Noah

As told by the Eastside Story Guild, Spring 2010

The story of the Great Flood and the family of Noah together with all the jumping, flying, walking, and crawling animals of the earth sharing life in the confines of the ark.

The music for Deep Waters employed elements from a traditional Appalachian   repertoire including an open note hymn sung when the door to the ark was finally opened.

Atia struggling to get Tiger into the ark; Monkey pick-pocketing Noah on his was up the gangplank into the ark.

Tiger is not sure about this whole ark-enterprise and not pleased to be removed from his jungle home;  the waters of the flood rise above the earth.

The long days of tedium on the sea voyage.  At first Tiger refuses to eat or drink anything.

Noah releases a dove to confirm that it is safe to leave the ark;  Penguin slides down the gangplank and onto a renewed earth once the flood waters have subsided.

Noah and Dog marvelling at light and sunshine after the rain finally ceases;  Noah and his family gather around an alter of gratitude as a rainbow appears in the sky above them.
