We enjoyed the day immensely as well as the dinner at the Blue Gate restaurant. One thing really stood out: my husband left his Blue Tooth for his cell phone on one... More

This is a comfortable place that attracts a lot of top tier acts. The location offers wonderful dinner/show packages. Makes Shipshewana even more of a destination.

Saw Josiah for President which was well acted, great music and enjoyable. The theater is small, comfortable and what would be considered an intimate interaction with the audience. Would definitely attend another performance at this theater

We saw "Josiah for President". It was very well done. The music was terrific. The theater was clean and comfortable. We can't wait to go back in September for the next play.

It was a packed out crowd - Phil spoke at the Shipshewana Event Center at 1:00 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. His son Alan and Alan's wife was there and Miss Kay also spoke. Phil told us like it is in American and that we better get ready! He is totally sold out to Jesus! We left there spiritually blessed... More

We were in town for one night and got tickets for Josiah For President. The too oft used word "AMAZING" doesn’t even begin to do this production justice. The standing ovation was deserved - and many eyes were moist. If you are in Shipshewana, you HAVE TO GO.

We enjoyed the Musical, Josiah for President. The theater is clean, the staff very helpful. The Air conditioning was not overly cold as some places are. Elevator if you can't do steps. It is not marked very well on the outside to know where it is.

All seats are folding chairs, but at least padded. 4 large screens so every seat has a good view. We had general admission seating, and found that the front row was best as each section is tired up a step. No issues with seeing over those in the row ahead of us. General admission is 1st come 1st seated so... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the musical Josiah. Very tastefully done. Players all have excellent voices. You won't get bored at all during this long play. Definitely recommend this play. After the play you can meet all the cast.
