Try to take in a performance at The Grand. This theater is small and very intimate; a pleasant change from some of the larger theaters.

We went a couple of years ago and saw the Pirates of Pinsanze or however it was spelled. That was a fantastic play. It was not May of this year...it was May a couple of years ago.

The Grand 1894 Opera House is absolutely an incredible place. The history and ambiance or unequaled in this part of America. Also, the quality of shows is as good as anywhere in the USA. It's a great experience and I have never ever heard anyone say anything negative about it.

I love this restored historic theatre. Seeing Liza Minelli was a true dream come true, and it is so beautiful.

Attractive but not ornate 110 year-old opera house. Good acoustics. Seating comfortable, although knee-space limited. Well staffed by devoted volunteers. Attended symphony concert by very good community orchestra and guest pianist.

Go back in time and enjoy theater, music or any kind of performance at the Galveston Opera House. Beautifully restored and wonderfully designed so the visual experience is as good as the auditory.
