The Summer Musical is held upstairs in the Opera House at the Historic Town Hall in Grand Rapids during the Rapids Rally Days weekend in July (second weekend).
For 27 years, it has been our pleasure to bring the “Summer Musical in the Historic Town Hall” to the Grand Rapids community.
We sincerely hope that you enjoyed “Déjà Vu – A 26 Year Retrospective”, performed by a talented all-volunteer cast and crew on July 8th-9th, 2017. They deserve much thanks and praise for their dedication and hard work!
