The New Melle Community Passion Play will begin rehearsals for the Easter presentation of the last days in the life of Christ starting February 6th at Friedens Peace United Church of Christ (3560 Mill Street) 7:30 pm. This nondenominational event has been part of the community for over 30 years.
No acting experience is necessary as there are many nonspeaking parts as crowd and Disciples.  All you need is a want to be part of this great event.  Costumes are provided.  Both actors and choir will meet on the 6th then the actors will continue on Monday evenings at 7:30 until March 19 when we will move to the New Melle Sports Center for nightly rehearsals before the first performance on March 24.  If you are interested in being part of the choir after the first meeting on the 6th choir will meet on Sundays at 2:00 pm starting February 13th also at Friedens.  Then will join the actors for the nightly practice on March 19th at the Sports Center.
Shows will be presented in the New Melle Sports Center’s main building starting March 24 at 7:00 pm, Sunday March 25th at 2:00 & 4:30.  Then again the following weekend March 31 at 7:00 and Sunday April 1 at 2:00 & 4:30.  Check us out on Face Book at “New Melle Passion Play”.
