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"
Reviewed 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"
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

"Moses-incredible production! Do not miss this show!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The tickets were pricey-and unlike other Branson shows, there are not many opportunities for discounts. I bought the tickets for my family and hoped that we would not be disappointed. We were not disappointed and it was worth every penny. Moses was one of the best shows that I have ever seen. It had wonderful music, lots of live animals, fantastic actors, and incredible sets and effects. My whole family loved the show and it seemed like everyone around us in the audience did as well. It was pretty accurate Biblically, which can be hard to do when you are compressing so many years, concepts and stories. I think that the best seats are probably on the main floor near the center aisle about halfway back but as other reviewers have said, all the seats seem to be pretty good. We booked late and sat in the third row near the far right aisle. The animals came very close to us and we had a great view. If you sit farther back, you can more easily take in the bigger picture. There were food and drinks for sale. The bathrooms were absolutely spotless at the beginning of the show. The theater was clean and very well kept. I would recommend this show to anyone of any age. If you are a Christian, I would encourage you to make every effort to go see it. You will love it and will thank me later.
