Hamilton Passion Play 2018
Renewal Through Resurrection

Our project is to produce a Passion Play on Easter Saturday, as part of Holy Week celebrations. This will be staged in our high street and will involve a community cast as well as a professional actor playing Jesus. Our local company and audience members will have opportunity to experience the real Easter story first hand. The project will:-
  1. Build on the success of 2017’s “Walk with Christ” (where scenes from a Pasion Play were serialised throughout Holy Week, predominantly in or around the church) through staging a Passion Play on a larger scale, including performing a full play as opposed to a series of scenes. All will be performed in the High Street.
  2. Bring together church and community to assemble a large cast and crew to deliver the project. This will include the opportunity for developing leadership roles
  3. Deliver a comprehensive package of marketing, with the Passion Play as the focus, incorporating all aspects of Holy Week celebrations; working to ensure that the gospel message is not lost amongst publicity for egg hunts
  4. Take Easter celebrations into the community, offering those outwith the church community a faith experience
  5. Offer the existing Christian community an opportunity to further explore the Easter story through creative arts
