The grand is a beautiful and historical building both inside and out. The party was a great time with a live band in the theater and a DJ in a separate area. Good for all ages!!

We attended the "Live and Let Die Tour" at the Grand Theater. Great venue, friendly volunteer staff, very good bar service. Drinks are a bit pricy. The entertainment was very good. Should be a great year for The Grand with their selection of shows.

Wausau is fortunate to have this lovely, historical venue for theater and music. The Grand Hall compliments the facility and expands its use. It is wonderful to see enthusiastic support for the Arts in Central Wisconsin.

There is no such statue at Grand Theater that I know of. You are either joking or have a different city in mind

Yes, there is. It can be raised and lowered from the orchestra pit and has been used for several venues. We're very fortunate to have Dan Larson as an organist for this beautiful organ!
