Amish Countryside Tour/ "When Calls the Heart" Musical

We continue enjoying the warmth and hospitality of the Amish as a local guide takes us on a tour where we learn about the Christmas customs and traditions of the Amish, along with making some stops along the way at local Amish businesses. Our day ends back at the Blue Gate where we enjoy a delicious buffet dinner before taking our seats in the Blue Gate Theater for the production of "When Calls the Heart". Based on Janet Oak’s Book of the same name, the show is a theatrical celebration of truth, adventure, sacrifice, faith and above all-love. Elizabeth Thatcher if from a very wealthy family in Canada, at the beginning of a promising teaching career, but deep down inside, she is feeling a bit, "restless". When her older brother writes to ask if she might consider taking a teaching job in the great Canadian west, she decides this is the adventure she has been waiting for. Mishaps, challenges, and new experiences ensue as the captivating story and enchanting music take you on a journey you will never forget!
