STRAND ON THE AIR Holiday Special Sunday Dec. 8

By The Strand Theatre | Nov 29, 2019

A live radio variety show!

Jingle the bells, deck the halls, string the popcorn, and fire up the transmitter – because THE STRAND IS ON THE AIR! Once again that call rings out over station WRFR and its worldwide internet stream as the Strand Theatre presents the third edition of its popular live radio variety show.

Once again House Manager Liz McLeod and the Strand Family Players offer up the comedy, with all the news you never knew you needed as reported by the team at “All Things Rescinded.” There will be another visit to those distinctive personalities who inhabit Abysmal Point -- where local troublemaker Mrs. Grunden teams up with none other than Santa Claus himself to save Christmas from a rapacious Internet marauder.

The music is again under the able supervision of Strand Education Coordinator Brittany Parker and the Blake Rosso Band, who’ll offer a whole new slate of snowy yet salty holiday rhythms in their distinctive rootsy Americana style. As always, the program will also feature a popular local band as musical guest stars – this time it's bluegrass quartet "Playin' Possum." And new on the program this time around is an exciting quiz feature, “Take it From Lizzie,” in which a member of the theater audience will be selected to join Liz at the microphone for a chance to win some exciting Strand prizes.
