At The Shepherd of
the Hills Outdoor Theatre, Harold Bell
Wright's epic story of love, loss, power,
hardship, and the true meaning of life
is immortalized every night on our star-lit
stage. It takes over 80 actors and actresses,
40 horses, a flock of sheep, several guns
and rifles, an actual burning log cabin,
and a vintage 1908 DeWitt automobile to
make the live action performance the legend
that it is today.
Since our first season
in 1959-60, the outdoor drama has entertained
millions of Branson visitors. People who
came to see the show as children come
back to bring their own families. The
cast members exhibit the loyalty and affection
they have for the story itself. Several
of them have been in the drama since its
inception. The Shepherd of the Hills is
not just another Ozarks show - it is the
story of the Ozarks.
