House Manager Liz McLeod will dust off the Strand Family Players, who find joy in tossing out a few barbs at the World’s Greatest Professional Declutterer; show you what not to do when your neighbor messes up your garden; and meet an upcycler with a startling new use for cat hair. And down in Abysmal Point, Mrs. Grunden and Lilita make a startling discovery under the floorboards when redecorating the clam shack. Tidying up the music department, Brittany Parker presents a sampling of the outstanding work done by her students in the Strand Take The Stage Program — and you’ll meet special musical guest singer-songwriter Trisha Mason, making her first broadcast appearance in the Midcoast after relocating to Rockland.
