Strathmore Goes International


Strathmore’s Backyard Theater provides innovative performances during Free Summer Outdoor Concerts for adults and a Backyard Theater for children, featuring international artists and musicians who bring eclectic, multicultural flavor to Strathmore’s campus through August.

Children can experience performances inspired by the cultures of Japan, Russia,India and Spain on Strathmore’s tented backyard theater stage during Backyard Theater for Children, every Thursday in July at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Families will see performances by Sin Miedo, Taikoza, Citydance and Barynya. Tickets are $8 for the general public, $7.20 for Strathmore Stars members and free for kids 2 years old and under.

“The Backyard Theater is an event that Strathmore developed in 1990 to reach out to the community and children between ages two and ten. This year we have an international theme where we feature dance and music from different countries. Through this, families are able to experience international cultures without packing a suitcase,” said Strathmore’s Betty Scott.

Performances in Strathmore’s Free Summer Outdoor Concert Series are held Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. at the Gudelsky Concert Gazebo, in front of the historic Mansion. Families can spread out their picnic blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy a range of music, from genre-bending 14-piece orchestras to jazz guitarists and South American pan flute players.

“Additionally, there is an activity packet that families can do together which will take them on a scavenger hunt through the mansion and sculpture garden,” Scott said.
