The theater is also showing the Miracle of Christmas show for the season.
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.
