THE STRAND opened its doors in 1922 and its landmarked interior shines as brightly today as it did then. Located in historic downtown Lakewood, New Jersey, THE STRAND is easily accessible and offers a wide variety of live entertainment including concerts, dance, musicals, & theater, comic performances, and arts education to all of New Jersey and the surrounding region. In addition, THE STRAND features activities for senior citizens and theater camps for children and teens.
