BRANSON, Mo. — After two months of stilled curtains and darkened lights, an Ozarks staple reopened last night down in Branson
“The Shepherd of the Hills is back in business.”
The Shepherd of the Hills began its 58th season Friday night with a full house.
The show was forced to close down in May due to decreasing attendance and funding. However, new management purchased the show hoping it would carry on to future generations.
“I was just heartbroken when the show ended on the last day we were here. The thought of this show not going on and this generation not seeing this show, I couldn’t even imagine it.”
“This is just a tremendous property that means so much to the Ozarks. It is so important to the history of our community. It is just such a great story. We are so happy about all of it.”
The play is based on the book, written by Harold Bell Wright in 1907.
