Gratiot County Players’ Strand Theatre Renovation Project

We Need Your Help!!

Anyone who has driven down Superior Street in downtown Alma during the past several months would have certainly noticed a lot of work being done to the outside of the Strand Theatre – home of the Gratiot County Players.  We are in the middle of a major facelift to the outside of our building thanks to a generous grant from the Gratiot County Community Foundation.  With all that needs to be done, however, we need to raise considerably more money.  All donations are tax deductible, and no amount is too small.

Anyone interested in donating $1,000 or more will get their name(s) on a plaque that will hang on the outside of the building near the new front doors.

Please contact Laurie Harrison at 989-576-0863 if you are interested in donating.  You may also send a check to 217 E. Superior.  Be sure to write “Strand Theatre Renovation” on the outside of the envelope and on the check.



The Mike Duda Memorial Scholarship Fund

This fund was established in memory of Mike Duda, a long time and very talented member of the Gratiot County Players Community. Mike passed away on March 8, 2013 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Mike's love of and contributions to the Gratiot County Players spanned many years and to honor that commitment the scholarship that bears his name is used to assist youth who are interested in the theater, both as audience members and participants. To date many young people have been assisted by this scholarship and we would like to ensure that it continues.

Mike had great artistic talents which he loved sharing with his community. Singing, acting and creative art were his passions. The Gratiot County Players have become his second family and in 2009 he was honored with the Gwen and Carew LeBlanc award in recognition of his outstanding performances and service to the Players. The memories of his quiet grace and highly esteemed talents, both on-stage and behind the scenes at the Strand Theater will ever continue to enrich our lives.
