The Friends of Pike County Public Library are getting set to go see Noah. After nearly a decade in hiatus, Sight & Sound Theatre's original biblical epic is back by popular demand - showing for one season only at their theater in Lancaster County, PA. The show boasts “more than fifty professional actors and dozens of live animals.” In this epic audience members will “travel with Noah, overwhelmed in his quest to fulfill the wishes of God as he struggles against seemingly impossible odds and the intense criticism of non-believers.” Every detail of the story is brought to life with remarkable realism. There is a 40-foot-high ark that is constructed on stage during the performances. Audiences find themselves “surrounded by hundreds of live and animatronic animals of every species.” Sight & Sound Theatre is known for its “immersive” stagings of some of the Bible's greatest stories.
The bus will leave the Sunshine Station at 7:30am. The trip to Lancaster, PA reports to offer views some wonderful views of fall foliage in the state.
