The players of the New Melle Community Passion Play will present the story of the last days of Christ for the 33edyear this April. What began as a legacy of love by Mariam & Gene Steward has now become an annual labor of love by many who have been involved in the production as well as those who return every year to watch the portrayal.
For a non-denominational/community theater production to survive 33 years, completely on donations and volunteers is a testament of the level of commitment made by those who work to bring this production to the people year after year. With the blessings of their talent and time, giving up evenings and weekends to bring the story to life it brings to light the fact that this is a different type of theater – one that touches a special place in the heart of those who take part in it as well as those who view it. If you have seen it before come in support of this group. If you haven’t seen it yet, come see and be totally awed by this great story and cast. It is a must do Easter event.
The New Melle Community Passion Play will be presented in the New Melle Sports & Recreation Center’s main building at 4700 Highway Z in New Melle. Performances are scheduled on two weekends, Saturday April 5 at 7:00 p.m., Sunday April 6 at 2:00 and 4:30 p.m. then again on Saturday April 12 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday April 13at 2:00 and 4:30 p.m. Please join us for one of these performances.
