Terrific place to see any performance! I have had seats downstairs, front, back, balcony, it makes no difference it is a very intimate venue with great sight lines. And the ticket prices are very reasonable. Parking nearby is not a problem. Have dinner and see a show. Support the Arts and local businesses.

I've seen a comedy show, an acoustic soloist competition, and Sawyer Fredericks here within the last 6 months. The Grand rocks! Who needs Philadelphia when there are so many options right here in Wilmington?

It would be difficult, maybe impossible, to find a better small venue for live music. The architecture is lush & beautiful, the acoustics are superb, and the history of the building is impressive.

I attended "The Jungle Book," part of the children's summer series, with my two young children today. Frankly, the experience was just sad. I am currently an early childhood educator and have a professional background in educational theater. I think exposure to the arts is vital, and I expected some noise and engagement from the young audience. But the shouting... More

Perfect setting for an incredible Opera Festival! Beautiful theater, great acoustics and performances. The Grand hosts much more than opera: comedy, symphonies, dance, rock and roll, jazz, folk music, rising stars and entertainment legends. If you haven't seen a performance at the Grand yet, do soon.

We love The Grand! Every season is filled with more shows we are interested in seeing than we can fit into our schedule. Plus, it's a great local venue with lots of old-time ambience.
