In accordance with the CDC, WHO, and state and local officials, we have decided to close our administrative offices through the month of April.  During this time, tickets will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on our website. Please allow additional time in response when contacting our box office over the phone. We appreciate your support of America's oldest summer theatre as we navigate this unprecedented situation. 

I do believe Gretna Theatre will be exactly what we need when all of this passes, some fresh air and some fantastic stories. 

  • All exchange fees through May are waived, so you can continue to purchase tickets here with confidence, knowing you have the flexibility to change your plans.

  • Subscriptions still can provide you with the best seats and the biggest discounts here for when we are ready to return to real life and enjoy America’s Oldest Summer Theatre.

  • We hope patrons will remember our non-profit if they are in a place that allows them to make a gift here to support entertainment worker’s jobs and relieve postponed education programs. 

Our staff is working remotely for now, and is available via email and can return phone calls.

To Our Valued Patrons:

I am writing on behalf of the entire Gretna Theatre family to assure you that the health and safety of all who enjoy Gretna Theatre is our priority. There is an understandably high level of concern as the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads.


On March 12, Elizabethtown College notified us they are cancelling all large events planned at the college, which unfortunately includes our highly anticipated concert – THE SUMMER CLUB. Following their decision since they control the venue, and erring on the side of caution, we are unfortunately forced into rescheduling the performance to a later date to be announced shortly.


We understand this news will be disappointing to many, as it is for us. Current ticket holders will be automatically transferred into the new date once we have confirmation from venue and the artists. If you cannot make the new date, you have a few options to exchange tickets. Please contact the box office at (717) 964-3627 for more information.

My goal is to make sure you feel safe so you can focus on one thing: the incredible shows on stage!
