Saw the Nutcracker here. The theater is beautiful and acoustics were good. A few stairs to the balcony, so avoid that if stairs are a problem. Parking a bit difficult, but overall a great venue.

The theater is absolutely beautiful! I have seen so many wonderful shows here and I am so excited that the seating is currently being redone because it was very tight. Hopefully there will now be some more leg room.

Drove down to spend a night in Macon to see a concert here. What a great atmosphere! The only strange thing is the drinking rule but it certainly wasn't a problem...just strange. In all, we loved the place.

The grand is a "Grand Ole Dame of The South." In 1908, a production of Ben Hur was shown. A treadmill was installed in the stage to make the live horses and chariots really move. Houdini used the trap doors; one still is used to...More

Visit here regularly to attend concerts and plays. The restoration is very impressive. The only negative would be the temperature control. Due to difficulty in maintaining even temps throughout the building.

Suggest you call the box office (478-301-5470). I know they conduct group tours. They can tell you if there is any possibility for you on that date.

I personally have never sat in those seats, but I've never heard anyone complain about sightlines, with the exception of the boxes.
