A new chapter us about to begin

The famed outdoor theatre production of The Shepherd of the Hills will return for the 2014 season. The announcement was made in mid-October that 2013 would be the productions final season, but organizers have announced that the show will return for a more limited schedule for their 55th season in Branson.

“Last fall was a very difficult time,” said Sharena Naugher, Marketing Director and co-owner of the homestead. “My Dad had been fighting pancreatic and liver cancer all summer, our attendance numbers had declined, and we felt very beat up and like the odds were stacked against us. Closing the show that had been so much a part of my family was heartbreaking, but seemed like our only option at the time. However, the overwhelming outpouring of love and support from the entire community and our fans was such an incredible blessing. We were completely blown away!”

The final performance of the show was October 19th, Gary Snadon passed away on October 31st. “It was an extremely difficult time,” Naugher goes on to say. “We’ve taken the winter to step back and recover, to analyze our options, and to pray.…a lot! It became very apparent to my husband and I, to my Mom and my children, and to my sister and her family, that we very much want to continue this amazing legacy.”

The show will open May 23rd, Memorial Day weekend. The schedule has been pared back from 6 nights a week to 4 during the summer months and weekends only during the fall, but the spectacular production will remain the same. “We are humbled and grateful to our friends and cast members who have stood beside us. It’s been said a million times but its still true - our cast members, some who have been with the show for over 40 years, are just like family. It’s definitely been our family that has carried us through this dark time. Now we are ready to begin a new chapter fight and fight hard for our next 55 seasons.”

Tickets will go on sale Monday, April 7th and can be purchased online at or by calling 1-800-653-6288.

Open Year Round 9AM to 5PM

Inspiration Tower is Branson's "landmark on the horizon" -- a massive 230' tall structure located Inspiration Toweron Inspiration Point in The Shepherd of the Hills Homestead. Constructed and erected in 1989, the Tower's opening celebrated the 100th anniversary of Harold Bell Wright's first visit to the area. It weighs 3 million pounds, cost approximately $1.5 million to build, contains over 92,000 pounds of structural steel, and can withstand a constant wind of 172 mph or gusts of up to 224 mph! A convoy of 43 concrete trucks filled the Tower foundation, which contains five miles' worth of rebar weighing 34.5 tons. The Tower also contains over 4,400 square feet of glass - enough to cover a third of a football field!

Two glass elevators transport visitors to the spacious, enclosed observation deck. The panoramic views are absolutely phenomenal, in any season. On a clear day, you can see over 90 miles. There's also a specialty gift shop, snack bar and restrooms on the ground level.

During November and December, Inspiration Tower is transformed into the Ozarks' largest Christmas tree for the Trail of Lights! The Tower is open year-round.

"One of our favorite activities in Branson was visitng Inspiration Tower.  I almost skipped it because I don't like heights, but I'm so glad the rest of my group talked me into it.  The view was spectacular, and the height didn't bother me at all...  Next time I want to be sure to enjoy the sunset from the top!"
