Description

from Jonah
Jonah at Sight & Sound Theatres! Premiered in Branson, MO in 2014!

Enjoyed by more than 800,000 guests in its opening season in Lancaster County, PA, Jonah is the epic adventure that has delighted audiences young and old. An uplifting, powerful show full of surprises set 700 years before the birth of Christ, Jonah delivers a powerful and timely message that resonates no more clearly than today. The journey of Jonah, a faithful, righteous prophet of God, begins when he disobeys God and runs away from the Lord. His adventure takes him through a terrible storm, an encounter with an enormous fish, his new life in a wicked empire and the struggles he faces through what becomes the greatest revival in history. Jonah is a story of extremes we face as we trust in the Lord. Through it all, God reveals His extreme mercy and love not only for Jonah but His love for all.

With spectacular staging, immersive special effects, beautiful original music and a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Sight & Sound brings the action front and center to each visitor in our majestic Theatre in Branson, MO. See the show that visitors call "awe-inspiring," "uplifting" and "amazing".

Length of show is 2 hour 20 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.

"Great for all ages"
October, 2015
We attended Jonah as a family...grandma, mom, dad, & the children ages 8, 6 & 1. The one year old got restless after a bit but the cry room was sufficient for mom & baby to go to while still enjoying the show. The only complaint about cry room is that the viewing window was too high to look out of when sitting & rocking the baby. They had a TV to view, but would have rather seen live.

Tip: No need to arrive really early. Bring snacks...they're allowed in the theatre & the ones there are pricey

"Well worth the money. Jonah"
October, 2015
My wife and I enjoyed the time in Branson, MO. We were there to celebrate my birthday and Jonah was a great treat and as good as any production if not better than any I have seen. The script was right on spot with the Bible and the visuals were first class all the way. The actors were marvelous and costumes design was first rate. I gave it a 5 star because there wasn't a 10.

My husband bought tickets for me and my four best friends for my birthday. It was one of the greatest shows we have ever seen. Loved the music, costumes, scenery and EVERYTHING about the show. Also loved the message of how God loves us even though we are unlovable! I was sad that my husband was not there to enjoy it with me

We were a large group visiting in October 2017. We had good seats on the floor, middle section, maybe midway back from the stage; good view of all the details on stage. This was for Moses. The props, choreography, costuming, and sound were all very well done. The live animals knew just what to do, and the music was good too. The storyline was a bit hard to follow at times, but overall well worth the time. (It was lengthy).

As you walk in the sights of sculptures, paintings make you pause. Then the smell cinnamon roasted almonds make your taste buds lead the way. The conversation with complete strangers make you feel a part of a small village attending something special. Then you hear the doors open and you take your comfortable seat which shows you a stage ready for action. What are those REAL animals coming down the aisle??? Yes, get tickets for the next production. You will not be disappointed.

Went to Sight and Sound to see "Miracle of Christmas". An EXCELLENT production!!! This was the perfect place to purchase tickets. Absolutely no problems. The best part was no sales pitch. Have seen the last three productions plus "Miracle of Christmas". Our teenage grandsons are always in awe of the production and look forward to seeing another one in 2018. Sight and Sound Theatre has the overall #1 production in all of Branson.
