If you are looking for a place to visit, let me suggest that you plan a trip to The Sight and Sound Theatre just outside Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Billed as “the largest faith-based live theatre in the country”, this theatre and its sister in Branson, MO were visited by nearly a million people from around the world last year.
We have just returned from seeing “Samson” at the 2000 seat theatre that is filled to capacity twice each day. The production was outstanding, inspirational, well done with remarkable talent and almost unbelievable special effects (Samson’s destruction of the temple at the end of the drama will leave you spell bound). But even more impressive is the emphasis that all of their productions (We have now seen 4 of them) give to Jesus Christ and the salvation that he offers.
These productions are more than entertainment; they are intentional efforts to call people to Jesus Christ by making the Bible come alive. At the end of the drama, an invitation to receive Christ is offered with counselors available to assist anyone who is interested in receiving Christ as their Lord and Savior.
In a day when good, clean, wholesome entertainment is scarce, it is encouraging to see people from around the world flocking to hear the gospel message through Christian drama.
Over the years, the Sight and Sound Theatres have presented the Biblical stories of Noah, Abraham, Daniel, Joseph, Jonah and Moses and more. By popular demand, Jonah will be the featured Biblical drama returning for 2017.
If you plan to go, be sure that you make reservations online before you travel and that you have an e-z pass for travel on the highways. You can get all the information you need for shows, schedules, prices, etc at www.sight-sound.com. You will not be disappointed.
