Jay Leno, & stages around the globe. 

 

Mark and Jonathan will be appearing together as hosts and separately with their own acts.  In addition, the follwing performers are scheduled to appear:

 

BINDLESTIFF FAMILY CIRKUS - Since 1995 the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has traveled the world, bringing its unique hybrid of Vaudeville, Circus, Wild West Shows, Burlesque, and Sideshow to theaters, clubs, colleges, and festivals. The company has produced innumerable cabaret shows, custom performances for special audiences, all-ages and family productions, and sophisticated adult shows. Bindlestiff provides a contemporary twist to the grand traditions of American Circus.

 

CHIP CHANTRY - Chip is a handsome, young comedian from the suburbs of Philadelphia. His first performances were opening for his brother's band at Fergie's Pub in Philly and since then Chip has become a regular in comedy clubs across the country.

NICK DISANTO - Nick DiSanto is a musician and sculptor from Lancaster. Traveling the American Northeast with his guitar and a multifunctional contrivance known as the DiSantomophone, Nick performs his one-man show wherever audiences might gather.

It's a fantastic flashback as The Strand helps its beautiful hometown celebrate its 175th birthday!

 

Zelienople will spend the entire last week of May celebrating 175 years since its incorporation.  Events, merchandise and activities have been in the planning stages for nearly a year.  While digging up old photos to use in its commemorative 175th Anniversary Book, organizers discovered severalshots of The Strand during a parade in the 1940s with 'RANCHO GRANDE' emblazoned on the marquee.  So we thought it would be a real hootenanny to screen that very film after the parade on May 30, FREE OF CHARGE!

 

 

So Join us for this Gene Autry vehicle from 1940 in which Gene plays a ranch foreman dealing with a bunch of irresponsible young heirs to the ranch after its owner passes away.

Bigfoot - The Movie
Saturday & Sunday ONLY!  May 30 & 31

Starring Curt Wootton, Joanie Dodds & Jared Show

 

Bigfoot has come to the town of Ellwood City, PA and is causing BIG problems. Now it's up to three town locals to take him down.

 

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign and filmed in Ellwood City, LA Filmmaker and hometown hero Jared Show assembled a colorful cast of characters from all over the region to bring his vision to life!  The movie features some of Pittsburgh's most famous and best loved celebrities like Curt Wootton (Pittsburgh Dad), Joanie Dodds (America's Next Top Model), Jim Krenn (stand-up comic, formerly of the WDVE morning show), Mike Wysocki (WDVE), and even veteran news anchor Darieth Chisolm (formerly of WPXI) among others.

 

This comedy/horror flick that doesn't take the Bigfoot legend all too seriously.  Mullets, guns and beer are in full supply as the movie skewers the Pittsburgh 'Yinzer' stereotype right alongside the Bigfoot myth.  This is a send-up that will delight anyone who has ever said or heard the phrase, "Hey, yinz goin' dahntahn to pump an Iron 'n at?" 

 

Members of the cast and crew will be on hand to greet fans and answer questions about the production. Bigfoot: The Movie is a comedy/horror flick that is not rated but is described by the filmmakers as most closely matching the PG-13 rating.

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
Friday & Saturday ONLY!  June 5 & 6
Starring the Voices of Tom Kenny & Antonio Banderas

Over 10 years after his first Big Screen adventure, that loveable yellow sponge with the extraordinarily starchy trowsers is back with a new mission.

 

When a diabolical pirate above the sea steals the secret Krabby Patty formula, SpongeBob and his nemesis Plankton must team up in order to get it back. 

 

The iconic TV series' original staff from seasons 1-3 returned to work for this movie, especially creator Stephen Hillenburg who has now returned to SpongeBob full time after leaving the show after the first movie (although he still reviewed episodes and gave suggestions). It was announced by Paul Tibbitt in December 2014 that Hillenberg will work on the show's upcoming 10th season.

 

This is the first Hollywood-studio animated film to use hand-drawn animation, since the release of Winnie the Pooh (2011) (which also starred the voice of Tom Kenny ).

 

Antonio Banderas and Eric Bauza both star in the film as Captain Burgerbeard and one of the seagulls respectively. Both actors have voiced the character of Puss in Boots in separate Dreamworks Productions. Banderas voiced the character in the theatrically released films whilst Bauza voiced the character in The Adventures of Puss in Boots series.

Starring Kevin Costner


A cross country coach in a small California town transforms a team of athletes into championship contenders.


The struggling coach and teacher who has had to move around for different incidents in his career finally comes to one of the poorest cities in America - McFarland.

Disciple
Saturday Only!  July 25th

Raucous Rock for the Mind AND Spirit!

 

Christian Metal/Rock Band, Disciple, will take the Strand stage by storm on July 25th with intentions to raise the roof and spirit with their high energy show! 

 

Disciple's newest album is called Attack, and it is the band's most ambitious project to date. It's bold, it's hard, it's experimental, and it's sweepingly atmospheric. Attack gives a nod to long-time Disciple fans with "Radical" and "The Name" and the album will intrigue new listeners with offerings like "Dead Militia," "Lion," and "Angels And Demons."

 

 

According to front man, Kevin Young, "We wrote this record as a new band. Attack is the right album title because that's what we did with every song. Every band member contributed in a huge way to this album. It was definitely a well-coordinated attack on all sides."   Young adds, "I  knew that the lyrics would be the boldest Disciple has ever put on a record.  I wanted to talk about Jesus loudly and without shame.  We talk about Jesus openly at every show.  We do an altar call.  That is who we are and that is what Disciple is called to do, and we hope that people hear the new music and say 'Yeah, now THAT'S Disciple!'"

 

This is not an 'unplugged' or 'acoustic' style show.  It's a full-tilt, melt-your-face rock show in the intimate setting of The Strand!  Place your order today!

Terry Lee Goffee says of his show "I wanted to make my show different and unique by portraying Johnny Cash in the first person, rather than just standing there singing the songs. Like an actor in a play I literally become my character, in this case Johnny Cash, from the moment I walk onstage until the end of the show." Terry is widely recognized as the best Johnny Cash impersonator around

 

Josie Waverly IS Patsy Cline!

It's A USO Christmas
December 11 - 13, 2015
Swing into that Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Spirit

 

It’s a USO Christmas takes you back in time to enjoy your favorite Christmas songs at their classic best! Nostalgia takes the stage as The Strand presents a professional concert that pays tribute to those famous USO programs produced for our boys in uniform overseas back in the 1940s and 50s.  Expect non-stop music, comedy and ‘backstage’ hijinks.

 

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.  Artistic Director Ron Slanina pays tribute to these heroes of yesteryear with a fictional cast of characters and a story that weaves between on-stage performances and peaks 'behind the curtain' for added fun and frivolity. 

 

The Emcee is the wise-cracking host and crooner.  But holding the show together with these temperamental stars can be a challenge!

 

The Starlet is a voluptuous bombshell and flirty kitten, with a range that handles anything from the sultry 'Santa Baby' to the warm-hearted 'Christmas Song'.  But can she handle the G.I. who only has eyes for her?

 

The Broad is ‘Rosemary Clooney meets Bette Midler’. She's a true performer with soul, wit & heart wrapped up in a bawdy, funny gal. She makes you laugh, but can break your heart. 

 

The GI; young, handsome, idealistic, and sings like an angel. Well...an angel who can't keep his eyes off of The Starlet!


It's A USO Christmas has become one of those programs that has become synonymous with the Christmas season.  Fans make it a part of their yuletide 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!
