We visit family in the area on a regular basis and have seen a nice variety of entertainment available for a city the size of Wausau.

The Arts Block/Grand Theater and the Wausau Performing Arts Foundation staff are a treasure located in the north central region of Wisconsin that offer locals and visitors fine entertainment throughout the year. My wife and I have never been disappointed with the offerings at the Grand and have had the opportunity to be intimately involved in scheduling and participating in... More

Magestic yet intimate old style theatre that hosts current talent and relevant shows. Well attended and well kept. Rumor is the dressing room is haunted but I've been there many times and have never spotted a ghost.

Old style theater in immaculate shape, we went for a concert for our anniversary while visiting Wisconsin. Great sound and seating and located right in the center of town around a park. Plenty of nearby restaurants to make a night of it. The Grand offers pre show and intermission cafe and bar services.

Beautiful historical building - if you are in town try to catch a show if only to see the inside. You actually have legroom unlike the show I saw in NYC. No bad seat in the house

Our family has been taking advantage of the superb Grand Theatre events for many, many years. The Arts Block in totality is a shining gem in our magnificent north woods. Each season offers something for most everyone. Several performances stand high in our memory...Chris Botti and the Mikwaukee Symphony were as good as it gets!!! We want to use this... More

This is a modern theater with an old time feel. I once worked shows there and have viewed the ins and outs of the place. The crew works very hard to put on the very best shows.
