White Christmas
Friday - Sunday, November 28 - 30
Starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye & Rosemary Clooney


One of the world's best known and most beloved Christmas Carols made its debut in 1942's Holiday Inn starring Crosby and Fred Astaire. More than 10 years later, this film was produced around the already fabled song title, & was the first film produced in Paramount's wide screen process "VistaVision".

 

The original idea was to reunite Crosby with Holiday Inn co-star Fred Astaire.  But Astaire refused, as he had 'retired' at the time, so the part was reworked for Donald O'Connor.  O'Connor pulled out due to illness,and the part was again reworked at the last minute for Danny Kaye.  While not as well-received as its predecessor at the time, White Christmas has become a seasonal staple, charming generations of audiences over the years.

 

Crosby and Kaye play a successful song-and-dance team who become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former WWII commanding general.

 

Parents, when your kids groan at the suggestion of seeing this film, drag them out anyway. It may be years before they admit to how much they loved it, but they will! This funny and lively musical will really get the whole family into the Christmas Spirit.

Conversations That Matter
Thursday Only! December 4   7:00pm
Sponsored by the Harmony/Zelienople Ministerium

 

A ministerium is where various pastors come from all over the community — some Protestant, some Catholic — that come together to help and serve that community. 

 

In this case, The Harmony/Zelienople Ministerium would like to help you have Conversations That Matter, a series of open and respectful discussions on issues of life and faith that we all hold in common.  

 

A discussion panel made up of local, community and spiritual leaders will act as moderators.  The moderators hope to spur a meaningful dialogue among all of those in attendance to address these topics and seek out answers that can help us deal with these issues and challenges.

 

The topic of this Open Forum will be "Are All Religions The Same?"  In a world of mixed religious messages, how do we figure out what to believe?  Do Islam and Christianity and Buddhism share the same God?  What about all of the different Christian churches?  Are Baptists and Presbyterians and Catholoics all the same?  Does it
matter?

This forum is open to the public and free of charge.  People from all walks of life are invited to attend and participate.  Following the one hour panel discussion, we encourage everyone to carry on the conversation over dessert at one of our fine local restaurants.   For more information or questions on the forum, please call Pastor Mark Sentell at 724-991-5911.

The Polar Express
Friday - Sunday, December 5 - 7
Starring the Voice of Tom Hanks

Hanks voices many roles in this heartwarming tale that has become a contemporary classic and holiday favorite.

 

Santa Claus does not exist. Or does he? For one doubting boy, an astonishing event occurs. Late on Christmas Eve, he lies in bed hoping to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa's sleigh. When, to his surprise, a steam engine's roar and whistle can be heard outside his window.

 

The conductor invites him on board to take an extraordinary journey to the North Pole with many other pajama-clad children. There, he receives an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience.

The film used 3D motion capture techniques to digitally record the physical performances of the actors before "skinning" them with their animated forms. All the children's roles were acted by adults using oversized props to get the movement right.

The locomotive in the movie is based on the Pere Marquette 1225, a restored steam locomotive located in Owosso, MI. In fact, many of the sound effects of the film's train are recordings of the actual train. The train is often run between Owosso and nearby Chesaning for rides during festivals.

It's A USO Christmas
December 12 - 14
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!

Miracle on 34th Street
Friday - Sunday, December 19 - 21
Starring Natalie Wood, Maureen O'Hara & John Payne

Few films over the generations have touched the American heartstrings like Miracle on 34th Street.  Often copied, but never duplicated, this 1947 gem takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, from humor to drama to heartache and back again.  At one time or another, we are all faced with the 'reality' of Santa Claus. Miracle on 34th Street addresses the topic in a way that we can all once again believe.

 

O'Hara plays no-nonsense Macy's Special Events Director Doris Walker.  When faced with having to replace her storefront 'Santa' who is too drunk to take part in the big Thanksgiving Day Parade, a kindly old gentlemen agrees to take his place.  Everyone is smitten with this new Santa until he claims to be 'THE' Kris Kringle.  Even Doris' daughter, Susan is taken with this jolly old fellow, even though she hasn't believed in Santa Claus for quite some time.

