Imagine witnessing the most beloved stories of the Bible come to life on one of the largest stages in the country. Sight & Sound Theatres®, described by some as “the Christian Broadway,” will premiere the epic Bible story of Noah on May 24, 2008, at its new theatre in Branson, Mo., a month ahead of the originally scheduled opening. Tickets are now on sale!
The new Branson theatre, located at 1001 Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, is 339,000 square feet with a stage area of 26,550 square feet and seating for 2,085 patrons.
The production’s 300-foot stage that wraps around three sides of the audience, 40-foot high sets, cast of 45 actors, elaborate costumes, breathtaking special effects, and hundreds of live and animatronic animals captivate and transport audience members as they experience Noah and his family’s journey of persecution, faithfulness, hope and redemption.
Sight & Sound Theatres is the nation’s largest professional Christian theatre company and one of the most-attended live theatres on the East Coast. Founded in 1976 by Glenn and Shirley Eshelman, Sight & Sound Theatres has produced spectacular, epic stories of the Bible at its original location in Lancaster County, Pa., where more than 800,000 theatergoers from across the country and around the world attend shows annually.
