Shreveport Celebrates The Strand Theatre

Posted: Updated:

The Strand Theatre in Shreveport had a big party Tuesday and everyone was invited!

They celebrated their 30th anniversary since reopening in 1984 as a performing arts center.

Of course, The Strand is much older --- it was first opened in 1925.

A couple hundred people came out to show their support of the old building, which wouldn't be open today without help from the community.

"We have to get the new people in here so that they can see the building before they fall in love with it and we have to have them fall in love with it so they'll support it," said General Manager Jenifer Hill.

At the party, they also revealed their big acts for this season.

One they predict will be a huge hit --- "Mama Mia."
