"After Christmas trip to Branson and a must see show Samson"
January, 2019
This performance was amazing. Fun and full of energy. Never dull and very true to what the Bible says about Samson. In fact I had to brush up on my knowledge of the real story during intermission. Very organized and planned event. The staff was very helpful and nice in every occasion. My Mother had a walker and the staff tucked it away in a safe spot and retrieved it after the show. Wonderful experience and will return for the next show coming up after Samson.

"A MUST See when visiting Branson !!!!!!!!!!"
January, 2019
We had never been to the Sight and Sound Theatre before and we didnt know what to expect. My husband and I couldnt have been more blessed and thrilled to have seen SAMSON ! The grounds were decorated with the largest Christmas tree ! The inside of the theatre was a feast for the eyes! The ushers were so loving and courteous! It was our 16th Wedding Anniversary and an usher gave us a free Moses dvd! We were overwhelmed ! The play was beyond anything we had experienced before! The live animals, the buildings falling down, the excellent sound, the actors were just wonderful !!!!!!! We cna hardly wait to come next December and see the next play ! The alter call at the end of the play was so moving ! We will be telling everyone we know that have to see all the plays at the Sight and Sound Theatre! This was the HIGHLIGHT of our Anniversary trip to Branson !!!!!!!!!!! God Bless You !!!!!!!!
( We ALWAYS buy our tickets at RESERVE BRANSON, they get us the VERY BEST seats !!!!!!!!!)

"WALLS WILL FALL"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 15, 2019 NEW
The Samson show here was a huge stage production. The "walls will fall" theme literally came true. The theatre was magnificent. The cast was huge. The stage was enormous. This musical action show is based upon the Samson in the Bible. The special effects were astonishing. The acting and singing were excellent. This was a spectacular show that brought the Bible to life. Christians need to see this show. Non'Christians must see this Bible based show.

We have visited this theatre for the live play of Noah and Samson. Both shows were excellent! The theatre is gorgeous and the staff are very professional and helpful in every way. We enjoy attending this theatre and it will remain number '1' on our list while visiting Branson. Great family place as we took our 5 granddaughters. They enjoyed every second of this vacation. I recommend wholeheartedly!

"Exceptional Show!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 08, 2019 NEW
I have visited Sight & Sound in Branson 3 times and each time I am blown away by the beauty, the singing, and the story. It is so easy to be swept away by the stories that they show you on the stage. I was taken on a journey to another land and time with humor, singing, dancing, and even animals!! Everyone in our family loved it and our friends loved it too! These stories are comparable to Broadway but all about bringing the Bible to life before your eyes!! BRAVO!!
