About Jonah - A Fishy Tail

This modern Jonah And The Whale musical adaptation has a balmy, summertime feel to it. It contains an exhilarating mix of sea-themed songs featuring sun, waves and a bunch of scurvy pirates.

With a fun and lively script that is perfect for young performers, Jonah - A Fishy Tail introduces a whole host of new characters, including a beautiful senorita, an irritating crab and Peg It and Leg It, the nasty Ninevites.

This Jonah And The Whale musical manages to successfully retain the story’s true meaning while making it more accessible to primary school children.

A Performance Licence is required to perform Jonah - A Fishy Tail. You are able to purchase an Instant Performance Licence when you purchase this product, or a Standard Performance Licence at any time. For more information, please see below.
