This fall, Macon’s biggest theater will begin its 24th season.

The Grand Opera House has a Broadway Series, and performances of “Spamalot” will occur on Nov. 14 and 15 at 7 p.m.

In a press release, Grand Opera House Executive Director Gram Slaton said that “2019 is going to be the year we realize ‘A Grander Grand,’ starting at the curb and ending with wild applause for our Broadway and concert selections.”

For those less interested in musical theater, The Grand Opera House also has performances lined up for their Concert Series. The first up is “Live and Let Die”, a tribute to Paul McCartney, on Nov. 18. For the holidays, “Celtic Angels Christmas” takes the stage on Dec. 11.

Other Christmas performances include the 20th “John Berry’s Christmas Concert” on Dec. 22 and “A Christmas Carol” on Dec. 15, performed by the Montana Repertory Theatre.

In addition, The Grand Opera House will also screen many films. To help celebrate Halloween, they’ll host a double-feature of “Nosferatu” and “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” on Oct. 26. Other movies shown this fall include “Casablanca”, “Funny Girl” and  “Love Actually”.

“Many of our films celebrate either their 50th or 75th anniversary in 2018-19,” said Slaton. “These also happened to be landmark years for filmmaking, and it’s great to give these films a fresh look on the big screen, the way they were meant to be seen.”
