It is late at night and six travelers find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated railway station outside of Rockland, Maine. The station master is closing the station for the night and he tries to persuade them to leave. He warns them of the supernatural danger of a ghost train that sometimes haunts the line at night, bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. With no where else to go the 6 travelers are left to spend the night.
A long running success in London and on Broadway and packed with thrills, chills and laughter. For sheer, creeping mystery, it’s a play without a peer.

About this Event
Saturday, October 23, 2021 Johnson Hall will be hosting a Masquerade Ball. In the 1800’s Johnson Hall annually hosted a Masquerade Ball. Since this will be our last October that we will be able to use the historic opera house before construction begins in April of 2022 we thought it was only fitting to revisit a great tradition that had long been forgotten.
Please come dressed in your best and be ready to dance the night away to our LIVE band SKOSH! Dance is from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Doors open at 7:30 PM.
Effective immediately, the management of Johnson Hall requires all audience members and staff to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test from the past 48 hours, along with a matching photo ID, in order to enter the venue.
Proof of vaccination can be your physical vaccine card or a photo of your card.

On the air over WRFR 93.3 in Rockland and 99.3 in Camden, and streamed live to a terror-stricken world at WRFR.org, the latest installment in the Strand Theatre’s own radio variety show features Liz McLeod and the Strand Family Players, announcer Dan Bookham, and musical director Brittany Parker in a full sixty minutes of haunting laughs and shuddery tunes.
Join the intrepid journalists of All Things Rescinded for a frightening journey deep into the heart of the service-industry labor shortage, a nightmarish expose of the hot new fad of adult napping, and an exclusive minds-eye look at the most terrifying Halloween costume of 2021. And down in Abysmal Point, you’ll be a nervous wreck as Mrs. Grunden and company stalk deep into the shadowy woods to rescue Gertie Crummet from the clutches of a marauding alien invasion. Steel your senses and warm up the radio for STRAND ON THE AIR, Sunday October 31st at 5PM!
