About Single Rider
It's the hottest day of the year at Lucky Land Amusement Park in Lancaster County, PA. Abigail, Sarah, and Moira - three Amish girls from a nearby community - arrive at the park for their very first day of Rumspringa, the year in an Amish teenager's life when they are given the opportunity to explore the "English" world. In their one day at Lucky Land, each girl has a life-changing adventure that will alter the way she thinks about her upbringing - and herself - forever. And when Abigail falls for Shane, a troubled but kind-hearted teen from Florida, she must make the ultimate decision: return to the safety of the Amish world or leave her family behind in favor of a life she's never known and a feeling she never expected.
This fast-paced, fun, and joyful new musical employs a contemporary Pop/Rock/Folk score to tell a story that is light in tone but deep in thematic content. Its unique exploration of Amish culture and the intriguing custom of Rumspringa renders it one of-a-kind in the contemporary theatrical canon. And, with a refreshing wit and charm laced throughout the original songs, "Single Rider" is certainly a thrill ride audiences will not soon forget!
