Comments

Hello, I hope this message reaches the appropriate party as email and phone messages have not been answered. I am curious about renting your auditorium. Please send me a private message to discuss availability as well as follow up questions we have that we're not found on your website. Thank you.

The Griswold Auditorium is a historic, 600-seat civic theater nestled on the banks of the picturesque Kalamazoo River in Downtown Allegan.

Allegan Community Players

In accordance with State and City and due to CDC Recommendations, the 7th Annual One Acts Festival scheduled for the weekend of March 27th at the Griswold Auditorium have been postponed indefinitely. We are currently working through a couple of options to be able to bring you our wonderful one acts we have been working so hard on!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and wash your hands!

[03/16/20]   Unfortunately, due to the CDC recommendations to cancel gatherings of 50 or more for the next eight weeks, we regret that we must cancel all March and April performances at the Griswold Auditorium.

The City of Allegan and Positively Allegan remain committed to increasing live performances at the Griswold, and hope to reschedule the cancelled shows, and announce new ones, in the coming weeks.

Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/coronavirus.

Cabaret Band Show

The Cabaret Band Show is sad to announce we are shutting down production for the closing weekend due to the novel Coronavirus. While we were able to operate within the bounds of last week’s Executive Order and even practice social distancing within the theater itself, it is out of an abundance of caution that we lower the curtain for this year.

We appreciate those that were able to attend our first weekend and are grateful to have had the opportunity to share our love and joy of music. As one can imagine, we are devastated.

Those who purchased tickets for the closing weekend will have their purchases honored with vouchers for the 2021 closing weekend performances. Our dates for next year have been set for March 19, 20, 26, and 27.

Please be sure to follow us on our page for future updates, pictures, and videos.

Thank you for your prayerful understanding.

With all our love,

Cabaret Band Show

🌟 Cabaret Band Show Announcement 🌟

Due to our small town location in a healthy area, theater size, and health of our cast, we have made the decision to move forward with our performances on March 13, 14, 20, and 21. However, we highly respect the decision of those who choose not to attend the show due to COVID-19. Persons who have purchased tickets will be granted a voucher for opening night of our 2021 production next year; refunds will not be provided.

Griswold Auditorium – Allegan

This 650-seat theater was built in 1929 with money left by one of the community’s founding mothers and lumber baroness Marilla Griswold. Even though she died in 1919 in an apartment a few blocks away, many question whether it is her spirit that still lingers. Another possible ghost is that of Abbie Smith, who was very active with the Allegan Community Players, Michigan’s oldest theater company. Accounts of strange activity have been reported within the theater, specifically the stage area, including the sound system cutting out completely during recitals and other events (with no reasonable explanation for the outage).

The Allegan Community Players are back at it again!

Announcing our next show, and auditions for, Leading Ladies!

Auditions will be held at the Griswold Auditorium October 2nd and 3rd from 6pm-8pm. The cast includes 5 male roles and 3 female roles. For the audition, you will be reading from parts of the script, so no need to memorize a monologue!

"In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there's a wide world out there, but it's not until she meets "Maxine and Stephanie" that she finally gets a taste of it."
