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.

Our experiences was terrific from the ease of purchasing the tickets, to the actual performance of the show! Parking and getting in to the venue was easy, seating was comfortable and the show was absolutely beautiful and couldn’t have been more real life. I would recommend this show to anyone! If you are in Branson at Christmas then it is a must see!

Every family should see this performance. It is fabulous! So moving and spiritual. The cast is so talented and tells this Bible story in a very audience-friendly way. It was so creative and beautiful. Theater required masks and allowed decreased capacity. I haven’t been out in 6 months til this vacation and I felt very safe.

This is a beautiful theatre with fabulous acoustics and every seat is a good seat. Saw Noah there and it was amazing. I imagine any performance there would be worthwhile.

We came to Branson just to see Noah on stage at the Sight & Sound Theater. We were not disappointed! The show was an amazing combination of breath-taking sets, live animals, and talented performers. We felt immersed and pulled back into the time of Noah and when the 2nd act opened we found ourselves seated in the belly of the Ark with the "stage" surrounding us on 3 sides... loved the experience! Well Done!

"Truly Superior Quality!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 23, 2020 NEW
Seeing a show at Sight and Sound Theatre was the main reason we took our first trip to Branson this summer. As expected, the quality of the live, normal performance of Noah was superb! The fact that many areas of the country were not allowing live theatre productions (even Sight and Sound in Pennsylvania at that time) made our appreciation of our enjoyable experience even greater! Being involved in musical theatre ourselves, we knew some of the actors on stage and enjoyed watching them and eating dinner with some of them at a local restaurant afterwards. Hopefully when we visit again (and we will) they will be allowed to take guests on behind-the-scenes tours and let the actors greet the audience in the lobby after the show again as usual.
