Sight and Sound Theatre is our most favorite place to go in Branson. The plays are as good as a Broadway play and much cheaper. Samson is playing this year and we hope to come back next year for Noah. We'll go everytime we're in Branson. We highly recommend it!

Beautiful theater but uncomfortable seating. They didn't direct people to enter at the correct side of a row. So up and down and bumped by each passing guest in front or back. Enjoyed the show even though I was a little lost at times. The set changing was incredible. And of course loved the animals. Especially the llamas. Had a little difficulty in hearing all that was said but my heart was filled with joy with the message of grace. Our first visit and would definitely recommend! Just be patient upon going in.. they could use more help in this area. Also if you have trouble with stairs be sure to request the main level. Would see again !!

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. However, since the shows run approximately 2 ½ hours in length, we have found they are best suited for children age 5 and up.

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.
