One-night event in nearly 600 movie theaters on May 2
From Fathom Events and Sight & Sound Theatres®
For more than four decades, experiencing one of Sight & Sound’s biblical stage epics meant a drive to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, or Branson, Missouri. But on May 2 one of Sight & Sound’s musical dramas splashes into movie theaters nationwide for a special one-night presentation called Jonah: On Stage!
In addition to this incredible production, audiences will get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the history of Sight & Sound Theatres, whose live stage shows have been seen by more than 22 million visitors worldwide.
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. The 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 “getaway” ship is on the verge of destruction amid 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 runaway prophets alike!
The BA hopes this announcement will encourage readers to select entertainment of high ethical, moral, and religious value.
