Where Entertainment Lives!

The Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild has proudly served the community for 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!
