Striking, intriguing and altogether inspiring with a myriad of possibilities. The Great Hall can be transformed into the ideal setting for a wedding reception, cocktail party, intimate performance, or corporate seminar. Enjoy gorgeous daytime views or an evening under our stars for a complete, one-of-a-kind experience.
From the moment they enter the Great Hall, a sense of awe and amazement embraces guests as they gaze at the stars 30 feet above, anchored by 14 gold pillars at the perimeter of the room, and marvel at the terrazzo flooring artistically placed in overlapping fields of color. With a multitude of room set-ups, the 4,300 square foot facility can be modified to accentuate almost any event.
Wedding receptions and parties receive the highest of praise from hosts and guests alike as festivities are enjoyed within one large area, including elegant catered food service, professional beverage service from ArtsBar, stage set-up for entertainment, not to mention plenty of dance floor space. There's nothing more appealing than an overhead view of your event as you stroll up to the second floor and take in the entire scene from the balcony level. Your special event will be worry-free as our professional staff looks after even the smallest detail.
Capacity: 220 for a sit down meal / 400 for a stand-up reception.
"Because of your efforts, our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect. The theater was beautiful and the staff was very instrumental in helping us in the logistics of the ceremony, musical presentation and the photography. While the Great Hall was large enough to accommodate our family and guests, its elegant arrangement allowed everyone to feel welcome, comfortable and included at our reception. Choosing Wausau Performing Arts Grand Theater and Great Hall truly made our wedding day one we will always remember."
