Always love The Grand. I've been to many different events there. Concerts, musicals, plays, theater to name a few. A historical venue that's been renovated and well maintained.

We went to see Monty Python's Spamalot last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! The theater has been renovated recently and is beautiful! We'll definitely be going to more events at The Grand.

First visit to this locatkon was to see Carpenters Christmas. The building was awesome. Reminds me of Fox Theater in Atlanta. More renovations planned in 2018. Easy parking. Comfortable seats.

Saw the Nutcracker here. The theater is beautiful and acoustics were good. A few stairs to the balcony, so avoid that if stairs are a problem. Parking a bit difficult, but overall a great venue.

We have attended numerous events at the Grand Opera House, including the Nutcracker, symphony performances, comedians, and solo and group singing acts. We have sat upstairs, downstairs and the balconies. For solo artists such as comedians or singers the box seats are PERFECT. They are...More

Suggest you call the box office (478-301-5470). I know they conduct group tours. They can tell you if there is any possibility for you on that date.
