Then we will enjoy listening to The Texas Tenors, a 3-time Emmy Award winning classical crossover, trio vocal group formed in 2009 by country singer JC Fisher, Broadway singer Marcus Collins and opera singer John Hagen. We won’t believe our ears when we hear them together! Tonight we will dine together on another wonderful Blue Gate family-style meal before seeing the delightful musical, “The Christmas Tree Ship” at the Shipshewana Theatre located within the Blue Gate Restaurant. It’s all about a ship, a storm, and a Christmas story of heroic proportions.
