The Show is Great

We were at the Confession this week. It is so very well done. Acting and singing was great! We also stayed at their hotel, which was also very nice. I would recommend both!

There were 8 of us and we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner and our server was outstanding both from a social perspective and her job as a server. She stayed around after dinner to chat with us concerning her future plans after college. The play, confession, was done beautifully and the talent was evident throughout

Excellent! The acting and the singing was very professional. The theater itself is small and intimate. Not a bad seat in the auditorium.

We visited the blue gate theatre yesterday & saw the confession. We loved it. Just to see this musical is worth the trip to me. All the cast was friends& personable. We enjoyed speaking to them after the show. Great book & movie. Loved it.

Excellent show. The actors/actresses did an outstanding job performing in their roles. Very educational in the Amish Life.

I wish the far right aisle would have extended the entire length of the wall. Acoustics were good. Parking was good. A slanted floor would have been nice.
