Important to Gretna Music has always been where we are, quietly hiding in the foothills of the Appalachians in the “tiny town that time forgot,” close (not too close) to metropolitan Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Hershey. For over a century the Chautauqua Playhouse has cradled players and listeners on the slope of a gentle hillside under a super-sized ‘coolie hat’ amid a jumble of Queen Anne-style cottages.

The pavilion-style Playhouse has 708 seats and is open on the sides for summer breezes. Seating area is covered as is the stage. Light concessions are available.

About Music at Gretna

Gretna Music has filled the Mt. Gretna Playhouse with music since 1976. At the core of our mission is the great stream of Western music that began a millennium ago in Europe and gathered force as musicians from all countries and continents joined the flow through centuries. Among humanity's greatest achievements, that music has become a universal means of communication that can be enhanced by expressive and creative performance. We try to be courageous explorers of our vast musical universe.
