On February 20, for one-day-only, audiences across the country can share this inspiring and entertaining story of two worlds colliding as a young Amish woman seeks to find her birth mother.
The Confession Musical was adapted for the stage by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Martha Bolton. The musical follows the story of Katie Lapp, a young Amish girl who discovers that her parents have been keeping a deep secret…that she is adopted. Katie decides to find her birth mother, defying the rules of her Amish village and risking a shunning. Meanwhile, Laura Mayfield, her wealthy birth mother who is battling an illness that might take her life, began searching for her long-lost daughter. Secretly plotting against Laura is her gold-digging husband Dylan. Dylan knows that if Katie is found, he will no longer inherit Laura’s fortune. With the help and prayers of her Christian housekeeper, Laura hopes to foil Dylan’s plan and be reunited with her daughter.
