The Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm is home to the only "experiential" theater on the East coast. The story of “Jacob’s Choice” features a more intimate view of the Amish today through the eyes of the Fisher family and scenes from Amish history re-created with multiple projection screens, special effects, ghostly images, wind and rain, in a three dimensional set. Shows on the hour - duration approx. 40 minutes.
The Amish Experience Theater is open 7 days a week 9:30am to 5:00pm mid-March through December. Shows begin on the hour. Closed January through mid-March, and on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
