Description

from Miracle of Christmas
MIRACLE OF CHRISTMAS
After decades of crushing Roman rule, the Hebrew people are losing hope. When will the promised Messiah come? Into the midst of this turmoil, young Mary is told she will bear God’s Son.
Angels in heaven proclaim His birth; humble shepherds and regal kings pay Him homage. Clearly this is no ordinary baby! But who is He – really? Is He the Messiah, our Savior? Who can even believe such a thing!
Witness the event that is central to the season, brought to life on a panoramic stage with high drama, spectacular special effects and live animals – on stage and in the aisles.

THE FAMOUS STORY OF A HUMBLE BIRTH
Though it’s familiar to many, experiencing the events of Jesus’ birth always brings a new opportunity to consider such a profound plot — that God sent his only Son to live among us, ultimately providing forgiveness and the ability to receive a new life with Him for those who believe. A grand story with an uplifting message, it all began in the most unusual way: with a young girl named Mary, a perilous journey and a stable in the crowded little town of Bethlehem.

A ROYAL CELEBRATION
With enormous sets, elaborate costumes, immersive lighting and sound design, Miracle of Christmas is a jubilant re-creation of the Bible’s most celebrated story. Journey into the fields where the awestruck shepherds are met by a host of angels proclaiming the good news of the Messiah’s birth. Witness the wonder of the wise men as they bring gifts to the newborn King. And experience the joy of Mary and Joseph as they welcome their promised son into the world.

EXPLORE MIRACLE OF CHRISTMAS THROUGH SONG
As the saying goes, sound is half of what we see. Mary rejoices. Joseph doubts. And it’s all beautifully scored in this original soundtrack.

"Great theatre saw Samson great play "

This theatre and shows here are a spectacle to see. We saw Moses a few years ago and just saw Samson. The acting and music was fantastic for both plays. The sound is great and the scenes are superb. The use of live animals makes the plays even more interesting to watch. The seating is comfortable and there is lots of parking and easily accessible. The snack bar has a good variation of items for sale. No photography inside the theatre. Great performances by the actors even if you are not into biblical stories. Highly recommend.

We had never been to a Sight and Sound Theatre. We were in awe of the massive stage, the props, the acting. It was amazing. The story was Biblical and we had a great time.

The Samson show left me with a lasting impression; that's how great it was! Everything.....& everybody...was PROFESSIONAL!! I minored in music while in college and I have to say the voices of these actors were awesome! This would be a great show for younger children as well; with the live animals that are a part of the show. I highly recommend this show during your stay in Branson!

Went to see Samson on a Wednesday afternoon. If you are not familiar with Sight and Sound, please take note: this is a VERY religious, Christian theater. I am not exactly religious, but am certainly Christian. Some of the aspects of the experience here at Sight and Sound may make non-Christians uncomfortable - maybe even some Christians. I think they maybe could tone down some of the religion and it would STILL be AMAZING. All that said, the actual show was magnificent!! At times, I didn't know where to look because there was SO much to see and it was all pretty awesome. I mean - live camels, goats, pigs, horses, etcetera walking right by you down the aisle up to the stage! Actors on swings swooping out over the audience from the side stages. It was a feast for the eyes! The storytelling was great and the set was gorgeous! The performers were all extremely talented! The special effects were thrilling! Definitely makes me want to re-read the story of Samson in the Bible! Every employee I had contact with was very friendly and helpful.
