A Simple Sanctuary, a new musical

April 8 – August 10, 2022

When her past catches up to her, Melissa James does what she always does – she runs – from her happy life in Connecticut and her beloved husband, Ryan, a successful investment manager, leaving a note begging him to trust her. While his life is upended, she finds a quaint hiding spot – June Bug’s B&B, run by a Mennonite woman who is happy to have her first customer. Melissa feels safe in her simple sanctuary in Amish Country until Ivanov, a shadowy figure from her past, tracks her down, dragging the whole community into her mystery life. Will she share her secrets? Who can she trust?

The newest thriller musical from Blue Gate Musicals, will have you on the edge of your seat. Based on an original story by David and Beverly Lewis, with script by Martha Bolton, and music and lyrics by Wally Nason, A Simple Sanctuary is a mystery with a heart.

What’s going on? Will Melissa return to Ryan? And what about the $80 million?
