Bold Women. Then. Now. Always.
While the Grand Opening of our new home on Harford Road is still a few months away, the Strand is happy to offer a sneak preview to our audiences, by presenting two short programs this July! Our doors will also be open during the Hamilton Festival, so please stop by to take a peak!

Frank Talk* by Sharon Goldner
Book-In-Hand production by the Strand Theater Company and Baltimore Playwrights Festival
Toying with the notion that Anne Frank is indeed alive and well (or seemingly so), Frank Talk delves into what happens after this discovery is made and the world-wide frenzy that occurs thereafter. Frank Talk takes a brazen look at society and its treatment of its icons.

WE HAVE A NEW HOME!
Following a two-year search for a permanent space and a concerted effort to secure funding, the Strand Theater Company is happy to announce -
WE HAVE A NEW HOME!!!
Woman-focused Strand Theater buys new home in Hamilton-Lauraville
by Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun
The Strand is moving to the historic Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood, where a former bank building has just the right attributes to become a home for our thriving company! We look forward to being a part of this vibrant and supportive community, and continuing our mission of amplifying women's voices on stage and off!
The Strand is grateful for the generous support of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street (Richard Marsiglia - President of the Board and Regina Lansinger - Director), and Dian Combs in making this move possible, and to every donor and community member, who played a part in the effort by helping us with their contributions, expertise, and encouragement! Thank you!
We cannot wait to celebrate with you, as the new Strand Theater opens to the public later this year, and unveils its 9th consecutive season!
Please stay tuned !

Coming This Fall!
Net Worth takes the audience on a journey of humor, money management and self-reflection as they attend a workshop on personal finances sponsored by the Lions Club of Cleveland, OH. Moving quickly back and forth between teaching in the present and reliving the memories that each subject evokes, our character finds the strength to declare independence from her “Liabilities” and understand the values of her “Assets.” Based on the life experiences and struggles of balancing finances with living an artistic life, Bari has created a one-person show that brings laughter (and fear!) to the audience. A layered production, Net Worth is also an homage to the spirit of a grandfather never met, and to whom Bari turns for guidance and, ultimately, freedom from a legacy which no longer serves her dreams, and which never served his.
