Since 2010, Blue Gate Musicals has been committed to producing high-impact, high-quality, Broadway-caliber musicals for audiences around the country.


Blue Gate Musicals is leading the way in its creation of a unique genre of musicals set in Amish Country America.  Most of our musicals have a central Amish Character whose stories intertwine the Amish and English worlds, creating intriguing dilemmas and soul-searching journeys - with lots of laughs along the way! Blue Gate Musicals gives our patrons a window into a world that is not their own, a world full of the challenges of community and the beauty of simplicity. 

 In addition, we are passionate about the people who work for us and are intentional about the actor’s experience with our company.  We strive to be competitive with all things important to you.  For the most part, our venues are small, intimate spaces.  


In 2023 we are running nine productions in three different venues.
