"A great family night out"
April, 2018 NEW
Samson was a great experience, sights and sounds presented well. I only have two issues: top seats, although a great view had absolutely no leg room and hard to get out with a small child. The show was a bit drawn out, however that's just a personal preference.

Everything about the show is wonderful. I want to go back and sit closer next time. We sat about 20 rows back, which was not a bad seat, but next time I want to be close enough to see facial expressions. The actors were amazing, and the production values were top notch. The manipulation of the set was just superb! And the use of live animals— so well done! Don’t miss this show!

We saw Samson yesterday at the 3:30 show. We had wonderful seats in the center of the first balcony and we could see everything. Previously, we had seen Moses and Jonah. What made this experience even more wonderful was the backstage tour that we took a couple of hours before the performance. Two of the cast members were our tour guides (Samson's first love interest and one of the Philistine soldiers). The tour was so interesting and we learned so much. We got to see the stage, the storage areas, the holding area for the animals, dressing rooms complete with wigs, costumes, makeup, etc. There are only two Sight n Sound Theaters in the U.S. and we are so fortunate to have one so close to us.

Just saw their production of 'Samson', and it was great! We have seen 4 of their shows over the years, and each time the experience was breathtaking. Exceptional productions, and their use of live animals in their plays is a real plus. One of the true 'must see' shows in Branson, even if you don't go for 'spiritual themed' attractions (though, if you go you'll be blessed! ;)

We visited the theater on April 11th at the 7:30 show. Our group of 55 had a most wonderful time. We were spellbound with the great performance. The theater parking is spacious for buses. Our tickets were brought out to our bus by two very friendly and informitive greeters. The theater is simply beautiful outside and inside. Easy to follow instructions on seating with plenty of excited employees to help you. We had one of our group in a electric scooter and he had no problems moving around in this beautiful theater. The performance will be talked about for a very long time at our Church. Thank you Sight and Sound for a most memorable evening. This is the main reason we came to Branson. Oh by the way you must try the Roasted Almonds they are fantastic.

We bought tickets online one week ahead of time to ensure good seats. We sit in row 7 which is great. We could see clearly the stage as well as the side stages. The show is very inspiring. The theater is like brand new and seats are very comfortable. The show can be enjoyed even for people not familiar with the Bible story.

The theater doors will close promptly at show time. If you arrive after the start of the show, the House Manager will determine when and where you will be seated.

Are children welcome at the show?
Yes. As a family business that values and believes in quality family time, we delight in creating memorable experiences for the entire family. Children of all ages are welcome. However, since the shows run approximately 2 ½ hours in length, we have found they are best suited for children age 5 and up.

If you have a young child that becomes restless during the performance, you’re welcome to accompany your child to our Family Room as needed, where you can watch a live video feed of the show on a TV.

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.
