Ok, first off I have to start with a disclaimer. I have never had the chance to see a show at the Sight & Sound Theater here in Branson! Shocking, I know. So when the opportunity presented itself for me to see Miracle of Christmas I of course jumped on it, being that Christmas is my favorite time of year.
Upon my arrival, I was in awe of how beautiful this theater was, both on the inside and outside. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas! After browsing around the theater for a few minutes, we headed to our seats, which were awesome. Right in the middle for a perfect view of everything that was going on around us. (You’re probably wondering why around is in italics, we will get to that later)
The goal of the Sight & Sound Theaters is to bring Bible stories to life and they do just that. The beginning of Miracle of Christmas starts all the way back with the betrothal of Mary and Joseph and goes through all the way through the birth and announcement of the Christ child.
The sets and scenes are truly breathtaking. The sides of the theater literally open and you are surrounded with the performance. Animals walk down through aisles and you truly get an up close and personal experience with this story.
One of my favorite scenes from the performance had to be Scene 3 called “Heaven”. You can imagine what that was about. Angels came floating in from the sky and literally from all directions in the theater. They all ended up on the main stage and performed a mesmerizing song and dance. At the end of the scene God is talking to his son telling him that he is sending him to Earth. It is beautifully done.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance of Miracle of Christmas and cannot wait to come back next year to see Jonah which opens in March.
