What began as a legacy of love by Mariam & Gene Steward has now, over 30 years 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 twists and talents each year adding new life to the production.
PLEASE NOTE: There are two male speaking parts still available! Join now to help complete this year’s cast! (One younger man needed to play a thief, plus someone to play Judas.) Recruit a couple friends and family members to join with you...there is always room for more!)
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 or large group reservations call Donna Curdt at 636-634-1150.
