Samson at Sight & Sound Theatre

The story of “Samson” comes to life in the Sights & Sound Theatre with spectacular staging and unforgettable special effects! He defeated an entire army and slayed a lion with his bare hands. But there’s a catch to Samson’s superpower—no one can know the source of his strength. And that’s where the trouble begins.

Samson soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. And it’s here where he will face his greatest challenge. Journey with this unlikely hero as he battles the Philistines, as well as his own personal calling. It’s an unforgettable, uplifting Bible story that will literally bring the house down!
