Samson at Sight & Sound Theatres® Branson
In its last season, Samson at Sight and Sound Theatres in Branson, MO is sure to create an unforgettable experience for all who attend the show. By combining original scripts and music with flawless stage production, on stage acting, colorful characters, beautiful costumes, and biblical stories that give true insight into God’s word, the theater truly creates unforgettable moments that the entire family will be entranced by.
This show tells the story of Samson as he follows his life calling and fulfills his path of obeying God. See Samson battle the Philistines, slay a lion with his bare hands, and wrestle with personal demons like temptation, losing his strength, and being blinded in ways that you never imagined! This Bible story is put on in awe-inspiring scale with a professional cast to create the greatest production of the story.
Samson's parable is one of triumph and tribulation, with his own personal battle getting in his way at times. He's given the ultimate superpower of strength, with the only stipulation being that he must follow the rules and obey God. Proving a difficult to obey, he ends up losing his strength and is held captive by the Philistines, who even blind him out of retaliation for Samson having killed so many of their people prior to his capture. After his strength had been taken away, Samson pleads to God for him to return his strength to allow Samson to take revenge on the Philistines for his mistreatment and having been blinded. Samson's strength was returned, and he killed what is said to have been upwards of 3,000 people, himself included, when he took down the pillars of the temple in which they were all housed.

Sight and Sound is a beloved theater in Branson, though this amazing theater originally began its epic productions in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Both of the Sight and Sound locations together host more than a million people each year who travel to see these epic performances. However, the theaters roots as a side show have truly humbled the family who owns it. The Eshelman’s Sight and Sound Story began in Lancaster County with the founder, Glenn Eshelman. After spending years dedicating himself to painting and photography, he sold off all his art and opened up a traveling side show in the 60s. It was the first ever Sight and Sound production! In 1976, it found its first permanent home which eventually went on to set the foundation for the theater in Lancaster County. The show wasn’t always so big! It used to be played on a projector - now each original show unfolds on a 300 foot panoramic stage in its brand new performance venue. The beautiful Branson version of Sight and Sound was opened in 2008 and has seen just as much booming success as the Lancaster County Location.
