Dear Solider Boy…a feel-good musical comedy

April 6 – July 27, 2023

It’s 1990 and Iraq has just invaded Kuwait. War is contrary to Amish ways, but Anna King wants to do something to help America’s troops, so she and her feisty friend and coworker Sofia volunteer to write letters of encouragement to the troops. Anna just wants to be a blessing. Sofia just wants to find a husband. It’s all fine until the lonely pen pals get weekend passes and show up to surprise the girls at work—all on the very same day!

This new musical comedy written by Martha Bolton, with original songs by Wally Nason, is the latest is a long line of wholesome, Broadway-caliber shows from Blue Gate Musicals, all set in the heart of Amish Country. This show is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Will Anna’s father learn of her secret mission? Will Sofia find a husband? Is true romance in the air for Anna (or is it just the Limburger cheese)?
