“Even the locals like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We're local and Moses is the second production we've seen here. It is fantastic--the singing, the portrayals, the animals (I thought I'd be trampled by a stallion running straight at me at one point)--the whole thing, is just a wonderful experience. The special effects were amazing, especially the staff to serpent trick...except for the frogs...that one was a little disappointing especially since the local TV commercials make it look like there would be live frogs. Rubber frogs being spewed from pottery didn't quite cut it.
We have sat in the stadium-style (non-orchestra) seats for the two shows we've seen and I'm convinced these are the best.
Be prepared for an alter call at the end, right after Jesus makes an appearance in an old-Testament story.
My only complaint was parking. There are 2 lots right in front of the theater and for some reason they closed off 2 of them completely and opened the third to handicapped. The rest of us had to park way off to the side of the property, beyond the tour buses even. It was a bitterly cold windy March day--why inconvenience your guests, S&S? Blocking off 2 accessible lots seemed to suit your needs, not your customers'.

“Never Disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

This was my third time to see a show at the Sight and Sound Theater and I am never disappointed. Their shows are outstanding. The multimedia aspects of the show are incredible. The use of live animals and special visual effects amazed all of us.
There was a technical problem after the intermission which resulted in a delay of the show. They kept us well informed and should us a video to help pass the time while they worked at finding a way to continue with the production. In the second half, it was clear that one side of the stage was inoperable, but the show must go on and it did! Well worth the 6 hour drive to get there!

“Magnificent! We were spellbound!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We loved seeing "Moses"!. What a powerful portrayal of this very important story! The music is beautiful, and the performers are outstanding! Bravo to everyone who has a part in making this performance so wonderful. The lights, costumes, and sets are amazing, and we were so caught up in the story that the time flew by. It is realistic, and true to the Bible -- thank you for the accuracy. I love the incorporation of the animals. Using the aisles and the 180 degree staging made us feel very much a part. This was great in every way!
