Samson soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. And it’s here where he will face his greatest challenge.

"Miracle of Christmas"

Very nice show. As others have mentioned higher/raised, center stage seating affords a much better view. From where we were seated, you really had to crane your neck to see the side stage.

Wonderful program. We saw The Miracle of Christmas. The show was fantastic. The presentation was so professional and awe inspiring. There seemed to be a true sincerity of vision in the production as well. One of the best shows I️ have ever seen.

"A Wonderful Christmas Story"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The Sight and Sound Theatre never does anything half way. They do the Miracle of Christmas every year during November and December. The other shows are not repeated. We have been to 3 other performances at this site and they never fail to impress us. The theatre itself is just beautiful and very large. The performances are all fantastic. This one, although it does not follow the Bible story of the birth of Christ completely, it is beautifully done and actually gives you a look into what Mary and Joseph most likely went through, first with their own feelings and then with those of their families and the towns people. I am always amazed at all the live animals that go up and down the aisles and that are also on stage. The sound, costuming, sets etc. are all fantastic. Reservations are maybe not completely necessary, but most shows are full. I always get ours several weeks before we go. It is also better to be there about an hour before the show time, the parking lot is quite large and you may have to walk quite a distance otherwise. A very special way to usher in the Christmas Season.

If my child sits on my lap, do they need a ticket?
Children under the age of 3 may sit on a parent’s lap and do not require a ticket. Children age 3 and older do require a ticket and their own seat.
