WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The month of October will be a busy one for staff at the Grand Theater in Wausau. There are seven shows, including three which are sold out. The Grand Theater’s regular 2022/23 season is also underway.

Grand Theater Executive Director Sean Wright said the season is off to a fantastic start.

“I think people are just excited for a normal season at the Grand. Obviously, you know, we were back to business last year, but lots of reschedules and carryovers. This one feels, you know, as normal as the theater world ever feels,” said Wright.

October performances include:

  • Tom Segura – Monday, Oct. 3 (SOLD OUT)
  • The Doo Wop Project – Friday, Oct. 7
  • The OK Factor & Jaerv – Tuesday, Oct. 11
  • The Ultimate Queen Celebration (SOLD OUT) – Thursday, Oct. 13
  • The Book of Mormon (SOLD OUT) – Tues-Wed, Oct. 18-19
  • Lonestar – Thursday, Oct. 20
  • American Ballet Theatre Studio Co. – Saturday, Oct. 29

“I am so excited to have the American Ballet Theatre Studio Co. here at the end of the month. I mean, these are the next generation of world ballet stars and they’re going to be right here at the Grand,” said Wright.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 3, the Grand Theater will also implement a new security screening system. In total, approximately 130,000 people are expected to visit The Grand this 2022/23 season.

Wright said the new process will be quicker for patrons while ensuring a safe environment.

“When you enter the Grand, we invested in a system where you don’t have to take the keys out you don’t take your cell phone out anything. You just walk through. Really it’s not a metal detector, it’s a cryptid weapon sure system,” said Wright.
