Be completely enveloped in the performance with a stage that wraps around the audience from three different sides, providing a wonderful experience and allowing for the perfect seat from every angle. Follow this tall tale as Samson displays his immense strength, only to be deceived by his lover Delilah. Delilah's betrayal comes when she betrayed him in his sleep by having a slave cut his hair off, removing the superhuman strength from him and allowing him to be confined by the Philistines, who in turn, gouge out his eyes and force him into a mill to grind grain for them as a prisoner. As the story goes, Samson is taken into the Philistine temple of Dagon, where he is allowed to rest upon a pillar. Samson prays to his god and asks for help, after which he is given his strength back. With his strength being returned, he decided to tear down the pillars, causing the temple to come crashing down on the Philistines, killing all of the people inside, including Samson himself.

The Christian theater company of Sight & Sound Theatres is based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where the Millennium Theatre is located and was created by Glenn and Shirley Eshelman. The company began in 1976 in a small auditorium rented from Lancaster Bible College, and the success of that production started the company that we now know and love! The Millennium Theater was opened in 1998, and the Branson theater was opened in 2008 with a similar facility to the Millennium, with a large wraparound stage and fantastic audio and visual effects!
