Jonah: From Stage to the Screen

   Kudos to Brittany Adkins Beitzel, who grew up on stage in local theatre productions, including First Stage, ARTS and HOT. 

   For the past six years, she's been appearing in the Sight & Sound Theatre's productions in Lancaster, Pennsylvania!

   She also hit the big screen, as a film version of Jonah: On Stage aired this week at local theatres!

   You can read more about it in the Herald-Dispatch story by Dave Lavender at this link.

   Here's an excerpt:


   For the past six seasons, 2005 Cabell Midland High School graduate Brittany Adkins Beitzel has been a regular in the cast at the Sight & Sound Theatre's professional productions.
   But to see Beitzel you have to drive to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the popular Pennsylvanian Dutch country to see her perform at the 2,000-seat Sight & Sound Theatre.
   Beitzel, who is 30, is in the ensemble cast of Jonah: On Stage!, the Biblical theatrical production that was filmed in 2012, her first year performing with the company.
   Filmed in front of a live audience, Jonah: On Stage! brings to life the journey of a lovable, yet stubborn prophet. This performance offers cinematic music and massive sets, including an underwater scene featuring a huge 40-foot whale - made by the same folks who create the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade floats.
