Being able to see this afternoon's epic musical performance of Joseph at Branson's larger-than-life Sight and Sound Theatre was an experience I will long remember - and treasure!
Joseph tells the 4,000-year-old biblical story of a boy who triumphed over incredible adversity - including the betrayal of his brothers - with the grace and mercy of God. Joseph's inspirational journey is full of twists and turns and as colorful as Joseph's famous coat. The message of integrity and forgiveness to heal broken relationships and reunite families is relevant today - and powerfully told in Joseph, as evidenced by the tear-filled eyes of those of us in the audience.
Joseph features stage performances by 40 actors and dozens of live and exotic animals, teamed with brilliant costumes and Egyptian stage designs, heart-warming musical scores and fabulously choreographed dance numbers.
The Sight and Sound Theatre in Branson was the perfect setting for a show of this caliber. The 20,000-square-foot stage accommodates sets up to 40 feet tall and boasts state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, pyrotechnics capabilities, impressive special effects including 3D video imaging. To call this theatre incredible, would be an understatement.
Seeing Joseph is a life-changing experience - the kind you'll welcome and appreciate!
Note: Sight and Sound Theatres is a for-profit ministry that operates without charitable support. Performances of "Joseph" will continue in Branson through December 29, 2012.
