Walk The Line
Friday Only! October 7

Make it a 'Man In Black' Weekend!

 

Join us for this chronicle of the life of Johnny Cash ahead of Saturday's Cash & Cline Tribute Concert.  Walk The Line was nominated for 5 Oscars, and won 1 for Best Actress Reese Witherspoon.

 

Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon performed all of the songs themselves, without being dubbed. They also learned to play their instruments (guitar and auto-harp, respectively) from scratch.

 

During one scene, Johnny Cash is high and performing I Got Stripes, he walks right up to June Carter and glares at her for an uncomfortably long period of time on stage. According to the director, James Mangold, this was unscripted and improvised by the actors. Mangold said that he simply told Phoenix to do what he would do in real life if he were angry at his girlfriend and then had to perform on stage with her. Much to Phoenix's surprise, this backfired and Witherspoon responded to his actions by simply rolling her eyes, and continuing to perform the song. Phoenix later said that her reaction threw him off because his goal had been to make her as uncomfortable as possible, and she just tossed it aside. 

 

The director said that the two stars developed a very codependent relationship during filming. According to him, after the filming wrapped, Phoenix admitted that he and Witherspoon made a secret pact. The deal was that if one of them left or dropped out, the other would leave as well.  The relationship didn't start out that way, however.  Both admitted that they didn't get along at first because they were so nervous about singing.  They argued constantly for the first six months of singing lessons.  It was only after filming started that they become close friends.

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!

The Crazies & Creepshow
Friday Only! October 14

It's a Double Feature Creature Feature in Partnership with The Living Dead Weekend

 

It's that time of the year, when the shadows grow long and things go 'bump' in the night.  The Living Dead Weekend is a festival running in Evans City from October 14-16 in celebration of the town's tie-in with the film that redefined zombie movies, George Romero's 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead.

 

The Strand is partnering with The Living Dead Weekend to present some of Romero's best cult classics on our 25' screen and 45 speaker surround-sound as part of the festival.  In addition to the screenings, original cast members will be on hand to sign autographs and talk to fans.

 

Tonight, it's a double feature of Romero horror flicks that don't feature zombies.  The Crazies (1973) is about a military attempt to contain a manmade combat virus that causes death and permanent insanity in those infected, as it overtakes a small Pennsylvania town. Just like Night of the Living Dead, The Crazies was filmed in Evans City and many of the cast members were locals. No Hollywood stunt men were used.  Local firemen and licensed fireworks professionals handled all of the action sequences, including the creation and employment of blood squibs.

Creepshow (1982) is an anthology which tells five terrifying tales based on the E.C. horror comic books of the 1950s.  Romero directed the film and Stephen King wrote the screenplay and starred in one of the segments.  King and Romero are good friends, and always wanted to work with each other on a film. This was their opportunity and they took it.

Friday Only!  October 14  7:30pm start time.  There will be a short intermission between films.

Both films are Rated 'R' | Under 17 not admitted without accompanying parent or guardian. Sorry, no exceptions  |  The Crazies runtime - 1 Hour, 43 minutes | Creepshow runtime - 2 hours.

Night of the Living Dead
Saturday Only! October 15  8:30

Experience the Original Cult Classic with Live Celebrity Commentary During The Screening

 

 The Living Dead Weekend brings George Romero's original horror film back to The Strand, but with a new twist!  If you enjoy watching your favorite movie with the Director or Star commentary running during the film, then you're in for a real Halloween-themed treat.  The producers of The Living Dead Weekend have assembled original castmembers for this special screening, and they'll be on stage providing live commentary during the film.

 

The Strand is partnering with The Living Dead Weekend to present some of Romero's best cult classics on our 25' screen and 45 speaker surround-sound as part of the festival. Of course, Romero's 1968 original Living Dead film completely redefined the zombie genre.  He went on to film 5 sequels, and other studios have updated his originals, while still others have developed original movies and TV series, inspired by his vision of the dead returning to life, driven by an unsatiable hunger for living flesh.

 

During this special screening, you'll enjoy background information and stories about the film rarely heard or perhaps never shared before.  The original castmembers assembled by the crew of The Living Dead Weekend will be sharing these torrid tales as the horrors of the film unfold before your very eyes.

Saturday Only!  October 15  8:30pm start time.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Saturday Only! October 15  10:30

Let's Do The Time Warp Again, Just in Time for the Halloween Season

 

 The Strand Horror Crew is back for another trip to ultimate pleasure!  Expect plenty of dancing in the aisles, catcalls at the screen and of course, a costume contest with fabulous prizes....well.....bragging rights anyway!

