The Confession Musical Returns to Ohio Amish Country

If you follow the Amish you have probably read books by the award-winning author, Beverly Lewis.  She wrote a book call The Confession.  The story is based on an Amish girl who finds out she is adopted.  To complicate the situation even further her birth mother is "English", not Amish.  The young woman sets out on a trip to find her birth mother.  Meanwhile the birth mother is dying and is trying to find the daughter she gave up so many years ago.  You may find it hard to believe but this play is a musical comedy!  This musical was adapted from the book by the woman who used to write jokes for Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller and that is how such a serious story line becomes a comedy.  We've seen this musical multiple times and men seem to love it as much as women do.  The Confession will be playing at the Carlisle Theater in Sugarcreek, Ohio.  It runs from June 3 - August 16, 2014.  Afternoon matinees and evening performances are offered but this is a very popular show and tickets should be purchased in advance.
