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 2018, we are thrilled to present the new musical The Home Game and also to welcome back the illusions of Brett A. Myers and the debut of his Magic & Wonder: DREAM show.
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.
When we come to the Family Inn, we like eating out and riding through the countryside. We love going across the street to the hardware store that goes on forever. We go to Sight & Sound all the time. We were in Bird-in-Hand in November to see Josiah for President on the Bird-in-Hand Stage. The show was magnificent.
