Reno, Nev. - Today, Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) announced an opportunity to bid the historic Grand Theatre farewell and welcome in the new venue in style. The #ShareYourStory initiative invites the general public to share their experiences of the theatre by submitting their stories online and having them shared across social media using #ShareYourStory. Stories can be submitted beginning today through Friday, July 28. Five winning stories will be selected and those storytellers will win an invite to a special sneak peek of the Grand Theatre before it opens and a pair of show tickets to the show of their choice.

“The Grand Theatre has a long and storied history and, while we aren’t saying goodbye to that history, we are certainly ready to start the next chapter,” said Tracy Mimno, general manager at GSR. “Share Your Story is an exciting way for everyone to share their favorite experience – whether it’s seeing their favorite artist, performing on stage or even just sharing a memory with someone special.”

Stories can be submitted online here. GSR will share the stories submitted on the GSR blog and across its social media platforms using #ShareYourStory. The five winners selected on Wednesday, July 29 will be invited to attend an exclusive sneak peek of the new venue and will also receive a pair of show tickets to the show of their choice before Dec. 27, 2015.
