Gretna Theatre Welcomes Shirley Jones, 5/21
Gretna Theatre is excited to present Academy Award winner Shirley Jones for one
performance only on May 21, 2011 as its season kick-off event. "Jones' one woman show, "An Evening of Stories and Songs" will be a ‘stellar' beginning to the season," said Gretna Theatre's producing artistic director Larry Frenock. "We were fortunate to meet Ms. Jones when we attended her performance at the legendary Feinstein's night club while conducting our season auditions in New York City in March," said Frenock. "I asked if she might consider helping us with this fundraising event at Gretna Theatre and she accepted!"
