Sight & Sound Theatres: Ruth


For the first time in its 30-year history, a Sight & Sound stage production is available on DVD. Sight & Sound Theatres is proud to present the beloved and captivating musical, “Ruth,” which is filmed in high definition before a live audience. This treasured biblical story, set to an original musical score, follows the improbable journey of Ruth and Naomi, two destitute widows whose faith in God and in each other ignites a chain of events that changes the course of history.

Dove Review

“Sight & Sound Theatres: Ruth” tells the biblical story of Ruth as a musical production. It features realistic stage settings, costumes and small hut-like homes of the period and time. It also takes a bit of creative license with imagined conversations but holds true to the biblical facts. Naomi’s husband and sons die, but she sings a beautiful song about dreams being all she has left. Of course, Ruth follows Naomi and tells her that Naomi’s people will be Ruth’s people and that her mother-in-law’s God will be her God. Ruth sings an inspiring song about God seeing them through their trials.

This story teaches the lesson that sometimes, when all our plans fail, we find God’s plan for us. “Ruth” is a love story about God’s love for his people but also the love Boaz has for Ruth and the way he cares for both Ruth and Naomi. At the end, Ruth and Boaz sing of their joy. We are pleased to award this wonderful musical our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
