If there's a show you want to see and it's playing at The Grand Opera House in Oshkosh...make sure to go! A wonderful and historic venue that is sure to please. They've also recently updated the balcony with some new seating and tables.

Have been there often. Have good selection of venues including national and local talent. Even though some seats are listed as obstructed view, have still found it to be a good seat.

We attended ArtRagous. Our first time in the Opera House and we were impressed. It has been restored nicely and the sound quality was everything we needed. A jewel for Oshkosh.

The Grand is an absolutely beautiful little theater, restored to it's glory (probably better than original) by the good people of the Oshkosh community. It's intimate and comfortable. The bar in the upper level is a good new addition. Catch a show here if you...More

This is a quaint little old-time theater that has live quality shows that make a trip here from wherever well worthwhile. Just pick a performance that fits your fancy, sit back, and enjoy.

As time goes on, I'm becoming more and more of a theatre goer. Part of it is for the shows themselves but (truth be told) another aspect is that I really enjoy discovering / visiting beautiful old restored / preserved places like this one. The...More

An historic building lovingly restored by the people of Oshkosh. The seats are a bit smallish, because they are the original ones and people were, well, smaller back then. If you're a little larger, it would be a good idea to purchase a box seat....More

We enjoyed a performance of "The Spitfire Grill" here and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The theater is smaller and we enjoyed the quaintness of it. Our only complaint was that an usher allowed a couple to be seated in the front row after the lights...More
