Where Entertainment Lives

The Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild has proudly served the community for more than 40 years! We promote the expression of ideas, foster creativity, and embrace everyone. Since 2005, our Grand Theatre has been a place to entertain, educate and experience the arts. Theatre is about storytelling, self-discovery, and shared experiences, and we are always honored to play our part! We look forward to a wonderful season.

The Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild’s holiday season opens with the regional premiere of The Chanukah Guest, December 1 through the 4 at the Grand Theatre.

Although Bubba (Grandmother in Yiddish) Brayna is almost blind and deaf, she makes the best potato latkes in the village. On the first night of Chanukah, she cooks a special batch for the rabbi, who is coming to visit her. However, Old Bear, teased from hibernation by the smell of latkes, comes to Bubba Brayna’s cottage. When she hears a thumping at the door, she naturally lets in her guest. Only later does she realize she has served her delicious latkes to a bear instead of the rabbi!

The Chanukah Guest highlights universal themes: welcoming guests and generosity while sharing Chanukah customs and traditions. This delightful play by Jenna Zark, based on Eric A. Kimmel’s book of the same name, is great for all ages and a fun holiday show!
