‘Jonah! on Stage’ arrives in cinemas on May 2

JONAH! on Stage is a one-night theatrical event showing in more than 700 movie theaters on May 2. It is Sight & Sound Theatres’ first time to take their stage play to the big screen.  Now people who can’t travel to Lancaster or Branson for their stage performances will have access to this spectacular and epic Bible story in their own communities. http://www.jonahonstagemovie.com

Filmed in front of a live audience at Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, JONAH: On Stage! brings to life the journey of a lovable, yet stubborn prophet. This spectacular performance offers delightful humor, cinematic music, massive sets, amazing costumes and a breath-taking underwater scene featuring a huge 40-foot whale— made by the same folks who create the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats.

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 in select cinemas only on Tuesday, May 2.

Tickets for “JONAH: On Stage!” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 600 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
