Sight & Sound Theatres bring biblical stories to life within a state-of-the-art, 2,000-seat theatre located in Lancaster, PA with an identical one in Branson, MO. Founded by Glenn and Shirley Eshelman with just a slide projector over 40 years ago, Sight & Sound now encompasses a massive infrastructure of people, buildings, and even animals that help create memorable experiences for the more than one million people that come through its doors each year. Now, its current production, Jesus, is equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology, including one of the largest LED screens ever used in a theatrical production.
