The 2,000-seat Sight & Sound Theatres – with locations both in Branson and Lancaster, Pennsylvania – is one of the top things to do in Branson. The theater has been called the "Christian Broadway" since it stages shows with Biblical themes. Some of the recent musicals include “Samson,” "Jonah," and "Miracle of Christmas." Billing itself as family-friendly, Branson's Sight & Sound outpost even has a glass-encased family room, which allows parents to care for young children and watch the performance on a TV without serving as a distraction to the audience.

But it's not just families that enjoyed the choreography and elaborately costumed performances. Reviewers of all ages consistently described the shows as "amazing," praising the high level of talent, as well as the special effects and overall atmosphere. Thanks to the stadium-style seating, many visitors said there's not a bad seat in the house (though some recommended booking a seat in the back half of the theater in the center section for the best view). Recent visitors also enjoyed the one-hour Behind the Scenes tour, which is currently offered from mid-March to mid-December. Travelers said the tour guides were friendly, informative and gave theatergoers a better understanding of the show’s spectacle.

Sight & Sound is located off the Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, less than 10 miles east of Silver Dollar City. The theater welcomes families with kids of all ages, though it says the shows are ideal for kids ages 3 and older. Because shows tend to sell out quickly, Sight & Sound recommends guests book their tickets months in advance to ensure seats. Tickets vary in price from $23 to $45, depending on age. The Behind the Scenes tour is an additional $5 per person. For more information, visit Sight & Sound Theatres' website.
