Message from Travel:  In the months ahead, we could have changes and you need to be prepared to be surprised.  Travel groups know because of COVID, lack of workers, state and local guidelines, etc., situations change.  Traveling, at least for now comes with plenty of unknowns.  By the time we visit a planned destination it could be closed.  Venues we thought would be closed could be now be open.

In both advertisements and general communications transparency is the key.  Diane, our vendors and I want travelers to know the trip may not always go exactly as planned.  But what is always a definite is we will work to make sure even with unknowns, we are doing everything to make sure you all have the best trip possible regardless.  If substitutions ever have to be made--we thank you for your patience and understanding.

"THE BEST OF ME"
At the Carlisle Inn Complex

RETURN:  7:00 PM
COST: $84 Due at signup (Amish Meal included)

Off to the Amish Country, to the Ohio Star Theater at Carlisle Inn for a wonderful Amish meal and new production of "The Best of Me"
ABOUT THE MUSICAL:
Being Amish sometimes didn't come easy for Rachel Miller.  Crooked quilts, burnt homemade bread and a small, quiet town have her longing to trade in "Amish apple dumplings"  for the "Big Apple"  in hopes of becoming a Broadway star.  Knowing nothing of acting other than a few shows she had seen on baker's TVs, will Rachel find out that the lights of the concrete jungle don't hold a candle to the life on the farm she wanted to leave?

You'll laugh a lot and cry a little as you follow an Amish girl, a fading Broadway star, and a handsome stranger in their quest to find the best of themselves.

Love, laughter, and the lights of Broadway brighten the stage in The Best of Me! ...A new musical comedy-the newest show to join the decade of hits produced by Blue Gate Musicals.  

We will have time to visit their wonderful bakery and shops before we head home.
