"FAN -TASTIC!!"
December, 2018 NEW
The show, acting, singing, and staging was phenomenal! Have been to a lot of theater events, but nothing like this that keeps you fully entertained and involved. The scenery and often the action was above and on three sides. The acting and singing were powerful and moving. I learned so much about the history of Samson, yet came home to do more research about his life and those around him. A tremendous show that makes me definitely want to see any such future performances!

Tip: Every seat is good. The only problem would be if you were on the floor seats, it may be a little awkward to see if there were a tall person, or someone wearing a hat sitting front of you as happened during the first half. I would not hesitate to sit in the raised seating area at the back of the theater as I don't think I would want to sit too close to the stage.

"Best visual gospel teaching!!!"
November, 2018 NEW
Sight and Sound productions bless me so much. Seeing a Bible story acted out with accurate depiction gives me a better understanding. From the time you park to the time you drive away, you are welcomed by kind employees and you witness what true hard work looks like. After watching Samson I felt spiritually uplifted and reminded that God cares and is in control!!!

Spent a wonderful evening with the family at the Light & Sound theater enjoying their production of "Samson". Everything is top notch from the ease of parking, concessions/restrooms, and staff to the amazing show. Great actors with beautiful voices work flawlessly with stage design that is a star unto itself. I've never seen such magnificently designed setting. Thank you for such a great show. Your commitment to excellence is very evident. Will be back!

We saw the Samson show and it was amazing. Wonderfully performed with live animals as well as actors wandering into the theater aisles during the show. The experience surrounds you from every angle. I have a 4 and 7 year old and like all kids these ages, they tend to have problems sitting still. They were totally captivated by this show, it is incredible and we can’t wait to go back.

We saw Samson this summer and were in awe from the moment the story began. It is moving to see our favorite Bible stories come to life. The talent is incredible. Costumes and sets are stunning. Be sure and buy your tickets early. These shows do sell out. An incredible experience. We can’t wait for the be t performance.

"Awesome Sampson Showmanship "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 13, 2018 NEW
From start to finish, inside and outside, this was awesome. Plentiful parking with a view across the hills surrounding Branson. Christmas decorations were placed carefully around a most prominent building. Entry doors were well lighted and abundant. Inside the theater there were more Christmas decorations. But the mammoth display of Samson and the pillars was eye catching and became an instant photo point. The large seating area was comfortable with large isles. Then an entertaining preshow with a live animal. Nice. Then real story unfolded with actors and actresses who could be easily heard and seen. The set size was the most amazing I have ever seen. The presention was well laid out using a familiar Bible story. There was dancing and interaction with a number of live animals who were both on and off stage. What a delight! The ultimate and expected story end was supercharged and quite engaging!! The intermission provided an opportunity for treats and restrooms (never quite enough). My friends will hear of this beautiful show.
