Sight & Sound Theatres

Sight & Sound Theatres is the nation's largest Christian theatre company and one of the highest attended live theatres on the East Coast and in the Midwest. This inspiring family experience includes a majestic 2000-seat theatre, a massive 300-foot wrap-around stage, a professional cast, spectacular sets up to 40 feet high and a variety of live animals. Go back in time and witness the greatest stories of the Bible as they come to life right before your eyes!

Whatever Sight and Sound is showing when you come to Brandon, DON’T MISS IT! We’ve seen Ruth, Joseph, Jonah, the Miracle of Christmas, and (most recently) Samson. They have all been top notch. Please be aware that the writers/producers take quite a bit of liberty with the stories, although they definitely try to not add anything that would go against what the Bible says. I have a few serious issues with some of their basic doctrines, but I know that going in. I don’t go to learn the Bible (I have a degree in Theology). I go there to enjoy a family-friendly, Bible-based drama. I highly recommend it!

The show was professional and polished—a little too polished. This family is definitely talented, and the music was fun and diverse. The light show was impressive, but I got the feeling that a lot of it was purposely distracting from the performers, who lacked energy—probably because they were lip syncing and not playing their instruments half the time.

The end of the show employed a blatant tactic to force a standing ovation, by paying tribute to US veterans with a few seconds of the National Anthem. It’s not necessary to stand for the anthem, but most people don’t know that, so people started standing up. Far be it from me to remain sitting when a Midwest crowd stands to show their patriotism. I didn’t want to be beaten up in the parking lot after being taken for a commie. So I gave a standing ovation along with the rest of the crowd. At least it got people moving out of the building faster.

We were entertained, and it wasn’t a waste of two hours, but we’ll probably pick something else next time.

College of the Ozarks

College of the Ozarks, known as "Hard Work U," is more than a college. It's a destination with tons of family-friendly activities, including two museums, an old-fashioned grist mill, fruitcake and jelly kitchen, stained glass studio, and exquisite 4-star dining at Dobyns Dining Room in The Keeter Center. It's a great way to spend a day while you are in the Branson area. The only thing that requires admission is the Ralph Foster Museum ($6 Adults, $5 Seniors, and Free to all 18 and under). Dobyns Dining Room offers a farm to table experience without breaking the bank. Come learn why this unique college is nationally known.

Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church

Reviewed By tony k - Owatonna, Minnesota

We always attend mass here when in Branson. This is a newer church in a pleasant setting. The locals and clergy are very friendly and seem appreciative that visitors take time to stop by. You will experience an awkward delay leaving, as the large amount of vehicles have some difficulty blending into traffic onto W 76 Blvd....just allow an extra 5-10 minutes.

Jerry Presley's God and Country Theatre

Reviewed By Cheryl P - Wichita, Kansas

The Jerry Presley "Elvis Live !" tribute show at Jerry's God & Country Theatre is by far the best Elvis' memories in Branson. Jerry's stage presence is stunning. The band & backup singers are superb and add to the extremely professional performance. It is obvious that Jerry truly enjoys performing his tribute to his cousin Elvis. We come to see Jerry each trip that we make to Branson and his show just keeps on inspiring and getting better. Don't miss all three of Jerry's Elvis Tribute Shows. Best value on HWY 76 for sure.

Just Saw Hot Rods and High Heels and could sit through it again today. For those who love 50s music, this is a must see. It certainly brings back a lot of memories. These young people have so much energy and look like they are having a ball performing. I highly recommend this show. I think it would be great for the teenagers of today to hear some of the music the teenagers grooved to in the olden days. Ha
