The GÜT Life – with the Yoders (Live Show)

August 27 – October 23, 2020

Join Simon and Eliza Yoder for a conversation about their plain life – which isn’t always so simple. You’ll laugh as they talk about growing up Amish, working the family farm, learning to drive a buggy… You’ll be captivated by tales of rumspringa, living among the “English” and making choices. You’ll be moved by their touching love story and universal insights into their 20-year marriage and raising a family together. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll join them in an occasional song.

An engaging new show from Blue Gate Musicals, the creative team behind The Confession and Half-Stitched, this interactive 90-minute experience will entertain, educate and enlighten with its insights into the “plain” life of depth, beauty and lighthearted joy.

Meet the Yoders – and get a plain and simple perspective on life.

Your safety & comfort matter

We are excited to present high-quality live entertainment on our stage once again. So everyone has plenty of room to spread out, we are limiting attendance at each show to less than 50 percent of capacity – well within recommended guidelines.

Seating is by general admission. If you purchased tickets prior to July 2020, or if you note your preference when purchasing tickets, we will do our best to honor your seat selections while seating your household members at least 6 feet from other parties. We ask guests to arrive early so that we may get everyone comfortably seated before the show begins.

We have enhanced our cleaning schedule, thoroughly cleaning the theatre after each show and frequently sanitizing high-touch surfaces. Hand-sanitizing stations are available throughout the theater. Our ventilation system brings in fresh outside air.

For the safety of all our guests and employees, masks are required in the theatre and in common indoor areas, including restrooms and our restaurant dining room, and we ask everyone to practice physical distancing of at least 6 feet from non-household members.

If you are not feeling well, kindly call to reschedule your reservation.

Although we are taking precautions to help prevent the spread of disease, these measures do not guarantee that you will not be exposed to the novel coronavirus while visiting the premises.
