Sight & Sound Theatres was founded by Glenn Eshelman, who was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He began as a landscape artist and then moved on to photographing scenes inspired by the Christian faith, and presented them to faith-based organizations across the country. The name "Sight & Sound" references a parable from Matthew 13:10-23 of the Christian Holy Bible. The Sign & Sound Theatres website states that the company's mission is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sow the World of God into the lives of their customers, guests and fellow workers by visualizing and dramatizing the scriptures. The first Sight & Sound Auditorium opened in July 1976, and then the company opened a 2000-seat theatre in Branson, Missouri, in 2008, featuring "Noah The Musical."

Some of the shows presented by Sight & Sound include "Colors of Praise," "The Splendor of Easter," "Joys of Christmas," "The Eternal Flame" and "Miracle of Christmas." More productions include "Noah The Musical," "Abraham & Sarah - A Journey of Love," "Daniel and the Lions' Den," "Behold the Lamb" and "Ruth." Other favirotes over the years have included "Psalms of David," "Voices of Christmas," "In the Beginning," "Joseph," "Jonah" and "Moses."
