This year’s event will feature old-time mountain music by The Lingner Family, and the cast from Red, Hot… and Blue!, will perform American classics from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Before the sky lights up with fireworks, the drama team from Aim Around the World will provide a special patriotic tribute.

Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Play - July 4th Fireworks After Show

At The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Theatre, Harold Bell Wright's epic story of love, loss, power, hardship, and the true meaning of life is immortalized every night on our star-lit stage. It takes over 80 actors and actresses, 40 horses, a flock of sheep, several guns and rifles, an actual burning log cabin, and a vintage 1908 DeWitt automobile to make the live action performance what it is today.

Since our first season in 1959-60, the outdoor drama has entertained millions of Branson visitors. People who came to see the show as children come back to bring their own families. The cast members exhibit the loyalty and affection they have for the story itself. Several of them have been in the drama since its inception. The Shepherd of the Hills is not just another Ozarks show - it is the story of the Ozarks.
