Dear Strand Fan,

We have a full weekend!  Tonight our lecture series continues with Tamara Ogle from Purdue University.   She is going to help us understand our local taxes and how they support our government.    The event is free and is also broadcast live on our Facebook site.    The lecture starts at 7pm and lasts approximately one hour.   There will be a question and answer session tonight too!

Tomorrow Friday Night Frights returns with the 1965 classic BLOODY PIT OF HORROR.   This Italian gothic horror movie tells the story of a group of women modeling for a photo shoot at a castle, whose owner takes on the identity of the Crimson Executioner, bent on their deaths.   The show starts at 7:30pm.   Admission is $7

Saturday night we are showing GREASE (1978).  This is in honor of the passing this week of Olivia Newton-John.    This will be fun.  Come dressed up and sit in the balcony and relive GREASE as it was in 1978.   Lots of singing, dancing, and hot Strand popcorn!   The movie starts at 7:30pm.  Admission is $7.

Next week we welcome LOVE & ROCK – WOMEN OF MUSIC to the Strand stage.  Saturday August 20 at 7:30pm.   “Love & Rock” is a large-scale, live concert musical production that pays tribute to the music of the amazing WOMEN OF MUSIC throughout our time – the first of its kind!

In genres of: Rock, Country, POP, R&B, Musicals, and Movie Soundtracks. This show wants its attendees to feel like they are part of the show, as they follow the ups and downs of this journey. You will hear iconic music from the top WOMEN OF MUSIC spanning from the 60’s through today. You will hear the anthems, power ballads, and songs that will be remembered for eternity.

The “Love & Rock” team has spent countless hours developing a production that is entertaining for everyone. Our nationally touring musicians and vocalists include the music industry’s most talented musicians from past phenomenal shows. The cast members were carefully selected because of their professional and eclectic backgrounds and will bring their unique presence to the show.

This live concert musical production will have you singing, laughing, crying, and out of your seats. It is a celebration of music, and it has the opportunity for music fans to unite and party under one roof. Our cast looks forward to seeing all of you at our next performance. It is a performance you don’t want to miss, right here in downtown Shelbyville.   Tickets are available at the door, online, or at Shelbyville Paint Wallpaper and More.
