One Spectacular Theater!
Live theater in Ohio’s Amish Country! The remarkable venue that hosts these hilarious productions is a 12,000 sq. ft. theater with a 325-seat auditorium designed to trigger your imagination by creating the illusion that you are stepping into an authentic Amish barn—except this barn features state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and effects. As a result, audiences experience the production at the highest level. The climate-controlled theater features comfortable movie theater-style seating and easily accommodates wheelchairs and scooters. Hungry patrons may even purchase homemade treats and desserts at the “Barnyard Fixin’s” stand just outside the theater adjacent to the box office. Make sure you arrive early to shop around in the “Hen House” and take home a souvenir from the show!

I was expecting an 8 and got a 20! Excellent quartet, MC’s were hilarious, fabulous audience participation, and the skits were very well written, choreographed, and performed like they had been doing this for years! Never saw a glitch that canoften happen on opening night! The barn like setting is so perfect, the view of the valley awesome, and the seats, sound, lighting, etc were all professionally done. Great restrooms and concessions, etc. I haven’t laughed like that in years, I and look forward to seeing it again, and again! We have needed this venue in Amish Country, and this is a perfect way to provide that entertainment option, particularly for the tour groups!

We had a really good time last night! The folks were super friendly. The audience laughed so hard, especially at Lynyrd. He is a character! Gotta love him. Then there is the Jonas brothers. The whole show was just superfantastic. Loved the bluegrass band. Had us clapping hands and tapping feet. What a wonderful experience it was to be there!

A round of applause for all the work you have put into developing such a great venue! It is obvious that you have put a ton of thought into everything you have done. The Amish Theater is an Amish Country attraction of professional caliber that this area has been in desperate need. Thank you for inviting us to the show last night. We all enjoyed it! I especially enjoyed the Amish Country Theater Band!
