He defeated an entire army and slayed a lion with his bare hands. But there’s a secret behind Samson’s superpower. Chosen by God from birth, he’s been given superhuman strength – as long as he follows the rules. And that’s where the trouble begins. Samson soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. And it’s here where he will face his greatest challenge. Journey with this unlikely hero as he battles the Philistines – and his own personal calling. It’s an unforgettable, uplifting story that will literally bring the house down!

After reading many reviews and having lots of personal recommendations, I ordered tickets to see a Lights & Sounds performance. Moses was the current show. There really aren't words to describe the experience. Live animals, highly technical sets (that wrap around the sides of the theatre) and an overall amazing performance. The building is beautiful, clean and not a bad seat in the theatre. We sat in the elevated section. There is not a balcony, just stairs to get up to each row. If you are physically able, this is the place to sit to see everything. I'm sure the floor seats are fun with the animals and actors using the isles to enter and exit the stage, but the elevated seats give a nice view of the whole theatre. The staff is friendly, elaborate gift shops and a wide variety of snacks that ARE ALLOWED in the theatre. One review mentioned parking in the back lot and this definitely made it easier to exit (I recommend backing into your space too).

The performers were so entertaing and believable. We saw the production of Moses and it was fantistic. Location of the theater made it easy access from Branson , just a few miles from the town. Parking was a breeze and thearer seats were very comfortable. We plan to go to the theater again on our next trip to Branson.

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon. The show Moses was so amazing that we just sat in awe nearly the whole time just taking in the story and all the action. Very well-done! Looking forward to coming again for other shows.
