"...there's a great view."
I made my reservation for a day that the weather wasn't good, so the lady asked if i could come back the next day and i said i could. She made a note on my reservation. The next day was much better, and there's a great view. Will probably be back during a different season.

We loved the whodunnit hoedown murder mystery dinner show!! I went with my wife and 3 kids, which included our 14-yr old boy, 12 yr old girl, and 7 month old girl and we all had a great time! The cast is hilarious! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The food was amazing! It was so good that i wanted more! They did a great job interacting with the crowd.
Tip: If you get a seat in the first few rows, you might get called on to be a part of the show provide your party with extra laughs at your expense! )

"Family friendly fun."
Family friendly fun. They appear to be remodeling the facility for sales opportunity, but the show remains the same. One actor was hard to understand but mostly entertaining. Friendly staff and show was not crowded, even for a holiday weekend.
Tip: Plan extra time to park and ride the shuttle back and forth to show area. Watch for signs as it is a little hard to find as google search not completely correct.

Wonderful way to get in the ambiance of the play, riding the tram down to the play's setting!!! The actors all spoke clearly and you could see all the action!! Speaking as a retired teacher i was concerned for young children with no warning about the violence: the gun shooting and the hooded horsemen.

Great acting!! Could hear every word and see all the action!! A little disturbing for young kids, considering the killing, the hooded horsemen, the ghost. I didn't see any warning for young children posted. We didn't have young children with us, but as a retired teacher i was concerned.

We loved shepherd of the hills drama! To make it even better, they could be selling popcorn & cold drinks through the crowds while people are waiting for it to start & at break time. Also it would make it fun if they would make a little deal if someone is celebrating a special occasion birthday, anniversary, honeymoon etc.

Good show, but not for the handicapped. The restroom facility at the theater was totally inadequate. The wheelchair ramps to and from the handicapped section were too steep and dangerous. We paid for vip seating, which are not handicapped accessible, so we had to sit in the handicapped section as my wife is confined to a wheel chair. The tram ride after the show was too fast, and dangerous. I would not recommend this show for anyone else in a wheel chair.

"It really speaks to what Branson is all about "
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, honor and faith.
