Now in its 10th season, Manitoba’s Passion Play has over 120 volunteer cast and crew from across the province. Since its inception, the play, the stage, the volunteers and the site have grown and adapted into a truly unique presentation for southern Manitoba. Though receiving much support from the immediate surrounding communities, a wonderful aspect of Manitoba’s Passion Play is that it continues to draw its actors and crew not only locally, but from around the province.
The Passion Play is known to many as the story of Christ and His last days of ministry on earth, from the triumphal entry into Jerusalem to His betrayal, arrest, denial, crucifixion and resurrection. It is complete with unique music, live animals, a beautiful expansive stage space and over 60 actors. Staged in the picturesque Pembina Valley near La Riviere, Manitoba, the production is an exciting and meaningful event.
Performance dates are set for July 9 to 12 at 7:30 p. m. Tickets are available at a number of locations around the province. Further information can be obtained from: www.passionplay.ca;e-mail:[email protected];or by contacting the box office information line: 204-242-3160.
