Join us for Jonah at the Sight & Sound Theatre in Lancaster, PA, Monday through Wednesday, August 21st through the 23rd, 2017.
Day 1: Depart for Lancaster, PA, the heart of Amish Country. 2 nights at the CORK FACTORY HOTEL, a luxury boutique hotel located in historic downtown Lancaster. This restored historic factory is now a vibrant modern hotel offering the original brick interior and exposed wood ceilings and full service restaurant. This evening everyone will be an “ARTIST IN AN HOUR” with chalk art instruction by Elva Hurst. Elva will walk you through the steps of creating your Lancaster County farm scene using chalk pastels. You’ll be amazed at your own hidden talent as she shows you the use of colors and blending to create your own original work of art to bring home. FAMILY-STYLE DINNER to follow at PLAIN & FANCY FARM RESTAURANT.
Day 2: Tour one of America’s earliest religious communities, EPHRATA CLOISTER. Founded by a German immigrant in 1732, this former religious community emphasized spiritual rather than material goals. Learn of their artistic accomplishments that amaze us to this day. Stop at the Countryside Road-Stand, an Amish owned and operated roadstand with a large array of homemade crafts, quilts and baked goods. This afternoon take our reserved seats at SIGHT & SOUND THEATRE for their production “JONAH”. Jonah is a prophet - and a man on the run, from God. After a series of wild adventures involving a seaport, a huge boat and a terrible storm, he finds himself in the belly of a giant fish! Here, God teaches Jonah how to receive grace and extend mercy. See this Bible classic spring to life on stage, with a world-class cast, spectacular special effects and live
animals. It’s not your average fish tale! Farewell dinner tonight at SHADY MAPLE SMORGASBORD.
Day 3: This morning we leave the Amish farmlands and head to Philadelphia. Visit the city’s newest attraction - ONE LIBERTY OBSERVATION DECK and experience the City of Brotherly Love from above with once in a lifetime views of Philadelphia. See Philly’s top points of interest like you’ve never seen them before...from 883 feet up. Head for home with great memories of our time in the Amish Country.
