Helpful Tips

Bring a pillow

Consider bringing a pillow if you like a little cushion.

First Listen!

First Listen are free pre-concert mini-performances by our area’s most talented youth musicians.  We partner with the Women’s Symphony Association of Lancaster to present finalists from their Young Artists Competition on our First Listen series. They occur before most of our Sunday concerts.  Please check each concert page for more details.

Parking is Free

Parking guards will be around to assist you.  Handicapped parking in front and behind the playhouse is limited.


Restrooms can be found in the lower level of the Playhouse, entered from outside.  There is also a single handicapped-friendly restroom stage right (if you are looking at the stage, it is to the left).

Rain or Shine

Performances are rain or shine.  If extreme weather causes a change in the status of a performance, an announcement will be posted on our home page and sent via email to all ticket buyers with details on rescheduling or cancellation, and ticket exchange or refund policy.

What to Wear

Come as you please with attire suitable for the temperature. The Playhouse is covered but open on the sides. Big ceiling fans ease the heat on hot, summer days.


In addition to the eateries in and around Mt. Gretna, the Playhouse also has a concession stand! We sell various drinks and snacks, such as water, coffee drinks, soda, and candy, both before the performance and during intermission. The inviting smell of our delicious popcorn is a staple of our performance nights in the playhouse!
