Sight and Sound’s Miracle of Christmas

Sight and Sound TheaterThis weekend was a busy one for me! First I did Silver Dollar City’s Run the Lights 5k event, then I went to Sight and Sound Theatre’s Miracle of Christmas show.

Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect. All I had heard of the production was that there were live animals and some kind of laser lights.

Sight and Sound did not disappoint.

Yes, there were horses, camels, and goats as well as theatrical smoke and lighting, but there were also immaculate costumes, sets, and a stage that wrapped 180 degrees around the theater. The dramatized event of the Biblical story was compelling, keeping my attention invested in the characters and story line.

The story begins on the night of Mary and Joseph’s betrothal, successfully setting up the audience’s connection with both characters. The historical context of the Israelite’s plight within the Roman Empire is used as a realistic backdrop for the events of the play.  Many of the cultural and social norms of the Jewish people are portrayed to the benefit of the story, making the viewer very compassionate towards Mary during her pregnancy and subsequent outcast status.

Overall, it’s a great show and overall experience. I highly recommend you see it!
