In 1976, Broadwater Productions, known as Grand Street Theatre, assumed occupancy and transformed the building into Helena’s full-time, year-round community theater.
The Helena/Lewis & Clark County Historic Preservation Commission has recognized the efforts of Grandstreet Theatre in restoring the theater to its former elegance with a historic preservation award in both 1996 and 2001.
Every year Grandstreet Theatre performs at least a half-dozen productions, many of which are of Broadway renowned. It employs a full-time staff as well as provides both an after-school acting program as well as a month-long summer camp.
Stepping into the theatre for one of the live performances is like stepping back into time. There is no better way to experience live theatre than sitting in the completely renovated Grandstreet Theatre.
