Based on Harold Bell Wright's classic novel, Shepherd of the Hills, The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama offers large-scale entertainment with a show consisting of 90 cast members and more than 20 animals, including horses, donkeys, and mules. It's not just a show; it's an experience. Right before your very eyes, you will see acted out the story that made the Ozark area famous. 

About the Outdoor Drama Show


Published in 1907, The Shepherd of the Hills tells the story of life in the rugged Ozarks in the late 1800s. As the play begins, you see the cast stressfully talking about how they may lose their homes after the drought has ruined their crops. They try to joke and lighten the mood but they all know what is coming. The opening scene sets the tone for the whole play; these people have a rough life. Throughout the rest of the play, you'll meet interesting characters and grow to love and hate them. 

The drama's first season began in 1959 and has since brought millions of Branson visitors to the outdoor stage.  Considered to be the 'story of the Ozarks', in both a spiritual and materialistic sense, this show captures the spirit of the past Ozark ancestors' spirit in this beautiful outdoor production.

During intermission, you can participate in a good old fashioned square dance. Experience the history of this unique area of the Ozark Mountains come to life with all the action and drama of this timeless tale!

Guests who are looking to add some extra adventure can also add on the Inspiration Tower admission, which allows them to see the beautiful Ozark Mountain Region from new heights! 

This is a perfect addition to your Branson vacation!

While the view was very pretty, the cost of ten dollars per person i think was a little much.
