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.

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"
Reviewed 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.
Tip: They should know that they are going to be amazed and their expectations will be more than met.

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

Great for all ages! The technology was 2nd to none. The staff was more than accommodating...but the second the doors close I felt just like I was in Bible times. It truly brought the story of Moses to life!

My husband and I just went to see Moses. It was spectacular. I booked the play because it was suggested by a friend that had been to Sight and Sound for another play last year. Moses was amazing to watch. From the beginning to how Moses' mother sent him down the river to the parting of the Red Sea I was in awe. It was a totally different experience than any other play that I have seen. If you don't get a chance to see Moses, then be sure to catch another play by this company. I am sure you won't be disappointed

This was my first live production theater experience and it was awe inspiring and magnificent. All other reviews here talk about the same - so there must e something good going on :-) Coming to other details - parking is sufficient and well managed, does not get too crowded considering the large number of people who visit. Easy to locate, staff members inside the theater are very helpful and give required instruction before the show. If you are able to get the aisle seat, that would be great as you will keep getting surprised throughout the show.. Overall a MUST visit in Branson and worth the time and Money!
