Jonah, the prophet of Israel sends and receives telegraphs to and from the Living God on behalf of the people, and all is fine, until the Lord tells him to go to that "dirty, rotten, flea-bitten foreign city called Ninevah!" So, wouldn't ya' know it, instead of boardin' the east-bound train to Ninevah, Jonah hops a west-bound stage to Tarshish! Jonah confesses that he is running the opposite direction from what Jehovah instructed him, and he is thrown off the stage and lands in a . . . well (say it with yer best cowboy twang!). No, not a whale . . . an old, abandoned well, where he languishes for 3 days and 3 nights. And . . . you know what happens from there! 45 minutes

I directed the students of our small (under 30 students) Christian school in this wonderful spin on the story of Jonah. Not only were the students-ages preschool through middle school-but also the adults excited for Jonah's Druthers! Such a great story that the had the kids saying, 'Oh, I get it!' and 'This is the best one we have ever done.' We used this as a dinner theater fundraiser and had a record turn out (25 years as a school with a normally larger student body)!
