Ryan & Friends: Hilarity Happens!

April 9 – October 22, 2022 in Lancaster County, PA

Laugh out loud and get a look at Lancaster County like you’ve never seen it before when Ryan and his colorful cast of friends present a hilarious multimedia tour of the region. Randy the Rooster joins crowd-pleasing characters Jeffrey, Tiffany, Harold and Irene to offer a free-range—and spectacularly funny—perspective on the farm, food and feathered friends. Ryan & Friends will have you rolling in the aisles with new songs, more snappy comebacks and—as always—a whole lot of wisdom from an entertaining bunch of dummies.
