WORTH THE WAIT


unstoppable ENTERTAINMENT Dear Friends, The 2021-2022 season is approaching, and it feels like the moment of return. However, The Grand never left, and you never left, either. You attended limited-capacity and livestream performances. Donors and sponsors stepped up, allowing us to present captivating performing arts opportunities when we all needed them the most. This season, The Grand is looking forward to seeing you shoulder to shoulder again for the first time since March 2020. Much like the long-awaited Festival Foods Marquee and Message Center (exterior improvements you'll see upon returning to the theater), we have been looking forward to full-capacity performances that suit this living, breathing piece of history. With that said, masks are still strongly recommended if you are not fully vaccinated. Your experience is important to us. Between jazz, comedy, country, and top-tier tribute shows, the 20212022 season has something for everyone. Postponed performances like Christmas with The Four Phantoms will finally get their time to shine; but newly announced artists will catch your eye as well. Flip through this digital brochure and return to it often, as performances will be added throughout the season. We look forward to welcoming you back to our treasured venue.

Joseph Ferlo President and CEO Director, The Grand Oshkosh
