The Strand Celebrates 30 Years as a Performing Arts Center
We rely on our generous Friends of the Strand campaign to keep the Strand open and working, and it does, on a day to day basis. But the fact is, The Strand is an 89 year old historic theatre. 30 years after the restoration it is time to make some much needed repairs and updating. Mechanical equipment, some of it original, is aging and failing. The flat roof needs attention, carpet is wearing out, and stage lights and drapes desperately need replacement. For the past six years we have applied with the state for capital outlay funding for improvements totaling more than $1,000,000. Unfortunately, each year the Strand has been denied that funding.
Consider giving a birthday gift to the Strand. Over and above a Friends of the Strand donation, this birthday gift will be earmarked for improvements to our beloved Strand.
To date we have received
