Sight and Sound Theatres
Sight & Sound Theatres has been described in many ways: ‘the largest faith-based live theatre in America,’ ‘the Christian Broadway,’ ‘one of the top three theatre destinations on the East Coast’ . . . and the list goes on. Each year, about 800,000 people come from across the country and around the world to experience a production at one of Sight & Sound’s two theatres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
The company’s purpose is to visualize and dramatize the Bible through live stage productions, illustrating truth in the same way that Jesus did, by storytelling. Sight & Sound’s original musical theatre productions are characterized by the spectacular. Most shows feature a professional cast of more than 50, elaborate sets towering up to 40 feet high, hundreds of costumes, and trained animals ranging from camels and horses to dogs and flight-trained birds. Spectacular special effects permeate the shows and include massive set pieces that rise up through the stage floor, 3D video imaging, pyrotechnics, and artistic lighting effects including lasers. The company’s two theatres are the 2,000-seat Millennium Theatre and the 600-seat Living Waters Theatre, the company’s original location.
