SYNOPSIS (Excerpted from Lovell-Fairchild)
JONAH: On Stage! From the pages of the Bible to the theatrical stage and now, in select movie theaters for an incredible encore showing …
Get ready for a jaw-dropping adventure for the whole family as one of the Bible’s biggest stories comes to life in Sight & Sound’s JONAH: On Stage! This special event will be in select cinemas for an encore presentation on Saturday, June 3, only.
Filmed in front of a live audience at Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, JONAH: On Stage! brings to life the journey of this lovable, yet stubborn prophet. This spectacular performance offers delightful humor, cinematic music, massive sets, amazing costumes and a breathtaking underwater scene featuring a huge 40-foot whale—with one big appetite!
When God calls Jonah to offer mercy and forgiveness to the people of Nineveh, he runs straight … in the opposite direction! As is often the case, one bad choice leads to another and soon Jonah’s “get-away” ship is on the verge of destruction amidst a terrible storm. To save themselves, the ship’s crew tosses Jonah overboard … and into the waiting mouth of one ginormous fish.
But as Jonah discovers, God is always willing to offer anyone another chance—Ninevites and run-away prophets alike! Experience the hit musical that more than 1 million people have enjoyed at Sight & Sound as JONAH: On Stage! plays an encore presentation in select cinemas only on Saturday, June 3.
