Chess: In Concert with Gretna Theatre

July 11 @ 2:00 PM - July 20 @ 4:00 PM

Chess in concert July 11-20

Don’t miss this thrilling theatrical event featuring incredible Gretna Theatre performers and select members of the Hershey Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Greg Woodbridge.

Music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, lyrics by Tim Rice

​Featuring the music of ABBA members Andersson and Ulvaeus, as well as lyrics by musical theatre icon Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Aida), this gripping musical was inspired by the political and international spectacle of the 1972 World Chess Championship between American Bobby Fischer and Russian Boris Spassky. Set in the 1980’s at the height of the Cold War, Chess illustrates how something as trivial as a game of chess can mean so much more when fueled by the threats and propaganda of nations at war.
