See Harold Bell Wright's world-famous "Shepherd of the Hills" adapted for stage and brought to life under the stars in Branson's premiere outdoor amphitheatre. But it's not just a show, it's an experience. Not only will you see the book that made the Ozark area famous acted out before your very eyes, you'll be invited to join the cast in a square dance hoedown during the play's intermission. So what happens when you combine a recipe of over 90 cast members, more than 20 horses, donkeys and mules, a flock of sheep, a real-life burning log cabin, guns and an authentic 1908 DeWitt auto? Simply put, a sell-out show that brings audiences to their feet, and leaves you talking about the performance for many years to come.

The show centers around a love story between a young man and woman, but in its complexity is also about the mysterious shepherd who wanders the hills, his tragic past and the past of the neighboring hill people. In its entirety, the play is about redemption, forgiveness and love, and how "the story of the Ozarks," has something to teach each of the many Branson visitors who flock to the gorgeous outdoor stage.

The old mill theatre was very good. It portrayed the shepherd of the hill very, very well. The theatrics was somewhat amateur, but homegrown and refreshing and honest. It really speaks to what branson is all about - genuine people and love of decency, honour and faith.

We really enjoyed the performance. For the cast to invite us on stage and to come out afterwards to sign autographs made us feel right at home. They all were very personable!
