We were given the seats in the upper middle section and it was awesome! We have been there before and have sat in the bottom left and bottom right and still had an awesome time, however these seats made it even better. Loved the show as always!

I’m not sure how they plan to pull off Jonah and the whale to be this good, but I can’t wait to see it. I definitely recommend Samson!

The guy who played Samson had a magnificent voice. The stagecraft was so impressive - how do the actors work with moving scenery? And the animals in the aisles werr surprising and fun.

"Samson, A Branson Must See Performance."

The Sight and Sound Theater live performance of the life of Samson was an outstanding performance. We have been fortunate to attend each of the shows at Sight and Sound over the years and have never been disappointed. The facilities at this theater are outstanding and the inclusion of the entire theater environment throughout the presentation makes the audience feel like they are in the center of all of the action.

We always enjoy the shows they bring to Branson. It is well worth the time and money to do the Behind the Scenes Tour.

Are cameras allowed inside the theater?
Feel free to use your camera right up until the start of the show. During the performance, however, photography and video are not permitted.

Will I be seated if I arrive late?
In order to ensure the safety of all guests, actors and animal actors (who use the aisles in darkened show conditions), we cannot guarantee that we will be able to seat you immediately. 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. Please know that we may not be able to seat you until intermission. To get the most out of your Sight & Sound Theatres experience, please plan to arrive 45 minutes before your scheduled show time.

At the theater, full-time, trained security staff is on patrol at all times. In addition, electronic surveillance is in use. The theater reserves the right to inspect any bag, container, or package brought into the theater.

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. Should your child become restless or need a break, we do offer a Family Room, where you can watch a live video feed of the show on a TV.

Are car seats, strollers, or baby carriers allowed inside the theater?
For the safety of guests and actors, large items such as car seats, strollers or baby carriers are not allowed into the theater. However, we do offer booster seats so that children can have the vantage point they need to enjoy the show. 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. We offer booster seats to provide young children with the best possible view. If you think your child may need a booster seat, please speak with one of the ushers when you arrive.
