They have been doing this play for many years now. It has been called a few different things too during that time period.

Performed each year just before Easter. I did think they did a good job with it. There were a couple of things. You have missed 2019! You will have to wait until next year!

This play is very interactive. That means they use the isles and walkways through the viewing area. So it is advised that you not get up during the performance. That is for your safety and their safety.

I did find lines hard to hear at times. That is when they were singing and had lines going on at the same time. The music parts were louder than the vocals. But, when there was no music playing, you could hear the lines better.

This was mostly a musical, not many lines. So you will have to like musicals.

It seemed the air was on high there, it was rather cold for me. If I am saying it is cold in there, then it is really, really cold, as I am hot natured.

I do believe you should go and check it out at least once thought!

The other thing is, to go to the Bathrooms, you had to exit the outside of the church. So if it was raining or cold, it might not be a pleasant experience.

Despite those, I did enjoy it. I am not too big on musicals.
