About the event
Gretna Theatre will be hosting its annual gala – “From Hollywood To Broadway” – on Saturday October 27th, 2018 at the historic Hotel Hershey. The evening will include a champagne reception, seated dinner, live entertainment, a charity auction and much more. We expect over 200 of the area’s most prominent citizens to attend and share the common goal of raising awareness and funding for the continuation of are Artistic and Educational Programs.
In today's educational landscape, arts and culture programs have little to no existance in the community. Gretna Theatre is here to answer that call.
Why should you sponsor?
Gretna Theatre, America’s Oldest Summer Theatre and Lebanon PA's only professional theatre, has a mission to enrich and serve its community. Being a Non-Profit, we are more than just producing Broadway shows each summer; we also provide a place to educate thousands of the next generation of artists and enthusiasts through programs for audiences and students of all ages :
- Touring outreach programs for schools that address curriculum based and social topics: Bullying, Historical figures, Diversity/Inclusion.
- Educational workshops for kids and retirement communities such as playwright and dance.
- A Professional Internship Program, which provides early career professionals and paid hands on training opportunity for local artists to work along side Broadway artists.
We rely, however, on your support to be able to continue to achieve the impact we are seeing as described in this quote!
Gretna Theatre has become a way to broaden the horizons of our student body”
