The play was well written written and, it was well performed. The costumes were period authentic. I loved the animal interaction. However, the food was not impressive!
Music at dinner was great. Food mediocre, play too long needs music with it. Story good

Music at dinner was great, food mediocre, play too long slow story needed music and songs. Rather expensive, bigger restroom facilities at play area
Good show

While some might consider this play a little “corny”, I enjoyed it, and it’s ozark history. I also enjoyed the music. Not all of the acting was top notch, but this is Brandon, not Hollywood (& thankful for that).

I’m sorry to say we were disappointed. We ended up leaving during the break. Since everything was just in one setting, it just seemed very long and drawn out. I believe there could have been more action to ooh and ahh the crowds. It was hard to follow the storyline. On top of that the seating was quite uncomfortable. For a show that has been going on for so many years, we just expected that they would have put more laughs, more action, more to keep the crowd lively.

Our Hearing problems did not help ….. but I didn’t grasp the story. I expected a music show …. My fault I guess for not researching. The best thing: it was outdoors. Pandemic directed outdoors as our choice. Also we were grateful for staff who assisted us in an exit at intermission when I began to feel unwell.

Service was great getting tickets to Shepard of the hills, but the outdoor show was cancelled because of weather. Viator online text was able to refund money the same evening. Although it would take several business days to show up in our account.
Loved the experience!
Rosalie_S, Jun 2021
I loved patriotic atmosphere and I felt I was in a part of the country that loves and celebrates our nation. I really appreciated that the pledge of allegiance was done before the play. The play was an awesome experience with well performing actors/actresses. Great story with some very realistic moments.
Was not showing
