Shepherd of the Hills
Based on Harold Bell Wrights 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 horses, donkey and mules. You'll even get to participate in a good old fashioned square dance during intermission. Come and experience all of the action and drama of the this timeless tale as history of this unique area is brought to life!
The show tells 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 is periodically set on fire for every performance. The drama's first season began in 1959 and has since brought millions of Branson visitors to the outdoor stage. The show is considered to be the 'story of the Ozarks,' in both a spiritual and materialistic sense. Harold Bell Wright garnered inspiration from the hill people of the Ozarks, and now his drama lives in this beautiful outdoor production.
