About ‘The Amish Project’
When the unthinkable occurs, unimaginable response pours out. This fictional exploration of a real event that occurred in 2006 in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, follows seven characters connected to a hostage event in a Lancaster County Amish schoolhouse.
What is essential when a community desperately needs hope? While sometimes raw, the prevailing message of forgiveness provides hope for a world shaken by events both tragic and inspiring.
“The Amish Project” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
There is no intermission for this performance. Unique to HOPE, there will be a 10-minute time of engagement at the end of each performance between cast and audience.
Tickets are $20 and $18 for students, military and seniors, and can be purchased through The Main website.
