SAMSON. He’s the original superhero; able to defeat entire armies and slay lions in a single Bible story. But his superpower comes with a catch: he must follow the rules. And that’s where the trouble begins. As Samson resists the Philistines—and his own personal calling—he soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. But has he lost hope? Experience this biblical drama in jaw-dropping scale as it comes to life through a world-class cast, spectacular special effects and live animals—on stage and in the aisles. Experience an unforgettable, uplifting thrill that literally brings down the house at Sight & Sound Theatre.
