Our son was singing in the WI State Men's Choir at this venue. This theatre had so much charm. While the lobby and restrooms were modern the theatre was filled with charm. The beautiful stage, red seats and balcony took you back in time. Located right in the heart of downtown there was plenty of parking within a few blocks.... More

My wife/I "discovered" the Grand Theater about 10 years ago after moving up from Illinois. It is truly a remarkable venue for a wide variety of entertainment. Annually, they book artistic performers from across the globe.

The Grand Theatre, part of Wausau's Artsblock, is the gem of downtown. Across from the 400 block, where iceskating is free all winter, the theatre hosts a wide variety of musicians, actors and dancers from around the world. No need to travel to Milwaukee or the Twin Cities for entertainment. We have The Grand! .

We have gone to multiple shows at The Grand and have always been impressed. The seats are plenty roomy, we have not found any seats to be bad, and the volunteers are always helpful. If you ever have the opportunity to see a show or concert at The Grand Theater, it is definitely worth it!

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.
