Bucks County Playhouse is partnering with Bucks County Joyrides, a Jeep tour company, to deliver an immersive experience that combines historical exploration, culinary delight, and Tony-winning theater.

The collaboration is in celebration of the Bucks County Playhouse’s production of “The Bridges of Madison County,” and will provide participants with a unique opportunity to tour iconic Bucks County landmarks while also enjoying a musical experience.

The New Hope Borough-based Bucks County Playhouse and Lahaska-based Bucks County Joyrides have created “The Bridges of Bucks County Package.”

The package will kick off at the Playhouse, where expert guides will chauffeur guests in custom jeeps through the county’s scenic landscapes, providing some Instagram-worthy memories. The Jeep tour will include visits to five of the county’s historically significant covered bridges, such as the Loux, Cabin Run, and Erwinna bridges.

Upon returning to the Bucks County Playhouse, guests will receive a $50 dining credit for the Playhouse Deck Restaurant. They will also be provided with prime tickets to the Playhouse’s new production of the Tony-winning musical romance, “The Bridges of Madison County,” running from August 11 through September 10.

Adele Adkins, the Playhouse’s Managing Director, expressed her enthusiasm about the new partnership: “The extraordinary beauty of our region, combined with the emotional journey brought to life onstage in ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ makes for a very special date experience,” she said.

The Bucks County Playhouse provided the following description of the show: “

The romantic musical, a rapturous love story based on Thomas Waller’s best-selling novel, centers around Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to escape war-torn Italy. The plot takes an unexpected turn when Francesca’s life is altered forever following a brief romance with a National Geographic photographer, played out against the backdrop of her family’s visit to the 1965 State Fair. The production features the 2014 Tony-Winning score by Broadway’s Jason Robert Brown.”

The package, which offers a blend of history, cuisine, and theater, will be available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays starting August 11. The tour will cost $178 per person, with limited availability and potential black-out dates. Further details, including the schedule, can be found on online.
