STAY AT HOME

ACTIVITIES!

While we are all stuck at home social distancing, Gretna Theatre is providing some fun things for you to do, whether you’re an adult or a kid! During difficult times, people often turn to the arts for hope, inspiration, entertainment, and a vision for how to move forward. 

READ THE SHOW SCRIPTS

We requested special permission from the authors of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES and DINO to send you excerpts of the scripts that you can read at home. We want to hear from you; Let us know what you think! We hope you'll join us to see how they turn out fully produced live.

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

 More Information →

By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson

 

The most popular of the Sherlock Holmes adventures! When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes and Watson are summoned to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles. This sublimely funny adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes story is sure to have you howling of laughter.

DINO! AN EVENING WITH DEAN MARTIN

 More Information →

By Armen Pandola

Featuring music by Dean Martin

 

When a severe blizzard blankets the East Coast, Dino's band gets stuck out of town. Rather than disappoint his fans, Dean Martin brings us an intimate evening filled with personal stories and classic songs including, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "That's Amore" and more. For a short while, the man behind the legend reveals the humor, warmth and casual cool that marked his rise from his Italian-only speaking immigrant childhood to become one of the biggest legends in entertainment.
