The Great Passion Play takes you back 2,000 years to “The Greatest Story Ever Told.” The Play is an hour-and-forty-five minute reenactment of the last week of the life of Jesus Christ. Staged in a 4,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, the multi-level set, special lighting and sound effects, live animals, and a cast of 170 Biblically costumed actors come together to create a thrilling epic drama. From the authentic re-creation of Jerusalem and the colorful spectacle of the market place to the soul-stirring crucifixion, to the electrifying scene of Christ's ascension, The Great Passion Play brings you a professional and moving performance that holds the attention of all ages.
