SIGHT & SOUND THEATRES®
ANNOUNCES ‘JESUS’ FOR 2018
The Greatest Rescue Story of All Time Bursts to Life on Stage
LANCASTER, Penn. – March 14, 2017 – Known worldwide for their biblical spectaculars on a panoramic, 300-foot stage, Sight & Sound Theatres® will launch the life story of Jesus for the first time in its 40-year history.
“If ever a story was epic, this is it,” Sight & Sound CEO Matt Neff said. “After showcasing Moses, Jonah, Samson and many others, we are bringing the singular life of Jesus to the stage, who forever changed the world.”

Jesus is an action-packed musical stage adventure – a journey alongside the most important person to ever walk the earth, and the everyday people whose lives he transformed forever.
Following the 2017 return of Jonah to Sight & Sound’s 2,000-seat theater in Lancaster, Jesus debuts March 10, 2018, and runs through Jan. 5, 2019. Audiences will experience the story amidst a three-sided stage enlivened by one of the largest, state-of-the-art LED screens in a theatrical venue—along with Sight & Sound’s famous animals…on stage and in the aisles.
“We prayerfully choose every story we tell,” Sight & Sound Chief Creative Officer Josh Enck said. “The debut of Jesus for 2018 stands on years of prayer, creativity and effort by the entire Sight & Sound team.”
THE HEART OF THE STORY
Jesus’ story may be familiar but his actions still surprise us. He befriends outcasts and heals the hurting. He challenges social norms and confronts hypocrisy. He sets sail with fishermen and reasons with religious scholars. The lives he touches are never the same. From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, no place—and no person—is beyond the reach of his love.
