The Grand Opera House is known as the premiere historic theatre in Central Georgia, and one of our region’s most cherished cultural gems.  Now a performing arts center of Mercer University, we are proud of our 22 seasons of Broadway touring productions, classical, rock, and country music concerts, stand-up comedy, and a full season of educational programs through our GrandKids series. We also remain committed to hosting outstanding performances by community-based arts and cultural organizations from throughout the region, including the Macon Symphony Orchestra, The Nutcracker of Middle Georgia, and many others.

We strive to keep ticket prices low so that the entire community has access to outstanding events at The Grand, but ticket sales alone only cover a fraction of the funds needed to keep our theatre healthy.  Your investment is essential to our success, helping us achieve a mission that includes:

  • Bringing Broadway to Central Georgia.  The Grand is the only venue in the region to present national tours of Broadway productions.
  • Educating youth through the arts. The GrandKids Arts Education series is one of the top educational outreach programs in Georgia pairing professional productions with curriculum objectives. Each year more than 12,000 students in 17 counties benefit from the educationally-enriched arts programming we present.
  • Supporting “stars” in our community. We are proud to showcase our community and the next generation of Macon talent through numerous dance, church and school groups, as well as the Macon Telegraph Golden Eagle Awards.

Macon is blessed with an abundance of great arts and services organizations, and as you consider your philanthropic options we hope that you will choose to help us continue the great work we’ve been doing for 22 seasons now.  We really cannot do it without you.
