My grandchildren and I didn’t know what to expect when we went to Sight and Sound Branson. We were blown away by the quality of the singing, acting, sets, scenery, script, and really making the Bible come to life! Well done!

"Samson"
October, 2018 NEW
We bought a show and motel package. When we showed up to the show someone was in our seats. After examining our tickets we discovered our show ticket dates didn't match our motel dates. I was upset and headed out the door when my wife stopped me and said she was gonna tell the attendant. The attendant said she would be right back and in a few minutes had us sitting in new seats watching the show. That's the class of the people behind the scenes that make a production like Samson world-class.

"Special Effects are Awsome"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 23, 2018 NEW
Production of Sampson was truly amazing. Have seen 4 different productions and Sampson had truly amazing special effects and the use of animals definitely added to the theme of the well known story. Actors and narrator were excellent. Definitely arrive a minimum of 1 hour before the performance. Show was sold out and traffic can sometimes be a problem. Handicapped parking can be a problem if you show up at the last minute. Recommend purchasing tickets from box office by phone well ahead of your planned visit. Show is extremely popular. We purchased our tickets a month ahead of time.

Sight and Sound is the best way to describe this show. It is almost a surround feeling as every part of the production comes to life. This is my 1 must see in Branson every year.

This was the best show we’ve ever seen anywhere! The stage was amazing. They used the side stage in addition to the front, and some even came down the isles with horses, llamas, etc. what a great show for all ages. We were able to find discount tickets by listening to a 45 minute presentation.

"Good Productions With a Religious Theme"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 22, 2018 NEW
The Sight and Sound Theater in Branson always has a biblical themed show running. The shows debut in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then make the trip to Branson. The stage is very large with side stages being used at various times. It is best to get a seat at least 10 rows back so you can see the overall effect. I have seen 3 shows at the theater and enjoyed them all. The only drawback is the altar call at the end of the show. It made it seem like a church service. Other than that, I must say that Samson was very good but a bit long. 3 hours is a long show and the seats weren't anything special in the comfort department. The parking is plentiful and has great accessibility for the less mobile.

The show that my family and I saw was "Samson." I recommend it to all family members. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat with action all around you. It's hard not cry at the end when you see the reminder of God's love for usI hope to return one day to see another story at Sights and Sounds. It's so worth every penny! The actors, music and animals were superb!

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.
