While visiting Branson, we were able to see Jonah at the Site & Sound Theatre. This show left me amazed and speechless. I’ve read and heard the story of Jonah before, but never experienced it quite like this , Sight & Sound Theatre truly does bring the Bible to life! Sight & Sound Theatres showcases the stories of the Bible in the form of musical theater.
The special effects, costumes, acting and lighting and sound effects are top of the line. Live animals were an added attraction. I felt like I was in the whale with Jonah. The set design is fantastic from jelly fish dropping from the ceiling to a huge whale balloon coming out into the audience along with the whole aquatic scene, it was truly amazing!
They really nailed making the audience feel as though we were underwater , the lighting, the sounds, the various fish “swimming” around the stage and up the aisles, the coral and seaweed, and of course, the whale! Other set favorites included the ship, the ship looks like a real ship, they way they made it was so life like.
This story is told in musical form and is fit for all ages. What Sight & Sound Theatres does is take a Biblical story and make its own spin on it, adding humorous moments to help tell the story better and make everyone laugh. The costumes were so colorful and pretty. This was a wonderful story.
If your ever visiting Branson, make sure and stop by the Sight & Sound Theatre and check out their show. I highly recommend them!
