Event has passed

    Grab your fried dough, your frozen slushie, and your big cardboard bowl full of french fries and head to the radio for Strand on the Air’s August broadcast. The “All’s Fair Special” can be heard on Sunday, August 28, at 5 p.m., by tuning in to WRFR at 93.3 in Rockland or by streaming at Following their broadcasts, these radio variety shows are made available to stream on the Strand Theatre website at, and as podcasts.

    Liz McLeod and the Strand Family Players will promenade down the midway with original comedy sketches, as Brittany Parker and Friends holding forth in the music tent along with selected highlights from the Midcoast Music Academy’s recent summer recital. All Things Rescinded explores the wonders of Beano, the perils of the “Back To Preschool” season, and “Every Reason To Love September,” while down in Abysmal Point, Mrs. Grunden, Gertie Crummet, Edith Menhaden, and Lilita wonder if they’ll ever get down from the top of a stalled Ferris Wheel.

    “It’s end-of-the-summer radio fun at its funnest!” said the Strand, in a news release.

    This show is presented by recording by the Strand Theatre.
