Grand Theater in Wausau

We have been to several concerts there and have never been disappointed. You can pick your own seats from a chart and we have never had a bad one

I watch the venues for top Broadway shows in the WI area and have seen several at the Grand and have never been disappointed. There isn't a bad seat in the house as far as musicals go, and the seats themselves are very comfortable too! They have a wonderful staff that are knowledgeable and friendly and that is another plus,... More

The Grand Theater brings professional entertainers to Wausau. Ranging from Marty Stuart to Danu to Russian Ballet and you get a sense of the range of entertainment that The Grand offers. With only about 1500 seats the acts are up close and personal. Each year it's a pleasant surprise to discover the acts that will perform at The Grand.

We attended the Bob and Tom Comedy all-stars. The sound for stand up comedy was excellent. The interior is fabulous.

Lots of great shows, the price isn't always right, but I constantly watch to see who is coming and when the price is right it is certainly worth checking out a show.

We took our children yearly to the Grand Theater to see ballet, musicals, and performers. It was always a positive experience. My most recent visit was not as positive. We went with another couple to hear the blue grass band "Trampled By Turtles", one of our favorite bands. Unfortunately, the staff at The Grand were unaware of what a "Turtles"... More

Thanks so much for your review. We greatly appreciate your support of The Grand, and hate that you had a negative experience at Trampled by Turtles. One item that I'm working on as I begin my tenure here at The Grand is making sure that we provide the best customer experience for all of our shows, be it the highest... More

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.

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.
