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 took our 3 and 5 year old girls and they loved it. I highly recommend this attraction. Even the parking was quick and easy.
Tip: It's almost 2 and a half hours so if it's close to meal time maybe grab a little something to eat before your go.

This show was by far the best we attended on our trip! It was wonderful! We took our 12 month old son and it held his attention! They even have a family room to take the little ones so they can move around in with an attendant that checks on you to see if you need anything while in the family room with your children. The show was very entertaining and we will definitely be back to see more at the sight and sound theater!

Our special thanks to every one of the cast and crew for superb performances and scenery. We are so glad we went to see a live re-inaction of Jonah and it followed the Bible so accurately.

"Weekend Getaway"
Reviewed April, 2015
"Jonah" follows the Biblical story of the Old Testament prophet, Jonah. The show follows the Bible pretty closely with some imaginary back ground info. on Jonah's life thrown in to add sparkle. This is a huge production with many cast members and even live animals. The show was awesome because it comes off stage and puts "you" inside the story. Kids will love it! Also, there is a strong Christian message of love, forgiveness and redemption. Don't be surprised if you get a little misty eyed a few times, because it will get inside you. Just Go See It!
Tip: Be careful not to get seats too close to the stage. This is a huge production and it is hard to take it all in if you are too close. We sat at stage floor level about half-way back and it was really loud.

"Great Family Experience"
Reviewed March, 2015
Jonah was amazing! I'm the only one in my family that likes going to the theatre. My husband and children were mesmerized the entire time having things all around them, live animals and coming out into the audience. It was so fun to watch the amazement of my kids faces, hearing them laugh and not wanting it to be over. I highly recommend this show for everyone!
Tip: There are live animals, I'm not sure if one's allergies will be effected or not, but the theatre does smell like a petting zoo. Not something that distracted from the show once it started. They do use theatrical smoke some people are bothered by this as well. I didnt think it would be a problem if you sit far enough away.

My husband and I were wishing we had brought the grandchildren be cause they would have loved it as much or more than we did. it is a wonderful show. Everything was wonderful and the whale was very real looking in the dark. We really enjoyed the experience. We watched the show but we also watched the children around us and they were so interested in the sh0ow that they sat still and watched the show instead of jumping around like some children do at show that don't hold their interest. After we got home we started to get the DVDs of the shows and I can hardly wait for the bext one to come out in Branson.;

"Grandparents trip"
Reviewed February, 2015
The story of Jonah as told at the Sight and Sound theater held the attention of our 7 year old grandson. We were apprehensive at first but to our amazement he sat still and watched with awe. The cast did a wonderful job. The sets, props, costumes and music drew us out of our theater seats and into a different world. Every year or so, we take one grandchild on a grandparent date/trip. If possible, I would go again and share this experience with one of our other 15 grandchildren.

"Loved Jonah. The Gospel was proclaimed."
Reviewed February, 2015
Jonah was well worth the ticket price. We had already been to Sight and Sound theater to see the Noah story, and loved that as well. But Jonah was every bit as good. The special effects, the singing, the acting, were all great, and glorious to God. The seats are comfortable, and I would say, every seat is a good seat to see the show. Most importantly of all, is that a gospel presentation was given. Truly a blessing.
Tip: Make sure to leave in plenty of time before the show, as the traffic on the main strip, can keep you from getting there on time.

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire Jonah experience. Actually enjoyed it so much had to return to Branson for a second trip. Sight and Sound Theatres presentation of Jonah is amazing detailed from the costumes to the stage settings to the music and live animals, it captures your attention and keeps it until the final curtain falls. The staff is friendly and helpful and the refreshments are not overpriced. The Lion and Lamb is a beautiful sight and testimony even if you never make it inside the theatre!
Tip: There is only one way in and one way out so dont plan a speedy exit!

This is a must see. They put a lot of effort and money into their show. We were amazed, and my kids still talk about it.

"Amazing Theatrical Production"

I have never been to sight and sound before. Let me tell you this place is amazing. A very welcoming and helpful staff. We went to see Jonah and I wasn't sure what to expect at first but then the show started and I was in awe the whole time. I've been involved in many theater production and this is by far the best I've ever seen. The technology and engineering was absolutely incredible. Moving thousands of pounds of sets and scenery was amazing to see. And it moved very quickly and with ease. The animals that were involved in the production was awesome to see how well trained they are interacting with the actors/actresses. I also loved how the production interacted with the audience. It made you feel like you were actually in the scene with them. This is a most see attraction in Branson. I can't wait to go back again to see the new production of Moses coming out next season!

Went with my wife to see this. Only one word to describe it "AWESOME ". This is a must see . Would recommend to anyone going to Branson. Yes it's based on Jonah from biblical times but don't let that discourage you if that's not your thing. As a musical /play top notch. You won't be disappointed.

"Impressive Theatre"

What a great show! We saw Jonah. The theatre skills and lighting and music and special effects are all as good as it gets. Rivals Broadway. Probably one of the best shows in Branson. A bit on the expensive side but for the quality of the production I felt it was well worth it. (Paid more from Broadway shows in dingy little theatres.)

Jonah is a great presentation in a beautiful setting at Sight & Sound in Branson, MO. I would highly recommend this for any Branson vacation. The set was exceptional.
