Ohio Amish Country Getaway be sure to make reservations to see the musical, comedy, The Confession. The musical is based on the Beverly Lewis best selling novel. I had the opportunity to see this musical last week in Shipshewana, Indiana. I wasn't sure, knowing the plot of the book, how they could turn this novel in to a musical comedy but they did. I laughed, I cried, and was awestruck by some of the songs. There was one number where three women sang and the harmonies brought chills to me. The characters of the butler and the maid had us laughing quite a bit. The story is of a young woman who discovers that while she has been raised in an Amish home she is adopted. She is on a quest to find her birth mother during the play. While the story is fiction you do learn some things about the Amish lifestyle.
Starting June 7, 2012 The Confession will debut in Sugarcreek, Ohio at the Carlisle Inn. There will be afternoon matinees as well as evening performances when most of Amish Country is closed. This Amish love story/musical will be running through December 15, 2012 and is something that will appeal to both men and women.
Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast has created a package the weekend of September 21, 2012. Guests will be taken by bus to see The Confession and have dinner prior to the show on Saturday night. It is part of a 10th Anniversary celebration for the innkeepers.
Guests may book rooms at the bed and breakfast for any of the dates that this musical is running and the innkeepers will assist them in getting tickets for the show and also dinner. This is one show that you will not want to miss!
