SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Each and every week Dick Wolfsie shares a story that is unique to central Indiana.

This week Dick popped into the Strand Theatre in Shlebyville to learn more about the theater’s 103-year history from the theater’s director David Finkel.

“We do about 140 performances a year with an all-volunteer crew and a wonderful 369-seat theater,” said Finkel.

The theater was renovated in 2007, reopening in 2008.

The next set of performances at the theater is simply magical.

Mat LaVore will be hitting the stage this week and hosting “Magic & Mystery with Mat LaVore.”

LaVore met with Dick at the theater to show off a few tricks he had up his sleeve.
