Consistently fantastic shows in a classic venue for a reasonable cost. Always something on the go, be it with an annual subscription or individual events. Lastly, an extremely flexible and cooperative ticket exchange program for subscription holders. Well worth the money.

Great place and local productions are often a real find. Parking is sketchy at best .. expect a long walk and to pay dearly for it. Not enough bathrooms for women (as always) ... buying a subscription is a great way to get cheap tickets.

The Grand is quaint and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. It can be very intimate and interactive due to it's size. I generally love going to the theatre and the Grand has had some really great plays. I wouldn't get season's tickets though, as some of their plays have been a bit disappointing.

This was a concert at The Grand.Beautiful old theatre - gorgeous ceiling and no bad seats in the house. Nice bar upstairs - stairs as well as an elevator to the second level. Very friendly volunteers. Mesha was her usual brilliant self. Loved her presentation,

As a season ticket holder, I am always amazed at the various plays produced that bring so much enjoyment. There have been plays that I have disliked the characters for what they portray which proves that the actors are doing their job! The interior of the theatre is a marvel and with the upgrades that have been done, enrich the... More

Good shows - worth investing for a season ticket - best show this season so far was Elf; The Boeing Boeing presentation in mcManus theater was the best.

This is a good old theater brought up to date. They have several plays a year, most are excellent. Refreshments are available. Parking nearby. Always a pleasant evening.

My family and I went here for ELF! this past Christmas. The theatre itself is lovely, with comfy seating and great sound quality. We would happily return! I recommend bringing a snack in your bag as the cookies and drinks are VERY over-priced!

A historic venue, The Grand Theatre is a wonderful place to see a production, either on the Main Stage or in the smaller McManus Theatre downstairs. The seats are comfortable and the "view" is really quite good when seated virtually anywhere in the house.
