Then we head to the Shipshewana Theatre located within the Blue Gate Restaurant to see the delightful new musical, “The Christmas Tree Ship.” It’s all about a ship, a storm, and a Christmas story of heroic proportions. Inspired by a true story of one woman’s unsinkable determination to continue her husband’s mission of bringing Christmas trees to their Chicago community. This evening our buffet dinner will be at the Blue Gate Restaurant before we attend a concert treat of “The Collingsworth Family” at the event center.
