The Grand Theater has suspended all public performances and events beginning today, March 13 through April 3.

Theater officials said in a news release that they believe this is the best decision for local audiences, artists and the community.

The shutdown impacts this weekend’s performances of Waitress,- highly anticipated show at the venue.

This weekend’s Waitress tickets will be automatically transferred to the new date, and patrons will be contacted by The Grand with the new date and time as soon as it is scheduled.

Patrons should contact The Grand’s Ticket Office at 715-842-0988 if you wish to do any of the following:

  1. Exchange your tickets to another performance (fees may apply for performances that are priced differently).
  2. Exchange your tickets to a gift certificate to be used for future performances, including events next season.
  3. Donate the cost of your tickets to the Performing Arts Foundation to help with future programming.
  4. Receive a refund.