 

Threatened with being committed to an insane asylum, a young attorney (John Payne) decides to defend Mr. Kringle by proving that he is, indeed, the one and only Santa Claus.

 

Bring the kids to this one even if they don't seem thrilled with the idea of seeing an old black-and-white movie.  This is a true piece of Christmas Americana that will stay with them for years to come.

Andrew Lloyd Webber - Revisited
JAN 30 - 31, 2015
The Strand Brings Back One of Broadway's Most Beloved Composers!
LIVE ON STAGE!!
Headlined by a Broadway or National Tour star and a stellar local supporting cast!

 

When The Strand presented its first Andrew Lloyd Webber concert in 2011, it was the first time we had to add a peformance!  There's no debate that the man behind such smash hits as Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar (to name a few) has become the most successful and most beloved modern day composer in Broadway history.  So it stands to reason that, if we were to 'return to the well', that Sir Webber would be the one.  That, and the constant shout-out of fans and patrons of the Broadway Series.

 

As this is the inaugural season for our all-new Broadway On Main subscription series, Andrew Lloyd Webber - Revisited will be a fresh take on this incredible composer.  Of course, you'll enjoy some of the great hits from the first concert, but with a songbook as think as Sir Webber's we'll be able to take you on an entirely new journey!

 

 

If you missed the first Andrew Lloyd Webber concert, this is your chance to make up for that horrendous error.  If you were here for the first go 'round, we promise that you won't regret returning for round 2!This concert will showcase a bona fide Broadway or National Tour star, alongside a stellar, local supporting cast as has become the signature of The Strand's EXCLUSIVE series that has grown up and is now called “Broadway On Main.”

LIVE ON STAGE!!
Experience Creation to Celebration in this inspiring concert featuring music from Broadway's most popular shows based on The Good Book!

 

In 2014, The Strand broke new ground with this original program that showcases some of Broadway's most beloved music based on Biblical stories.  The combined adult cast and children's chorus brought tears of joy to so many patrons, we knew we had to bring it back.

 

If you missed this joyous concert, don't make the same mistake in 2015.  Bible On Broadway takes you on a musical journey from Creation to Resurrection, drawing inspiration from shows like Jesus Christ, Superstar, Godspell, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Two By Two and more.  It's a truly inspired blend of music that will have you tapping your toes at some points, singing along at others and raising your eyes in praise at the next

Broadway ROCKS!
MAY 15 & 16, 2015
The Strand Presents an All-New Broadway Concert Experience
LIVE ON STAGE!!

 

We've been pushing the envelope all year for our all-new Broadway On Main Subscription series, and now it's time to raise the roof! 

 

Many of Broadway's biggest smash hits aren't considered to be traditional musicals at all, but 'Rock Operas'.  Rock and Pop music has been exercising its influence on Broadway for decades, dating back to such memorable smash hits as Bye, Bye Birdie, Jesus Christ, Superstar (sound familiar?), Hair and Pippin.  In some cases, entire shows have been based on the music of specific artists like ABBA (Mama Mia!), The Who's TOMMY and Billy Joel (Movin' Out).  Most recently, 80s 'Hair Band' music was showcased in Rock Of Ages.

 

The Strand brings all that fantastic rock and pop music center stage in the all-new concert experience Broadway Rocks!  You'll want to dig out your lighters (or smartphone lighter apps) and wave them through the air when you hear some of your favorite smash hits from these incredible shows!

 

 

Broadway Rocks is something you've NEVER experienced at The Strand before, or anywhere else for that matter.  As much a rock concert as a Broadway tribute, the evening will include a very eclectic mix of music from a wide vareity of musicals and rock operas where the music was as much of the story as the plot and characters!

 

This will be one for the record books and something you will definitely not want to miss.  And you can get it at a discount when you subscribe to our all new signature series: “Broadway On Main.”
