First of all, the Blue Gate Theater is a neat experience. The people are so friendly and the atmosphere makes you feel as if you just made a few hundred new friends. The entertainment is excellent. We have gone for plays in the past but this time, we saw ventriloquist David Pendleton. This guy is incredible! We laughed so hard... More

The Webb Family & Glory & Majesty of Christmas show was great. A must see. It was $43. for 1 & well worth it. Dinner was family style & Amish made. Very good. Planning trip & show in May to see Half Stitched.

We have made the New Year's Eve show at the Blue Gate an annual event. Dailey and Vincent were the headliners, and the show is just marvelous! There are two additional acts which change every year, but it is unfailingly good, wholesome entertainment.

We attended the Blue Gate New Tears Eve Extravaganza. It was a wonderful show. Great comedian, two super Blue Grass groups. Wonderful way to send out 2013 and bring in 2014. Would highly recommend Blue Gate shows all year long. The Amish dinner prior to the show was amazing.

We saw the Confession which is a storoy about the Amish. It was very well done. A couple of the cast were excellent with all the rest at least very good. The music was outstanding and a couple in the cast had exceptional voices. It is not Broadway; but an enjoyable time if you are ever in this area.

I've eaten here several times before and always felt the quality of food and service was good. Recently we ate there again with some friends of ours and I was very disappointed in the quality and quantity of the food. The service was good, but the food was average for the prize we paid. We have never seen a Theater... More

Saw two different shows at the theater. Actors are not the best quality. The theater seating is o.k. as the place is not very big at all. Sound tends to be too loud for the size of the place. Workers are friendly. Attendees seem to be mostly "seasoned citizens", but don't let that stop you from attending. Overall, not a... More

We enjoyed our two shows at this theater. Staff were friendly and helpful. The stage play was Amish-themed and very professional. The bluegrass show (Dailey and Vincent) was fantastic.
