What a fabulous performance. The actors playing Buddy Holly and the Crickets did a wonderful show-the best I've ever seen at the Grand. Music was authentic and the story well written. The theater presents some good musicals each year but this the best we've seen.

Visited the Grand Theatre this past weekend and saw a fantastic performance of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story starring Zachary Stevenson. Stevenson was impeccable as Buddy and allowed a guy like me, in his 30'sm to be transported back to see what living that era was like. The Grand Theatre was very beautiful, and quite intimate which I like. The... More

I attended a preview performance of The Mountaintop, a fictionalized play about Dr. Martin Luther KIng, Jr. The play is powerful, indeed, and the acting and production were first rate. The ambience of the theatre is comfortable and you can buy and take drinks in to the theatre with you - very civilized. The lobby could use and overhaul, but... More

Saw the opening play for the Grand Theatre this season. It was Fly me to the Moon. It was fantastic! The two stars of the play were Carmen Grant and Deidre Gillard-Rowlings. Both were brillant. The play was filled with humor and had some great messages along the way as well. The Grand was off to a great start with... More

We love The Grand Theatre! Generally the shows are amazing. We were a little disappointed with the Christmas show this year...I don't want to rip apart anyone in the show...just that the Children were very hard to understand at times not sure why...but overall it was pretty good. The Set was amazing and the Adult Actors were great! Just pretty... More

Seriously was looking forward to seeing this performance today and we found the theatre nice. At the start of the play we thought that the set was very well done. We did however notice right away that the narrator had a similar sound and cadence of the fellow from Letters from Wingfield Farms. It was almost as if he was... More

I have been here for some really interesting shows. This theatre hosts many more Canadian grown and made shows which is great to see The seating is old but comfortable, food options include massive cookies which are fun, there is a small bar in the upper floors and mini bars on the lower. A small lounge is beside the upper... More

The performance captured the story and feelings of the characters flawlessly. Outstanding performance - the sets were simple and effective, letting the characters shine through. The theatre seating is small and intimate. You are welcome to take your beverage in with you.
