Elegant theater

The inside of this theater is beautiful. Painting on the ceiling. It is small so all seats offer good views. Good shows. Always a pleasure to go there.

Kudos to all the cast of Wizard of Oz as the holiday show this year. The volunteers were welcoming and helpful and we truly enjoyed our evening. Shout out to Wicked Witch/ Miss Gulch who stayed in character despite fighting for a voice! Loved her. Scarecrow & Lion were exceptional too. Toto played a great part, although it was pretty...

What a fabulous performance. The actors playing Buddy Holly and the Crickets did a wonderful show-the best I've ever seen at the Grand. Music was authentic and the story well written. The theater presents some good musicals each year but this the best we've seen.

Visited the Grand Theatre this past weekend and saw a fantastic performance of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story starring Zachary Stevenson. Stevenson was impeccable as Buddy and allowed a guy like me, in his 30'sm to be transported back to see what living that era was like. The Grand Theatre was very beautiful, and quite intimate which I like. The... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. There are many restaurants nearby to eat before and after your visit. I would highly recommend taking in a play or musical performance at 'The... More

I attended a preview performance of The Mountaintop, a fictionalized play about Dr. Martin Luther KIng, Jr. The play is powerful, indeed, and the acting and production were first rate. The ambience of the theatre is comfortable and you can buy and take drinks in to the theatre with you - very civilized. The lobby could use and overhaul, but... More

Saw the opening play for the Grand Theatre this season. It was Fly me to the Moon. It was fantastic! The two stars of the play were Carmen Grant and Deidre Gillard-Rowlings. Both were brillant. The play was filled with humor and had some great messages along the way as well. The Grand was off to a great start with... More

We love The Grand Theatre! Generally the shows are amazing. We were a little disappointed with the Christmas show this year...I don't want to rip apart anyone in the show...just that the Children were very hard to understand at times not sure why...but overall it was pretty good. The Set was amazing and the Adult Actors were great! Just pretty... More

Seriously was looking forward to seeing this performance today and we found the theatre nice. At the start of the play we thought that the set was very well done. We did however notice right away that the narrator had a similar sound and cadence of the fellow from Letters from Wingfield Farms. It was almost as if he was... More
