The world of live entertainment is full of wonders that can captivate our senses and and transport us through the annals of history. Among these, the famous Sight & Sound Theatre stands out as a true beacon of inspiration, creativity, and storytelling.

Sight & Sound Theatre is the largest faith-based live theatre in the country. Combining cutting-edge technology, awe-inspiring sets, and heartwarming narratives, this theatrical institution has been redefining the way people experience live performances. Let’s explore the history of the Sight & Sound Theatre and how they’ve grown to become one of the most incredible theatre companies in the world.


The Genesis of Sight & Sound Theatre

During the mid-1970s, Glenn Eshelman, Founder, with a desire to serve God embarked on a journey to captivate audiences with the stories from the Bible across the United States. His multimedia presentations also became the launching pad for putting the accounts on stage. At first, Glenn showed his productions in churches and auditoriums as slide shows in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until 1976 that he built the first Sight & Sound Theatre in a small building in Strasburg.

Hi Steve, The restaurant was nicely set up and they were ready for us even though we were a little early... Kudos to the bus driver, Jesse. His service to our seniors was excellent. The play was great so much so, that one of the stars came on board our bus before we left to thank us for coming and how much they enjoyed our being there. Looking forward to our trip in September!

Hi Cathy! I just wanted to thank you - we had a great trip! Students and teachers all had a blast. On another note I wanted to say how happy I was, in particular, with the bus company especially my driver Benitio. I have an infant at home that I am breast feeding. He gave me full range of his bus so that I could pump. He took his stuff and napped on one of the other guy's busses, showed me how to work the door and was very accommodating. We will talk next year! Thank you! T. Johnson

Dear Steve and Cathy, Before I begin my day here, I just had to take a moment to thank you for a LOVELY Trip. The buses were absolutely Gorgeous, the food on the boat was somewhat better than last year, the music was so much better, we danced and danced. Everyone complimented me on this trip even when I went to church yesterday. I really enjoyed this this year, and I am certain they will talk me into doing this again next year, but we must have the SAME BUSES. Thank you both for making this trip a TOTAL SUCCESS, can’t wait to plan our next adventure. Diana

Good evening Steve and Kathy, I just wanted to say a very big 'Thank You'!!! Our trip was truly 'AMAZING'. From beginning to end the trip was awesome. Our driver, Mr Benito arrived on time and was perfect through out the trip. He drove with ease and got us to all of our destinations on time. The bus was perfect and everything we discussed was given to us. Our group had a beautiful time at the museum and the MLK memorial. Our tour guide Ms. Lynette was awesome. Her knowledge of Washington DC was phenomenal. As a first time trip planner you both helped me plan a trip that was just awesome. A great time was had by all. Even when we had a little 'bump in the road' you both made it your priority to contact me and the restaurant and speak on our group's behalf to solve the problem and to apologize for the restaurant's error. I really want to thank you both for that. Sincerely, D. Brewster
