Want to support the Strand as we continue to grow? Become a Friend of the Strand today! 

The Strand Theatre Preservation Society had a full calendar of events scheduled for 2020, but due to COVID, events from March through August were cancelled. These included events such as Moundsville’s Got Talent, spring play, summer musical, children’s acting classes, children’s summer camp, spring yard sale, shrimp boil, multiple cabarets and concerts, as well as new programming initiatives such as the Concerts in the Round series. As 2020 progressed, the Strand Theatre Preservation Society endeavored to find events that could be held which followed state and county health and safety guidelines.  As a result, an indoor yard sale, a private rental, two movies, and the Nutcracker ballet were successfully scheduled.


In true theatre fashion and despite many events being cancelled, the Strand Theatre Preservation Society worked hard behind the scenes throughout 2020. The last remaining unfinished basement space is currently being renovated to serve as a theatre office. Additionally, a new light board has been installed expanding lighting possibilities opportunities for performances and a new safety ladder has been installed ensuring safe access to the catwalk above the stage. Our future goals include continuing to improve the theatre experience by acquiring a new sound system and upgrading stage mechanics to be safer and more efficient.
