Shepherd of the Hills
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. During intermission, you can even 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!
The show unfolds before you the epic tale of love and loss using a star-lit stage, a flock of sheep, a 1908 DeWitt automobile and even a log cabin that periodically gets set on fire for each performance. 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, the show is the collaboration of Harold Bell Wright who garnered inspiration from Ozarks hill people, and captures their spirit in this beautiful outdoor production.
