Welcome to Paraphrase Theatre!

Welcome to Paraphrase Theatre!
So glad you stopped by.  My name is Jonathan Swenson… and I am the guy behind Paraphrase Theatre.  I’m a trained actor and an ordained pastor… and it is my great joy to be traveling around the country to church events, youth gatherings, conferences, retreats and other special events…. sharing stories about God’s radical love. My hope is to place those stories in the context of real life in ways that are relevant and meaningful.  Thomas

TOURING PRODUCTIONS – If you are visiting this website to consider bringing me to your church, conference, retreat or other event, WELCOME!  Please look around the site and see what Paraphrase has to offer. I’m currently touring the country with two dramas:  Witnesses and Celebrate the Child - both written by Curt Cloninger and performed with his permission. I’m also available as a guest speaker, teacher, or presenter.
