"Hey, you guys..." a classic comes to the Strand...The Goonies from 1985

A group of teenagers finds a map leading to a hidden treasure. They must overcome booby traps, natural obstructions, and a gang of desperate thieves in their race for the loot.

“First, you gotta do the truffle shuffle.”

"You boys like tongue?"

“I’m gonna hit you so hard when you wake up your clothes are gonna be out of style!”

"In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog..."

“Mikey! Come here and make me feel like a woman.”

"Always separate the drugs.”

“Goonies never say die!”

Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Live onstage

Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Text by John Cameron Mitchell, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask
Live on the stage of the Strand Theatre in downtown Vicksburg, this groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash which also won multiple awards for its hit film adaptation. It tells the story of "internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just "an angry inch." This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is performed by Hedwig (née Hansel) in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by the hard-rocking band "The Angry Inch." Using songs and monologues, Hedwig tells her story... Hedwig describes her life's search for "The Origin of Love" and her other half. It's a rocking ride, funny, touching, and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile.

All performances at 7:30 PM
