WATCH YOUR FAVORITE STORIES
COME TO LIFE ON STAGE!
For audiences K-6 and their grown up friends! Gretna Theatre's Kids Series introduces live theatre to kids, some for the very first time. Our shows are often based on popular books to encourage literacy. Transform your Saturday with music, drama, dancing, and lots of laughs. We’re sure these 1 hour shows will beat staying home and watching the same old Saturday morning cartoons!
Performances are 11AM and tickets are $10
Kids Series is sensory-friendly. That means typical “rules of attendance” have been relaxed to accommodate individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and the families who support them. Since shows are in the daytime, the theatre never goes dark or blackout and there aren't any startling or strobing lighting effects. Seating is also completely open and not sold out, so if you need to move in the middle of the show that is ok! You can get up and exit to walk around and break, or even stand in the back with parental supervision without any judgement or worry.

All You-Can-Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. George had been waiting all month for that day, a day almost bigger than his birthday! On Meatball Day, George helped his friend, Chef Pisghetti, cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd had vanished! Something was keeping people away... something pretty big. And that something was Phinneas T. Lightspeed and his speedy Meatballs-o-Matic machine. In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more. Determined to help his friend, George goes on a mission to enter the Chef's meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest in Rome.
