A friend and I came to see a comedian in this beautiful theater. Everything about the Blue Gate and its surrounding area is so nice. Even as a local, I could spend a whole day just looking at all the amazing shops and things to see. The carriage rides that are offered right next to the theater would help you... More

I love the shows they have at this theater. This is the 5th show I've seen here. I saw 'The Christmas Dinner ". It was great. Sold out and no wonder- it was fantastic. They are having at least two more shows I want to see in 2016.

The Theater is a great venue for concerts and theatrical performances. We watched the seasonal performance of A Christmas Dinner. The play was fun and mixed the "average" American commercial idea of Christmas with an Amish look at Christmas. It was a great musical with outstanding voices. It seemed to be a local play with a limited audience. It was... More

The show pokes fun at all of our holiday trappings while honoring the spirit of Christmas. It's an intimate seeing. I think about 300-325 seats in a half-round setting. We were near the front and felt like we were part of the show. Very comfortable. Great music. Great voices. The sets were clever and made for easy scene changes. Try... More

Went to the Christmas dinner show and great as usual. It was the fourth show we have attended and was another good one. They do a wonderful job with their shows. We bought a dinner theater and overnight package which is a great way to go.

My girlfriends and I were there in November and seen the Christmas dinner show. It was wonderful. The cast had the most wonderful singing voices I have ever heard at a small performance.

I took 19 of my best friends to see the Musical "Family Christmas". We had a wonderful home style lunch in the Blue Gate restaurant before the musical. The meal was perfect and the musical, although it wasn't the very best that I have seen here, was great and really got us into the Christmas spirit. Of course we shopped... More

This is a quaint theater that allows you an up close experience with the performers. Most of the seats offer a great view of the stage and they do have TVs on the side for the few opportunist seats. Tends to be an older crowd with very few kids. I would say not the best for young children. This is... More

We stopped here for a Rhonda Vincent concert. It's a nice venue and all of the seats had a good view. It's part of a large complex which includes a restaurant, gift shop and bakery.

We were at your theatre on 10/15/15 and saw Half-Stitched. On a whole, it was a good musical with very talented actors. However, there was one act which shook my husband and myself, and we wished we had a little notice before hand. It was when there was the flashback to the war when the young man was reliving his...
