New Melle Community Passion Play

A must See Easter Event




The players of the New Melle Community Passion Play will present the story of the last days in the life of Christ for the two weekends before Easter.  Shows are Saturday March 12 at 7:00 PM and Sunday March 13 at 2:00 and 4:30 and again on Saturday March 19 at 7:00 PM and Sunday March 20 at 2:00 & 4:30.


What began as a legacy of love by Mariam & Gene Steward has now, over a quarter of a century later, become an annual labor of love by many who are involved in the production as well as those who return every year to watch the portrayal.  The volunteer actors, singers and people behind the scenes bring new twist and talants each year adding new life to the production.


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.  Please join us for one of these performances.  It is a great family Easter Event.  Admission is a free will donation only.  For additional information and large group reservations call Donna Curdt at 636-791-3497.
