We've super excited to have back Ron Carter, Executive Director of the Strand Theater, in Zelienople PA. It has been quite a bit since we last had Ron join us but it was worth the wait as Ron brought with him quite an extensive list of upcoming events to close out 2022 and some key highlights to kick off 2023.
Founded in 2001, The Strand Theater Initiative is a non-profit created with the mission of reviving Zelienople’s old Strand Theater as a cultural, education, and community outreach center. Through private and public financial support, The Initiative purchased The Strand in 2002 and completed the first of three planned construction phases in 2009. Since its reopening, The Strand has presented a wide variety of theater, concert, and film programming.
Ron starts off the show by sharing with us some of the upcoming events in November as White Christmas is running until November 20th. The Polar Express and Elf will be shown to wrap up November & kick off December. Christmas with Chris Jamison, The Voice Finalist, will be on December 2nd & 3rd. Can't miss YULE TV's Greatest Hits on December 16th and 17th.
Fan Favorite "It's a USO Christmas" will be returning for 2 days only, December 17th & 18th. A showing of "It Happened on 5th Avenue" will be on December 23rd to wrap up the holdiay season. Ron is very excited to be showing the independent film, MVP, on December 30th, January 6th and 7th.

-Purple Piano: A Prince Tribute on January 8th
