    [post_content] => A small Pennsylvania town is shaken when Zack Fisher, the infant son of a prominent Amish family, is kidnapped. Accusations fly. Although everyone comes under suspicion, the case goes cold. Zack’s sister Naomi, who was supposed to be watching him, blames herself for the next 20 years – then takes matters into her own hands. Packed with a cast of interesting and complex characters, including a quirky, noir-style detective and an amateur Amish sleuth, this musical mystery tells a moving story about learning to forgive yourself.

Presented in partnership with Blue Gate Musicals, with a script by Martha Bolton based on Wanda Brunstetter’s best-selling Daughters of Lancaster County series, this light-hearted whodunit is brought to life by a talented cast of professionals. Chosen from 5,000 hopefuls at auditions across the country, our cast members have appeared at Sight & Sound Theatres, Ozark Actors Theatre, Peach State Summer Theatre, Lexington Children’s Theatre, South Bend Civic Theatre and other venues. This production includes several veterans of the Bird-in-Hand Stage.

If faith, family and self-forgiveness matter to you, Stolen will steal your heart.

Jesus

at Sight & Sound

My first grandchild is 16 now. I started going to the Family Inn with her and her parents. When the kids are young, you have Dutch Wonderland. We’d go to the American Theater for a show, do some shopping. I loved all the little quaint stores across the street. The kids loved the swings, the miniature golf and the pools. And the prices are very reasonable.

Create Memories for a Lifetime

In the heart of our village, the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn in Lancaster, PA is built on land that has been in the Smucker family for generations – since 1925, when John E. Smucker bought the farm from his father-in-law. Today, we have 125 rooms and continue to improve on our resort-style country inn for the benefit of our Guests.

With one outdoor and two indoor swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, an on-site fitness center, and other recreational facilities, our Bird-in-Hand country inn is the perfect place for an active family or group. Think of us like a family resort in Lancaster. We offer unique experiences like Fireside S’mores and free ice cream socials with the Smucker family that help make for a memorable family vacation. You can pull up a lawn chair and watch horse-drawn Amish buggies go by or hot air balloons launch from the field across the road. Plus, our location puts us in the middle of everything you want to see and do in Amish Country. Our hotel in Lancaster County is next to our Restaurant and Smorgasbord, as well as our live theatre. We’re within easy walking distance of our Bakery & Cafe, a farmer’s market, antique shops and a mini-golf course. And if you’re looking for a hotel near Sight & Sound Theatre, Dutch Wonderland, Kitchen Kettle Village, the Strasburg Railroad or the outlets, we’re just a short drive from these popular Lancaster, PA attractions.
