“Loved the show!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

To begin with, I didn't expect much. When they told us the show ("The Confession") lasted 3 hours, I almost left. That's a lot of vacation time to commit, if the show isn't good. Thank goodness we stayed. This show was top notch! I love a good musical, and this one didn't disappoint. The girl who played Kati was beautiful and so talented. Her grandparents were in the audience the night we were there as well. How sweet was that! :) I expected the show might be unprofessional and poorly acted, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The cast was great! I will definitely be back to Shipshewana (fell in love with the place) and next time I will attend whatever show is playing!

“Ken Davis”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Ken Davis was hilarious. This was our first time to the Blue Gate and the big thing that bothered me was how close the seating is. Felt like the guy next to me was way too close.

“Town Center Bad Experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Tickets to see Signature Sound in June said 6 PM. It was in the Town Center. Got there at 5:45 and took our seats. A not very good piano player from Goshen played and played. They hocked the audience selling CDs and the piano player played again. At 7:10 pm the show still hadn't started. We could have gone for dinner BEFORE the program if we had known wouldn't start until so late and come then. The seats are hard and the rise of the floor isn't where the back rows can see. So they put up screens! Bad experience! Will never go to the Town Center again.
