COVID-19 Update – May 21, 2020
In response to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, the Strand Theatre Preservation Society is taking new actions on the status of events. According to the governor’s West Virginia Strong – The Comeback plan, “entertainment venues such as movie theaters, sporting events, and concerts will remain closed for the foreseeable future.” Guidance from the governor’s office and local health department will lead the decision-making regarding holding events. It is the hope of the Strand that events will be able to be held beginning in August.
Based on guidance from the governor and health department, the Strand Theatre Preservation Society is taking the following actions regarding its spring and summer schedule of events. The revised schedule of events is tentative and contingent on guidance from the governor’s office and local health department.
August 1, 2020 – Moundsville’s Got Talent (rescheduled from March 13, 2020)
August 8, 2020 – Bridges (rescheduled from June 6, 2020)
August 22, 2020 – Shrimp Boil @ St. Jude Park (rescheduled June 13, 2020)
Fall 2020 – Concert in the Round Series (rescheduled from Spring 2020)
*Private rentals will occur when permitted by health guidelines*

FRIENDS OF THE STRAND
The Friends of the Strand are a vital part of the operation of the theatre, and your support is greatly appreciated! Unfortunately, we are not able to host our annual summer musical cabaret due to the current health situation. However, we are pleased to transfer the tickets included with your membership to the annual Christmas cabaret which is held in December.
MISSOULA CHILDREN’S THEATRE
The Missoula Children’s Theatre program has become a tradition for young actors at the Strand Theatre. Due to the current situation, the Strand will not host Missoula this year. We look forward to bringing the week-long acting camp back next summer!
ANNUAL SUMMER MUSICAL
It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the annual summer musical production. This event has become a staple of the Strand Theatre summer calendar for both performers and the community. We count on local sponsors and businesses for support of this production. Due to the current situation, we feel many individuals and businesses are not in the place to support this production as in past years. We value our sponsors continued support and look forward to partnering with them for future productions.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the Strand Theatre. Guidance and information are continuously evolving. Please follow our Facebook page and website (www.strandtheatrewv.com) for the most up to date information.
