Make your plans now to see some of the exciting events available in Lancaster County.

Dance is the focus of the new show at the American Music Theater. “Dance Explosion!” runs July 29 through October 8. We went opening night and the show is high energy and covers all genres of dance. The 42nd St. tap dance and the Jitter Bug numbers were great. The “Alice in Danceland” skit was very entertaining to watch. There is singing in the show and lots of music from the band. AMT is an Authentic Bed and Breakfast Association Passport partner, so ask your innkeeper about a discount coupon before you buy tickets.

August 9 through October 29 join the Rainbow Dinner Theater for “John Loves Mary”. It is always a good laugh at the Rainbow Dinner Theater. They are another Authentic Bed and Breakfast Association Passport partner.

If you love Irving Berlin’s music then check out “I Love A Piano” at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater. This show runs August 25 – October. It will be hard not to sing along with “God Bless America” and swing and sway to “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. I can’t wait to see this show. Another Authentic Passport partner.

Another musical and fun night is coming to the Fulton Theater September 7 through September 25 for “The All Night Strut!”. We can’t wait for opening night for this toe tapping show featuring songs “Ain’t Misbehavin,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing” and “Lullaby of Broadway.” It will be hard to sit still through this show for sure.

For all of you Beverly Lewis fans, get ready to come to Lancaster, PA. From September 14 through December 2 a new musical “The Confession” will be performed on the Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant Stage. The musical is based on Beverly Lewis’ trilogy: “The Shunning”, “The Confession” and “The Reckoning”. It is currently running in Indiana and the cast from that show will be traveling here for the Lancaster performances.

So you aren’t into theater. A new event this year is 2nd Sunday Flavor Fair at Building Character in downtown Lancaster. There are local food vendors and live music plus the handcrafted creations of 30 local artisans at Building Character. This is an exciting outdoor happening. If you miss the Aug 14th event maybe you can catch the Sept 11th or Oct. 9th events.

The Authentic Bed and Breakfasts are waiting for your call. Get you calendar out and plan your stay in Lancaster County. There is so much to do and experience here. We look forward to seeing you soon.
