Welcome to the Flagstar Strand Theatre's new website...
We are currently hard at work planning our 2021/2022 calendar of events. 2021 marks the historic Strand Theatre's 100th year in Pontiac. To celebrate, we're bringing live performances and special events to not only the beautiful Grand Theatre, but to two new performance spaces as well. Second @ Strand is located on the second floor of the Flagstar Strand Theatre and it is used as both a multi-purpose space for private events as well as an intimate performance spot for small music ensembles, comedy and cabaret performances. Also, look for rotating art galleries and other special events!
Our other new performance space was born in August of 2020. We wanted to provide the Pontiac community with great entertainment, but needed to be able to do so safely. So, we put some bands on our iconic marquee, closed down Saginaw Street for the day and the Marquee Concert Series was born! Each month from June through August, we'll feature live music plus food and drinks from all of our Downtown bars and restaurants so you can enjoy fun in the sun and dancing in the streets!
We're also happy to introduce our brand new theatre education program, Strand Theatre Art (STArt) which provides students, aged 8 - 18 with learning and performance opportunities. Beginning with summer sessions in June of 2021, the STArt Learning! program will offer two learning opportunities for both beginners and more experienced performers as well as opportunities to audition for our STArt Youth Theatre ensemble.
As always, the beautifully renovated theatre is also available for private rentals. All of our facilities are available for rent, whether you're looking to a host a special event, fundraiser, corporate event or your dream wedding. Contact our Events Team and we'll take care of everything.
This site is currently under construction and will be updated often, so check back for updates or better yet,

We look forward to seeing you in 2021 when we can, once again, gather and enjoy the arts and entertainment, and all that Downtown Pontiac has to offer!