 

The Feather Boa raffle will be back along with other cool shenanigans in honor of the cult classic.

 

A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

 

"The Time Warp" was originally written for the stage version to fill space as the original production was only 40-minutes long.

 

Most of the actors weren't told of the prop corpse of Eddie under the dining room tablecloth. When it was revealed during filming, their looks of horror are genuine. The only three who obviously knew about the scene were Tim Curry, Richard O'Brien (the author), and Meat Loaf, who had to model the corpse

 

FROM THE DESK OF OUR ATTORNEYS:  The hurling of anything other than catcalls and kudos are strictly forbidden.  Outside food, beverages or projectiles of any kind are strictly prohibited.  Good natures appreciated and dancing in the aisles and on stage expected! 

 

Saturday Only!  October 15  10:30pm start time.

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!

Take Grammy and Dove Award nominations, a trio of best-selling major label albums, seven chart-topping singles, plus songs in major sporting events (UFC, WWE) alongside countless viral videos, and it's certainly been a productive decade for Decyfer Down.

David Bruce Smith & Friends II
Sunday Only!  November 6  3pm & 7pm

FBruce is Back with an All-New Concert with a Line Up of New & Returning Friends!


On June 7 of last year, David 'Bruce' Smith assembled some of his closest friends and colleagues to create a ground-breaking concert experience! The show was so popular that a second was added to accommodate the demand. Every dollar from this concert went to defray Bruce's medical bills after overcoming a long illness. The Strand was privileged to host the concerts and assist in the planning of this unprecedented benefit.

The original concert featured a wide variety of friends and colleagues including Pete Hewlett, Scott Anderson, Michael Kelly Blanchard, Shane Treloar, Mary Ann Magini, Sam Carmella, Ben Hardt, Tom Lindsay, Toni Schlemmer, Duane & Elijah Davis, and many, many others. It was a magical night, celebrating life and music.

Now, Bruce is back, and he has decided to 'pay it forward' by making this all-new event a fundraising concert for the non-profit Strand Theater Initiative, the charity that owns and operates the historic Strand right here on Main Street in Zelienople. The staff and volunteers are grateful to Bruce for organizing this new concert.

Barbra & Frank: The Christmas Concert That Never Was
Sunday Only!  December 4   3pm & 7pm

A Sensational Tribute to Sinatra & Streisand with a Yuletide Spin!

 

Sebastian Anzaldo & Sharon Owens return to The Strand with their sensational tribute to Sinatra & Streisand, but this time the 'What If' showcases what a Christmas concert between to the two music legends might have been like!

Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand never shared a stage, and it's unlikely these two vocal powerhouses ever would have. But Anzaldo and Owens have had great fun answering the burning question 'What If?'.

The popular tribute artists take that question one step further with this special Christmas time version of their concert. Can you imagine how their snippy banter may have gone.....say...under a mistletoe? If you've enjoyed this stirring tribute act before, you'll be sure to love this Yuletide interpretation! If you've yet to experience Sebastian & Sharon in action, now is your chance!

It's A USO Christmas
Friday - Sunday, December 9 - 11, 2016
Swing into that Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Spirit

 

Nostalgia takes the stage as The Strand presents a concert event saluting those famous USO shows produced for our troops 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.  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.

Chris Collins & Members of Boulder Canyon
Saturday Only!  April 22, 2 Shows!

Stirring Tribute to Music Icon John Denver Returns
to The Strand with TWO Shows!


When Chris Collins first brought his tribute to music legend John Denver to The Strand in 2014, we had no idea what a phenomenon it would become. When he and members of Boulder Canyon performed earlier this year, the show had been Sold Out for over a month!

Lesson learned! The staff and volunteers of The Strand Theater are excited to report that, not only will this wildly popular show return in 2017, we've booked TWO performances for Saturday, April 22!

Chris Collins is an award-winning singer & songwriter making his triumphant fourth appearance at The Strand following three Sold Out concerts with his tribute to pop music icon John Denver. Collins and Boulder Canyon have toured the country, delighting audiences with their talent, warmth and humor. They've toured from coast to coast, paying tribute to the music of John Denver. The band has generated much acclaim from audiences all over the country. Collins and Boulder Canyon are not an impersonation act, but seek to honor Denver's legacy with fresh energy and musical integrity. Don't miss this incredible tribute to a pop music legend featuring Collins and members of Boulder Canyon in an acoustic-style concert event.

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!
