Spring 2015 Fashion


Inspired by an abundance of local talent in both boutiques and community theaters like the historic Earl Smith Strand on Marietta Square to the Dancing Goat in Johns Creek, actors aren’t the only ones playing dress up. No matter if you choose a matinee or night on the town, here’s your ticket to looking good. Once you’ve got the award-winning outfit, it’s time to see a show!

A noted landmark on the historic Marietta Square, the Strand got its start as a major motion picture house in 1935 until 1976. Then in 2003, the nonprofit organization Friends of The Strand was formed and began a capital campaign to bring back the theatre to its original Art Deco glory, with a grand reopening in 2009. Now the red seats regularly fill for guests to screen films as well as watch live theatrical productions, with upcoming performances of “Legally Blonde Jr.” scheduled for May.

Walking through the theatre’s lobby, you can almost imagine the early nights when the marquee outside was first lit. Experience it for yourself this season with a visit to the vintage atmosphere of the upstairs Lumière Lounge. In true fashion, the theatre is paying homage to the days of old with the silent fi lm inspired piano bar and lounge, open Friday and Saturday nights with specialty cocktails. And because the theatre is anchored on the lively square, there’s ample options for grabbing a bite before or after the show. Visit earlsmithstrand.org or call the box office at 770-293-0080 for a full schedule and tickets.

Home to Performing Arts North, The Dancing Goat Theatre in Johns Creek is a more recent addition to the Northside’s arts scene. Inside the small black box style theater, handpainted sets bring rising stars, young and old, to the stage for performances, classes and camps. From any seat in the house, the audience isn’t far from the action, creating an intimate atmosphere to introduce young ones to works by Shakespeare. Margarita Moldovan, founder and education director, enjoys putting a modern twist on these timeless tales. Learn more about PAN at performingartsnorth.com.

Edit Note: Before going to print, the Dancing Goat Theatre unexpectedly had to close, but will hopefully reopen in the future.
