    [post_content] => Christmas Day approaches and uncertainty reigns in the beautiful village of Paradise. Matthew and Mary, the new owners of a thrift store, face seemingly insurmountable challenges, including a parent with dementia, a sister with control issues, some very nosy and noisy neighbors, and a painting of unknown value – all of which make for a few “bumps in the road” during the most wonderful time of the year. Will the holidays bring heartache or be filled with healing? And what is the artwork worth? Join us and find out!

Presented in partnership with Blue Gate Musicals and based on the story by Wally Nason and adapted for the stage by Wally Nason and acclaimed author Martha Bolton, this Christmas show is the newest musical from the same creative team that brought you The Confession, Half-Stitched, Josiah for President, Our Christmas Dinner and The Home Game. A Bird-in-Hand Christmas to Remember is brought to life by a talented cast of professionals chosen from 5,000 hopefuls at regional auditions who have delighted audiences across the country.

If you can appreciate colorful characters and solid values, this quirky, heart-warming and joyful journey is guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit.

For tickets, call (717) 768-1568, visit our box office or reserve online.

My family was recently blessed by the opportunity to visit and review one of the Smucker family’s hotels, the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn. This country-living resort is SO much more than just a hotel!

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.
