Round Barn Theatre — World-Class Theatre at Historic Amish Acres
It’s been more than a quarter of a century since this 1911 round barn was dismantled and resurrected at historic Amish Acres. Since then, the resident cast has delighted visitors with more than 100 Broadway musicals. Shows on tap for the 2017 season include new and old favorites such as Legally Blonde, Guys and Dolls, Disney’s The Little Mermaid and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.
Don’t miss Plain and Fancy, an Amish Acres tradition and the first musical to hit Broadway in 1955. A light-hearted look at the differences between the Amish of Lancaster County and a young couple from New York City, Plain and Fancy was one of the first depictions of an Amish community in American pop culture.
