You’ll see Jesus ride in town on a donkey, a carpenter whittling the cross from a tree, Roman soldiers doing marching drills and practicing sword fighting in the streets, Jesus telling stories to children on a rock formation, a cave signifying the empty tomb, a petting zoo for children, water baptisms, and a concert amphitheater with live singers. New scenes will include a chariot, brick making, water well, threshing floor, straw cart, olive oil press, and the judgment throne of God.
Viewers can drive by to see the outdoor tableaus or park at Cathedral High School and walk through the gates of Jerusalem. Nighttime will offer a spectacular display of lights.
For the convenience of the handicapped and elderly, golf carts will be provided.
The “LAST DAYS OF CHRIST” outdoor drama began in 1997 with eight actors and in 2003, twenty churches will team together to present the production with 400 actors and workers with an anticipated attendance of 10,000!
