Saw the show "Jonah", a spectacular depiction of the biblical story. Excellent acting and singing, fabulous sets, and stunning visual imagery the equal of most anything I've seen on Broadway.

This was our second visit to Sight and Sound Theatre and we were not disappointed. Jonah was as impressive as Noah. It was tremendous how they made the audience feel like they were actually in the water, I will leave it at that. If you want to feel like you are "in the show" then sit in the lower seats.... More

We were in the area on a cold spring day and looking for something inside to do. Some friends had mentioned that they had seen the show and enjoyed it. We checked the reviews and it had high ratings so we decided to go. To be honest I wondered what they could do to a Bible story to make it... More

The last time we were at Sight and Sound was when we still lived in Pennsylvania 8 years ago and saw Noah in Lancaster. We really missed the show and planned this Jonah show to be the highlight of our Branson vacation. I cannot say enough about the quality of the show, the sets were incredible, the costumes colorful and... More

This was on our "must see" list on our Branson trip. It's a top notch production, but some things could have been better. The guys in black suits doing the glow light fish were very visible because the background remained lit. The script is about 45 minutes too long, very drawn out story line and I fell asleep at one...

This theater experience was by far my favorite. I'd recommend that theater to anybody. Those people truly make the Bible come alive and their stories are very accurate to what Scripture actually says. The singers and performers are excellent! Every single seat in that place has a great view on the play.

The theatre is a sight to see itself but on this night Jonah was being produced and it is indeed a production! Live animals and use of the entire theatre kept everyone entertained as the story of Jonah and the whale was told. Recommended for the entire family!

We took our two kids (11 and 9) to see Jonah last week, and it was wonderful! We were all on the edges of our seats the entire time. Definitely recommend it! It did last longer than I expected, though. The show began at 7:30pm, and it was after 10:00pm when we finally got out of the theater. Kind of... More

We saw Johah last night and enjoyed it very much. The first half of the show was largely fictional and was a little draggy. The second half was the actual story of Jonah's disobedience to God with its consequences. We loved the second half! The fish, whale, and Jonah inside the whale were awesome! The special effects were extremely well... More

I am a big Broadway show person. I have been to dozens of shows and was not disappointed in this at all. In fact, not only was it on par with Broadway, it exceeded my expectations. The lighting, sound, stage music and acting were all top notch! We took our grandchildren (ages 2 and 4) and they loved it! I've... More
