“Excellent entertainment, quaint setting”
Review of Gretna Theatre

Gretna Theatre
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 June 2013

I have attended shows here for the past several summers, and have always been impressed by the quality of the performances, from set design and staging to singing and acting. All have been top-notch shows. The theatre itself is nestled in the woods in an open pavilion, surrounded by benches and beautifully gardened grounds. A charming gift shop and an ice cream shop are near the theatre. If you are in the area during the summer, I would strongly recommend seeing a show here. It is an afternoon of pure enjoyment!

We love Mount Gretna and go there yearly for a family reunion. The town is magical especially if you are 3 years old. The lake, the ice cream at the Jigger shop, the fairy garden and numerous play grounds all are wonderful to a three year old but an out door theater is what she talks about most. Every performance we have seen there is top notch.

This place will fill your spirit with nostalgia - it is reminiscent of going back to the good old days with outdoor theatre. There is a must visit Jigger Shop nearby for ice cream before, after or during performances. But most of all it is the caliber of the actors/actresses that make this venue pop. Do not miss it!

This is such a nice place to go and enjoy great entertainment. It is an experience everyone should try at least once. Well worth the ticket price. The next best part is just walking down to the Jigger Shop for ice cream.

Gretna is an artsy town with charming victorian era houses and two theaters. The Timbers is a dinner theater with good food. Gretna Theater is a quaint outdoor venue. The have curtains to draw if the weather requires it, otherwise the shows are done in the open air- though under roof. They recently performed Grease and displayed beautiful classic cars from the 50's. People walking the paths of Gretna often stop and watch for a few minutes before moving on.
