This was a very inspirational. We like to hear the Old Christian songs. It was very well done and enjoyable.

We attended a concert at the Blue Gate Theater featuring a young, pop artist. Unfortunately, much of the music was lost in the very poor acoustics in the long, narrow room. The room appeared similar to several hotel banquet rooms opened into one large room with a relatively low ceiling. The theater seating comprised of crowded rows of cushioned folding... More

We returned to the Blue Gate Theater again for New Year's Eve 2014. It was great as always. Dinner before the shows was also excellent. The three shows of the evening were great. This is a perfect way to celebrate New Year's Eve - low key, safe, and relaxing.

We have been to several programs and concerts at the Blue Gate and have never been disappointed. The theater is very comfortable and there is not a bad seat in the house! The gospel concerts we've seen have been outstanding as well as the play we saw as well as other performers. All programs are suitable for all ages and... More

I saw "Josiah for President" on Nov 28. It was a great show. the actors are super. You fill a paper out & turn in at intermission and they have a drawing at end of intermission for a Blue Gate pie. I won the Chocolate Crunch. It was soooooo good! This is the 4th show I've seen and will be... More

Nice facility, everybody sits close. Good sound and gives you the opportunity to see acts you could never get close to 20 years ago.

My husband loved the Kingston Trio before were married. This was a great time of remembering back over 50 years. Our seats were great and every one was very customer service oriented. Fun night!

I've been to several concerts here and it's a small theater, but the sound is great and there's not a bad seat in the house.

We saw the Kingston Trio. They put on an excellent performance. The theater itself was very nicely done. Good sound and two screens at the sides that also showed the performance so everyone could get close-up views - although not a bad seat in the house. Could best be described as a small, intimate theater. I believe I read they... More

Was there several times. It's on the 3rd. floor at the Blue Gate Restaurant in Shipshewana, IN. The last two times we went for the program presented by Brian Free and Assurance. It was an enjoyable experience and I would consider going again.
