For two magical nights in September, Sight & Sound Theatres’ production, Moses, will move audiences across the United States thanks to a deal with Fathom Events, following the success of Jonah in 2017. In the show, moviegoers will see how Moses became an unlikely hero who God calls into action from his birth by the Nile River through the Red Sea toward the Promised Land. The live production, filmed in front of audiences in Lancaster, PA, and Branson, MO, will debut on September 13 and 15.
Executive producer Josh Enck shared, “The burning bush, the plagues, the parting of the Red Sea and the Ten Commandments—the story of Moses is massive. But at its heart, this is an intimate story of the man who climbed a mountain to meet God.”
In theaters, audiences will see the musical, but they will also discover the forty-year history of Sight & Sound Theatres that has blessed more than twenty-three million visitors worldwide. Over forty years ago, Sight & Sound Theatres began in rural Pennsylvania, where a dairy farmer went from producing milk to producing live entertainment with a purpose. With its two theater locations, the company continues to bring Bible stories to life on stage, with massive sets, live animals, and special effects, drawing in 1.5 million visitors a year.
The action of Moses takes place on a three-hundred-foot panoramic stage and up and down the aisles amidst the theater audience. Thanks to two years’ of work, it shows off sixty sets featuring dozens of horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, goats, and rats! All of the action takes place set to the score by Don Harper (National Treasure, The Lion King 1 ½).
“This high-quality production of Moses will be a thrilling experience for attendees of all ages,” added Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “We are excited to bring another Sight & Sound event to movie theaters that displays the unique multi-dimensional detail put into their titles.”
Showtimes are Thursday, September 13 at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, September 15 at 12:55 p.m.
