This afternoon features the story of "Jonah" told with clowning and physical theater. Please note that for all of these performances, parental supervision is advised (PG-13.) Some violence, language, biblical references and an irreverent sensibility applies.
Jonah - lazy, fitful, argumentative Jonah - is charged with a mission he doesn’t want, and escapes as a stowaway on a boat bound for nowhere. Before he knows it, he is deep in the belly of a sea monster and in big trouble!
