A dynamic and intimate performance complex filled with the creative energy of the most exciting artists of the Bay Area and beyond, The Strand had its much-anticipated opening in spring 2015.
Located directly across from Civic Center’s lively UN Plaza, The Strand boasts a 283-seat theater, a 120-seat event and performance space, and a welcoming lobby and cafe that is open to city residents seeking a new destination in the Central Market neighborhood.
The Strand allows A.C.T. the flexibility to stage an expanded range of productions each season, including specially commissioned new work, cabaret and theater performances by A.C.T.’s M.F.A. Program and Young Conservatory students, educational workshops with school partners, event rentals for community groups, and celebrations for the A.C.T. community.
Most significantly, The Strand allows A.C.T. to deepen its impact on the city and community through the transformative power of theater.
The Strand Theater is located steps away from the Civic Center BART station.
