The VMAs may have Beyoncé, and the Oscars may have George and Amal. But in Lancaster, we have biblical characters and animals walking the red carpet!
the occasion was opening night of Sight & Sound Theatres’ hit show, Samson, in which walls really do fall. Sight & Sound, of course, is Glenn and Shirley Eshelman’s “leap of faith” that has become one of Lancaster’s major entertainment venues, attracting more than 1 million visitors per year (here and in Branson, Missouri). Like other Sight & Sound biblical-based productions, Samson is the story of faith, courage and redemption. Unlike other productions, it takes a cue from pop culture by portraying Samson as the “original super hero.”
As for the animals that paraded down the red carpet, Sight & Sound is their home. Barns and kennels on the property shelter a “Noah’s Ark” of animals that include horses, sheep, camels, dogs, donkeys and more.
Samson is on stage at Sight & Sound through December. Visit sight-sound.com for ticket information.
