"After Christmas trip to Branson and a must see show Samson"
January 2019
This performance was amazing. Fun and full of energy. Never dull and very true to what the Bible says about Samson. In fact I had to brush up on my knowledge of the real story during intermission. Very organized and planned event. The staff was very helpful and nice in every occasion. My Mother had a walker and the staff tucked it away in a safe spot and retrieved it after the show. Wonderful experience and will return for the next show coming up after Samson.

Where do you start? Well, it is a "state of the arts" theater in all ways. Not a bad seat in the house! Live animals. Outstanding acoustics and lighting. Mix that with an incredible story, music score, awesome props, and truly outstanding cast of performers.........You have a "MEGA" hit in the making. In short, the building is a self-contained world of its own: Ticket sales, gift shops, concessions, clean restrooms, and nice displays. On top of that, the entertainment is for ALL AGES! Having said that, employees go out of their way to help. A couple more important perks. Plenty of parking with live assistance. Handicap parking is a priority. Discount tickets for service veterans. People, it does not get any better than that.

Quite a show! The sets are worth seeing alone. You add the amazing vocals, humor, and animals and it’s a must do. Seats are small would be my only negative comment.

Will I be seated if I arrive late?
In order to ensure the safety of all guests, actors and animal actors (who use the aisles in darkened show conditions), we cannot guarantee that we will be able to seat you immediately. The theater doors will close promptly at show time. If you arrive after the start of the show, the House Manager will determine when and where you will be seated.

At the theater, full-time, trained security staff is on patrol at all times. In addition, electronic surveillance is in use. The theater reserves the right to inspect any bag, container, or package brought into the theater.

Are children welcome at the show?
Yes. As a family business that values and believes in quality family time, we delight in creating memorable experiences for the entire family. Children of all ages are welcome.

If you have a young child that becomes restless during the performance, you’re welcome to accompany your child to our Family Room as needed, where you can watch a live video feed of the show on a TV.

If my child sits on my lap, do they need a ticket?
Children under the age of 3 may sit on a parent’s lap and do not require a ticket. Children age 3 and older do require a ticket and their own seat. We offer booster seats to provide young children with the best possible view. If you think your child may need a booster seat, please speak with one of the ushers when you arrive.
