This beautifully restored theater hosts many amazing events throughout the year. I love seeing The Oshkosh Symphony, Alpin Hong, The Oshkosh Community Players, just to name a few. Tickets are very reasonable priced for the quality of shows they have. Also, visiting the Grand Lounge before or after the shows for a beverage is a real treat. They have a... More

The 2 shows I have watched at this venue were wonderful, but didn't compare to the beauty of the old building and unique touches throughout! The ceiling has beautiful paintings and the light fixtures are wonderful! My only negative comment is that if you are a tall individual you might have issues with leg space. But the charm makes it...

We saw a play put on by a local theater group. Nicely done but the big draw is the beautiful theater itself. It seats a little less than 700 people so you are not far from the action no matter were you sit. The staff was very friendly and made our visit fun. There is a full bar upstairs. Everybody... More

They allow event attendees to bring beverages to their seats. We found this policy disconcerting. We would have been quite annoyed had anyone spilled their drink on us.

We have been to the Grand Opera House many times. Most recently, we went to a holiday concert - John Berry. They are also promoting the GOH with happy hours and karaoke on nights when the theater is dark. This is just a beautiful venue - not a bad seat in the house!

The Grand Opera House in downtown Oshkosh is definitely a place to enjoy some great local and national acts. On April 25th I attended a evening show of Bill Blagg, a top notch illusionist and the show was fantastic for the whole family. He got the audience involved in many of his "tricks" and his humor made the time between... More

We've been to many different functions and plays at the Grand. Very nice, restored, upstairs nice too. Could use more women's bathrooms, like most places you visit these days. Easy stairs to get up, nice leg room in the seating area. Lovely evening always when we visit. Check out the beautiful needlepoint tapestry on the wall of main lobby, depicting... More

Beautiful, historic theater. Smaller venue but comfortable, the restoration to the original theater is first class and the acoustics are exceptional. Wide variety of performances, both national touring and local. Weddings are sometimes even held there. I love seeing dance troupes, plays and concerts at The Grand!
