Shelby County Players

TONIGHT – 7:30pm

Saturday  – 7:30pm

Sunday – 2:00pm


Dear Strand Fan,

The Shelby County Players’ production of BOEING BOEING continues this weekend.   This is a very funny and entertaining play.   At last night’s performance a patron commented “Everyone in town should see this.   It is a great night of theater!”   Tickets are available.   Come out and get ready to take off with BOEING BOEING.


Did you notice the rain yesterday?   We did.   Our rain gauges had over 4” of rain during the morning hours.   We did a quick check of the theater and everything was dry.   We are on borrowed time with the main roof over the auditorium.   Each time it rains extremely hard we get a little nervous.


The Strand is poised for a jam packed month.    This week the SHELBYVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT will present at our Community Lecture Series.    The event is Wednesday October 11th at 7:00pm.   Come out and hear all the good things happening SFD.


Next Friday we welcome the BLUE RIVER COMMUNITY CHOIR and the SHELBY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL CHOIRS for the annual Arts Fest Concert.   The program starts at 7:00pm and is free.


Poetry, Comedy, Rock and Roll, Movies, Lectures…they are all on tap in the next few weeks.  Take a look at the schedule to the left for a complete listing of upcoming events.


The Strand is pleased to announce that DAMIAN McGINTY of Celtic Thunder will perform at our theater on Tuesday April 10, 2017.   Damian McGinty is an actor and singer from Derry, Northern Ireland.  He has been performing for over a decade, and was a member of the group Celtic Thunder for four years starting when he was fourteen.  Damian appeared on the reality show The Glee Project, earning him a seven-episode guest-starring role on the hit Fox television show Glee which was later extended to 18 episodes.    We look forward to welcoming Damian to the Strand Theatre next year.


We have lots of events on tap.    You can start tonight at BOEING BOEING.    We appreciate your support.  It is an honor for us to host so many talented performers at the Strand.   See you at the Strand!
