We've been to a few of Sight and Sound productions and this one definitely did not disappoint. Music, singing, acting and the stage props were all above average. Very nicely put together and an absolutely wonderful show.

This is hands down the best theater in Branson! The sets are amazing! We have been to this theater twice and wouldn’t even think of visiting Branson without going here. The acting is powerful and magnificent! Samson was spectacular and so was Joseph and the Coats of Many Colors. You definitely will not be disappointed!

My wife, my daughter and I saw the show "Samson" on Thursday night 7/19/2018. The show is amazing. So much action, animals, music, singing. A first class performance to say the least. We have seen every show that Sight & Sound has done in Branson and they haven't disappointed us yet.

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.

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.
