Six Reasons To See A Show At The Grand 1894 Opera House

Six reasons to see a show at The Grand 1894 Opera House:

  1. No seat is further than 70 feet from the stage.
  2. The acoustics in this 1894 theatre are amazing.
  3. The close proximity to the stage allows you to see the facial expressions of the entertainers without binoculars.
  4. Even the seats that are considered “obstructed” view, making them less expensive, are good.
  5. You can purchase an adult beverage in one of their “sippy cups” and bring it in the theatre.
  6. You might actually run into the performers in downtown Galveston at one of the area restaurants or shopping.
