Did You Know? 2019 is the Final Season for Samson in Branson.

Each year, the two locations host more than a million people from all over the world who travel to see these epic performances. The company wasn’t always so big, though. As a family-owned and run theater, Sight and Sound had humble roots. It all began in Lancaster County with the founder, Glenn Eshelman. This artist truly prided himself on everything from painting to photography and created a side show in 1964. It was the first ever S&S production! At first the show was a traveling experience, but in 1976 it found a permanent home first known as the Living Waters Theatre. The Behold the Lamb show was the very first production that used live theatrical elements that Sight and Sound is known for today. Now, Sight and Sound has grown from a side show to an amazing production complete with a 2,000 seat theater with a 300 foot panoramic stage in Lancaster County, and of course the beautiful stage which was opened in 2008.

About the Productions

Each Sight and Sound Theatres production is truly an inspiring experience to all who see it. Not only are the shows themselves fantastic, but the theater absolutely knows how to use state-of-the-art equipment and effects to their advantage. Each show takes approximately 42 months to complete. The scripts, stories, and music are all completely original. As well as providing a live music aspect, the soundtracks are original music that is created and recorded specifically for each show. These soundtracks can be purchased as well. Each song is performed live, though, by talented vocalists. A new show is produced every other year!


About the Animals

One of the most striking features is its utilization of live animals in each production. These animals include everything from pigs, horses, dogs, cats, llamas, camels, cattle, donkeys, and much more! Each animal is treated like a member of the Eshelman family, and there are animal care facilities featuring large grazing pastures for both the Lancaster County and Branson locations. The animal caretakers are knowledgeable and truly love and enjoy working with the animals who are happy, healthy, and well-loved.

This immersive production is bound to be one of Branson's best attractions, so ensure that you do not miss out by taking a trip to see this production in all its glory! This epic production will have the entire crowd on their feet in a standing ovation, so do not miss out on this inspiring attraction and many other popular attractions during your next vacation to Sight and Sound Theater.

"100 Stars to this show."
I have seen a lot of broadway shows including phantom of the opera and les miz. Samson is the best show i have ever seen and i am 69 years old. The staff was so kind and efficient. I broke my foot the day before and they provided excellent and comfortable seating to accommodate me. The set and scenery was breathtaking. The voices and all actors were amazing. I’m hoping i can make a return trip to see this wonderful show again. 100 stars to this show.

"We thoroughly enjoyed the production of Samson!"
We thoroughly enjoyed the production of samson! We have gone to church most all of our lives and still learned several things about samson that we did not know. We did check the facts in our bible to confirm which were actual biblical facts and which were poetic license. We appreciated the heads up before the performance that a small part of it would be added to make the story unfold more clearly. That was a good thing to do. It was a very accurate biblical account however, and such a magnificent production!! The use of live animals is fascinating. Quite extraordinary to say the least. We saw moses last season so can't wait till next year. It will be a family event from now on.
