Rental Information

Get on The Strand’s Stage



Onstage or offstage, The Strand live entertainment venue offers an excellent venue for your theater rental. Our well-equipped and professionally staffed theater in Lakewood, New Jersey, is able to handle a variety of events including theater play luncheons, concerts, dance recitals, and other comedy shows.

It is no wonder why The Strand is a premier NJ theater for rent. Our main entrance, under a grand neon-lit marquee, opens into the elegantly designed lobby and reception gallery. This 2,000 square feet of open space, when not in use for a dinner show in NJ, is a great space for receptions (weddings and otherwise), luncheons and dinners, presentations, intimate concerts, community events, and other functions. This space has an adjoining caterer’s kitchenette and access to plenty of restrooms.

You can rent theater seating at our live entertainment venue as well. Within the beautiful décor and under the elegant crystal chandeliers are 1,030 comfortable seats. Every one of them has plenty of leg room and an excellent view of the stage. The excellent acoustics help audience members hear every nuance of the comedy shows, live entertainment acts and concerts performed. The auditorium is ADA-compliant, with wide aisles, wheelchair access, and assisted-listening devices.


When the house lights dim and 130+ stage lights come up, the audience will be watching your show on The Strand’s well-equipped and maintained stage. Our experienced stagehands will help you make use of our eight available line sets for hanging your scenery, will focus and operate the lights, and will give your voices an extra boost with our sound system. When the theater playor concert calls for it, you can house your orchestra in our New Jersey theater’s 25-person pit. When the actors are not onstage, they can prepare in one of The Strand’s six well-appointed dressing rooms or relax (and eat) in our cantina. Also available backstage are bathrooms with showers, and speakers in every room to listen to the onstage action.
