Branson’s Shepherd of the Hills show closes after 54 seasons

The owners of the business, one of Branson’s key early attractions, cited rising insurance and production costs, declining crowds, and costs associated with the new federal health care law. Started in 1960, the Shepherd of the Hills play was one of the early attractions on which Branson was built. At its peak during the 1970s and 1980s, it drew more than 2,000 guests each night.
