Boasting hundreds of professional actors and actresses dressed in elaborate costumes, live animals, superb sets, some towering up to 40 feet high, and special effects unparallel to any other, the Sight and Sound Theatre’s production of Jonah is an immersive experience about God’s grace and mercy.

The Story of Jonah

Jonah is based on the Bible’s account of the prophet Jonah, a man on the run from God. Journey back in time and go on a series of wild adventures with Jonah at a seaport called Joppa, on a huge boat during a bad storm and in the belly of a giant whale. Along the way, God teaches Jonah valuable lessons about how to receive grace and extend mercy, even to his greatest archenemy: Nineveh.
