Sight & Sound Theatres is the largest faith-based live theatre in the country and has been described as "Christian Broadway." Last year, nearly a million people from around the world came to experience a production at one of Sight & Sound's theatres in Lancaster County, Pa., and Branson, MO. The Lancaster County location is one of the top three theatre destinations in the country.
In 2016, the organization celebrated 40 years of public productions, but Sight & Sounds roots go even deeper. Founder Glenn Eshelman, a native of Lancaster County, began to develop his gifting as an artist as a young child on his family's farm. His landscape painting led to photographing inspirational scenes that were then presented to churches, schools and civic organizations across the U.S. with a single slide projector and screen, along with a turntable and microphone to provide sound.
In May 2008, Sight & Sound's brand new, state-of-the-art, 2000-seat theatre opened its doors to the public in Branson, MO., with Noah the Musical.
Many inspiring productions have come to the Sight & Sound stages over the years, such as Colors of Praise, The Splendor of Easter, Joys of Christmas, The Eternal Flame, Miracle of Christmas, Noah - the Musical, Abraham & Sarah - A Journey of Love, Daniel and the Lions' Den, Behold the Lamb, Ruth, Psalms of David, Voices of Christmas, In the Beginning, Joseph and Jonah.
