Whether you live in or visit Lancaster County, the Bird-in-Hand Stage makes it easy to enjoy wholesome, high-quality live musicals and magic shows right in the heart of Amish Country. Take advantage of our on-site dining, great prices and choice of show times and treat yourself to a memorable theatre experience with friends and family.
The house lights dim… A hush settles over the audience… When the cast steps on stage, you’re in for a treat. Our Bird-in-Hand Stage brings live entertainment up close and personal with musical theatre and magic shows in a unique Lancaster County setting. Be captivated by our Broadway-style musicals, packed with humor, heart and purpose. Or watch a master illusionist’s every move (and still wonder how he does it). Experience it for yourself and find out what keeps our Guests coming back.
Since 2011, relevant and meaningful original Broadway-style musicals from Amish Country have made our Bird-in-Hand Stage one of Lancaster County’s must-see stops for live entertainment. Presented in partnership with Blue Gate Musicals, these original stage shows offer a window into a unique world. In 2019, we are thrilled to present the new musical mystery Stolen and also to welcome back the illusions of Brett A. Myers and the debut of his two shows Magic & Wonder: IMAGINE and A Magical Merry Christmas.
So escape your everyday world for a little while and enjoy our live entertainment. You’ll find yourself laughing, holding your breath, gasping, tapping your toes – uplifted and fully entertained.
I’m a big fan of the Bird-in-Hand Stage. They have excellent shows. It’s a talented cast. I’m not interested in taking a bus to New York, because these shows are equally good. I’m looking forward to their first Christmas show. That’s exciting!
