Dean Sell previews Sight & Sound Theatres’ ‘Moses’ coming to cinemas, telling the epic story

The epic musical drama Moses from Sight & Sound Theatres comes to cinemas nationwide September 13 , September 15 and September 20. Fathom Events is partnering with the group and Sight & Sound Theatres’ Brand Director, Dean Sell, spoke with Brandon Jones about the presentation.

During the interview Dean recaps the history of Sight & Sound Theatres, their “two ginormous theaters” in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Branson, Missouri and the expectation for the event, stating that they’ll be in “735 theaters” for three nights, previewing the grand scale of the production.

On selecting the specific material for the show, Dean explained that: “The story of Moses is just massive and there are just so many parts that we could have told, so our version takes us from the Nile River where he is a young baby where he is released by his mother into the river and letting go of her baby boy and through the point where he grows up, he leaves Egypt, he goes into the wilderness, he comes back and rescues the Israelites…”

Dean details the use of animals, their production process and ends with a look ahead at future plans.

About the Production
The original, live stage production of MOSES debuted in 2014 at Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, PA, then appeared in Branson, MO for the 2016-17 season. The filmed version captures all the spectacle and grand scale that are signatures of a Sight & Sound show.

Action takes place on three sides of the audience on a 300-foot panoramic stage . . . and in the aisles! MOSES features 60 sets that required two years to build, some reaching three stories high. Dozens of live animals include horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, goats . . .  (and stay alert for the trained rats). The cast is decked out in more than 880 costumes as they bring Moses’ story to life with a musical score by Hollywood veteran Don Harper, composer for National Treasure and The Lion King 1½, among many others.

Taking MOSES to cinemas marks the second time Sight & Sound has moved one of its productions from the stage to the screen. JONAH played in movie theaters nationwide in 2017.
