WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

The Playhouse will open a half-hour prior to performance time. We encourage audience to arrive early to pick up tickets in advance and avoid small town parking congestion.  You can spend time perusing our concessions and merchandise stand, or walk around the historic Pennsylvania Chautauqua neighborhood.


CAN I GET A REFUND OR EXCHANGE?

Actors hate empty seats and we do too! Subscribers may exchange for another date of the same show for free.  Individual Ticket buyers may exchange for another date of the same show for a $5 exchange fee, plus any applicable upgrade based on the cost of the new ticket. We do not offer refunds on tickets.  Unused tickets are able to be donated back to the theatre for a tax-deductable donation up to 24 hours before the performance.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Come as you are and be yourself - We do not have a dress code; We encourage comfortable, cooler casual wear because is the summer time and our theatre is open to the air.

IS THE THEATRE AIR CONDITIONED?

No.  We have new massive industrial overhead fans and coverage from above by a roof and trees to help maintain comfort. 

 

ARE THERE CONCESSIONS AVAILABLE?

Yes. Purchase your snack or cold beverage before/during your visit at the concessions stand, and the revenue helps support Gretna Theatre directly.  

 

WHAT ABOUT MY PHONE?
Phones and electronic devices must be turned off, and texting is not allowed during the performance.  No photography or recording devices are permitted during the performance, but before and after if you snap a great photo, we'd love to see it.  Just tag #gretnatheatre or @gretnatheatre.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER?

Nothing!  The show goes on - Gretna Theatre is completely covered and only open to the outdoors on the rear wall.  

 

HOW DO I BECOME A VOLUNTEER USHER?

For information on our Gretna Branches Volunteer program, view the Volunteer page or call our Administrative Offices.
 

DO YOU HAVE GROUP DISCOUNTS?

We offer discounts for groups of 10 or more starting at 10% off and moving up. Please call 717-964-3322 extension 6, and we'll help you get the best seats and prices for your group.

WHERE CAN I PARK?

There is a free parking lot a short walk in front of the theatre directly off Rt. 117.  Make sure to arrive with enough time to walk to the Playhouse.  You may drop off members of your party in front of the box office and secure parking after if that provides convenience for your group.  There will be parking attendants to help guide.
