very nostalgic, you have that old time theater feel. Great place for local talent to perform as well. Affordable.

The theater is beautifully restored and carries a nice complement of shows on the schedule. The Halloween ghost tour was unlike any other I've seen and is definitely worth a visit!

The Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is one of the most remarkably preserved historic theatres in the country - you can feel yourself transported back in time when you sit in this marvelous place. The decor is remarkable and the preservation transports you back in time to a lost era in theatre-going. As a theatre goer, this is as... More

While visiting Oshkosh, we decided to see the play Blythe Spirit at the Grand Opera House. We enjoyed the play very much and also loved to see the very well preserved building. The community has done a great job of saving and treasuring the building. And those involved also love to tell the Opera House's story.....

Lots of great shows every year in this beautifully restored theater! They schedule a variety of entertainment, with something that will appeal to varying tastes. When you are there, it is easy to picture this theater back in the days when it hosted vaudeville acts! A very intimate theater!

This unique Victorian era opera house is a visual and acoustical sensation! It has a charmingly quaint and intimate atmosphere. It only seats around 600-700 so it can't attract big shows, but the small shows it does bring in are wonderful. They have totally remodeled the upstairs to include a beautiful lounge with a full bar. The only down side... More

This building is an Oshkosh gem. Located downtown. Once inside you are transported back to a time when live entertainment took the place of tv and movies. Haunted too. Too bad they are not big enough to accommodate broadway style shows. Which limits them and keeps their schedule thin. It's worth going to experience it, at least once.

It is a beautiful old theater that has recently been renovated, so if you can, check out a show to really experience this historical building.
