We had an excellent time in Shipshewana as usual. The Inn is a great place to stay and great breakfast. Great food at the Blue Gate and enjoyed our first play at the Theatre. We will be back for another show for sure.

It was great. My wife and I loved it. Some of the best music we have heard in a long time. I was very impressed with the way they all played their instruments. We also love Lindsay Reith's book. JOURNEY ON.

This is our second time attending one of the Blue Gate Theatre productions and by far a must attraction in Shipshewana, Indiana. The theatre and buffet package is the best value with outstanding play and mouth watering Amish food!!
