About the show

This fast-paced new musical employs a contemporary Pop/Rock/Folk score to tell the story of three Amish girls who come an amusement park on the first day of their Rumspringa. More…

It's the hottest day of the year at Lucky Land Amusement Park in Lancaster County, PA. Abigail, Sarah, and Moira arrive at the park for their very first day of Rumspringa, the year in an Amish teenager's life when they are given the opportunity to explore the "English" world. In their one day at Lucky Land, each girl has a life-changing adventure that will alter the way she thinks about her upbringing - and herself - forever. And when Abigail falls for Shane, a troubled but kind-hearted teen from Florida, she must make the ultimate decision: return to the safety of the Amish world or leave her family behind in favor of a life she's never known and a feeling she never expected.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Funny, Great writing

See it if You enjoy Kerrigan & Lowedermilk or other contemporary theatre composers. Enjoy shows with strong female leads.

Don't see it if You dislike RomComs. Though even if you don't, this one might win you over. Don't want to see certain teen RomCom tropes.

Delightful, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like musicals where everything works out in the end.

Don't see it if You're cynical and can't look past basic sets or some vocal limitations.

Refreshing, Absorbing

See it if You would like to learn more about the amish culture and the opportunity young adults have to experience outside society.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy long winded shows that engage you in outside cultures.

Delightful, Entertaining, Beautiful orchestrations, Talented

See it if you like small stage productions that pack a lot in! Some talented young actors, and wonderful music! Nothing profound, but enjoyable.

Don't see it if you don't like a basically simple production that does not break new writing ground.

Also Although it sometimes over-powered the singers, the six musicians were... Read more Read less

Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if you like to support new musicals & new artists. It's definitely a work in progress & needs refining. Some cute moments & decent music though

Don't see it if you prefer more polished musicals and a stronger plot. This is definitely a fun evening, but it's a very uneven show overall.

Funny, Romantic

See it if You like small-time theater experiences

Don't see it if You aren't interested in the kind of show you might see at a college or local high school.

Entertaining, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You enjoy a light, fun show with great female characters and cute songs.

Don't see it if You want something completely finished. The next run will for sure be even better.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Boring, Amateur

See it if You like seeing something in a first draft and participating in the development of raw material.

Don't see it if You don't want to be charged an insane amount to see a first draft by beginners. The book and lyrics are unfortunately very bad.

Overrated, Small, Cute, Amateur, Beginners

See it if you want to see some great young performers, who are all trying hard, and support the first draft of a show.

Don't see it if you don't want to see a very slight show, that really needed a second draft; you don't want to pay so much for amateur theatre.

During previews
Entertaining, Worthwhile, Enthusiastic, Small live orchestra

See it if You are interested in seeing what a young company can do with a few props, good costumes, an interesting story and some likable songs.

Don't see it if You are seriously interested in knowing more about the Amish, or want to see a large scale production.

During previews
Clever, Delightful, Quirky

See it if you are a musical theatre lover! The concept of Amish women coming of age is a fun spin on the form.

Don't see it if You prefer dramas -- this is funfunfun

During previews
Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny

See it if you like a fun show with real live music. Six pit musicians Off Broadway. Very cool!

Don't see it if you don't like new musical theatre.

During previews
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy new modern works for musical theatre.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy shows in development.
