Thursday, April 2, Majestic Music of Easter- CLOSED- Waitlist Only

Blue Gate Theater- Shipshewana

Join CALL members and friends and travel to Shipshewana to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ through the Majestic Music of Easter featuring one of America's family vocal groups. The wonder and beauty of the
Easter season will be celebrated in grand style with a musical program adapted especially for The Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana. The Rick Webb Family and Arts Evangelica will fill the stage of the intimate
downtown Shipshewana theater with beautiful music, interpretive dance, drama and dramatic monologue.

The Glory and Majesty of Easter has been created just for The Blue Gate audience as an adaptation of the musical He’s Gone. Rick Webb, patriarch of the musical family, says he worked closely with writer Derric Johnson, former creative director for Disney, to stage an “exquisite” event that is appropriate for the whole family. “The musical takes the audience from the manger to the resurrection,” Webb stated. “This worshipful event is perfect for the Easter season.

They will be joined on stage by Arts Evangelica, a dramatic dance troupe from North Carolina. The dancers, who will be returning from a tour in Israel just prior to arriving in Shipshewana, will offer interpretive ballet-style dance to bring even more meaning to the music and lyrics presented by The Rick
Webb Family. We will enjoy stops at the Cheese Factory, E&S Sales for bulk food and the small shops with lunch on your own. After lunch we will rejoice in the resurrection of Christ through the beautiful musical Easter presentation. We will finish the afternoon with a full course Amish dinner (including the delicious
pie).Cost - $69.00
