Located at 3610 Grandel Square, in the heart of the Grand Center Arts District, the historic Grandel Theatre is currently under renovation and once complete will host a multitude of artistic endeavors, including: main stage productions; visual art exhibits; resident-offered dance classes and educational programs; and live jazz nightly as the future home of The Dark Room. In cooperation with Grand Center Inc., the Kranzberg Arts Foundation will operate and manage The Grandel, creating significant partnerships to bring exciting new theatre, dance, and concert programming to The Grandel’s stage.
“The Kranzberg Arts Foundation is working closely with our district and community partners to ensure The Grandel is a true example of diversity in audience, programming and organizational use,” said Chris Hansen, Executive Director of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation. “The opportunity to bring this historic venue back online for the community is thrilling and humbling for our organization.”
The Kranzberg Arts Foundation is excited to welcome Ashleyliane Dance Company, Karlovsky & Company Dance, Metro Theater Company, and Harvey Lockhart’s new project “Heal Center for the Arts” as residents of The Grandel.
The first phase of the venue’s remodel will include renovating the lobby and common areas, which will become the new home of The Dark Room Gallery, stage and restaurant, as well as a patio overlooking the soon-to-come Grand Center Arts Academy Plaza, and should be complete as early as February 2017. Main stage shows in the renovated theatre are expected by late spring or early summer of 2017.
