RONKS, Pennsylvania — The Old Testament epic story of “Moses” has come to life at Sight & Sound Theatres.
The massive show, which debuted in early March, features the parting of the Red Sea, the burning bush, the plagues and the Ten Commandments.
An automated navigation system – similar to GPS – is used to maneuver seven of the set pieces onstage, including the two set pieces that create Mount Sinai. Creative use of a 110-by-32-foot rear projection screen on the 300-foot-wide stage and wraparound projection adds to the experience.
There is a cast of 54 professional actors, live animals and original music from veteran composer of film and television Don Harper.
Sight & Sound’s costume department designed and created 882 costumes for the production using seven miles of fabric and 16,000 snaps. They also styled 400 wigs for the actors.
The show features more than 50 live animals, including horses, macaws, dogs, donkeys, rats, camels, alpacas, llamas, goats, cows and sheep.
The show runs through February 7, 2015.
