Inventive story-telling coupled with stirring music & some beautiful harmonies, though what really makes this show work is the talented multi-instrumentalist performers, who not only dazzle with their musicianship, but delight with superb physical comedy. The entertainment begins with an outdoor performance from the windows overlooking the Mile, and continues all the way through the next hour, as we follow the stories of the clearly-drawn fisherfolk through their trials & tribulations. Yes, there's a message behind the musical, but the show also works as pure entertainment, and I encourage people of all varieties of faith (or not) to come catch these musonauts while they can!

This show for all ages is a must see. It has a powerful and deeply moving message, a well written story line and the singing and acting are superb. We both laughed and cried and loved the insight the play gave into what it must have been like for the disciples to give up their lives as fishermen and follow Jesus.
It is the only show that we have seen so far that we want to watch a second time!
