I've been to shows in bigger cities and we should be very thankful for this wonderful venue! I don't think I realized what a gem we had until seeing the size of other venues that charge much more for tickets!

The Grand Theater is a beautiful old theater that hosts a wide variety of acts from national shows and comedians to kids shows that local school kids are bussed in to see. The employees are always very friendly and knowledgeable.

The Grand Theater accommodates all types of shows - bands, musicals, dance recitals... The most recent event I attended was the performance of The Nutcracker by CWSB.

We were at the Grand to see a performance by a very popular group and the awaiting crowd was filling the entrance. We were able to get pre-show drinks and snacks with little wait. Most others were wanting to rush the doors to get to their seats...why they are all reserved? the show was great the intermissions were timely and... More

The place is awesome restoration of a old theater. I am sure that the do not revue the acts that they book but they may want to start. We went to see a tribute band for Fleetwood mac and what a let down. high priced and not even close to the real ones. Sorry we wasted the money.
