Tuesday, October 5, 2021

The Great Passion Play will be offering Area Appreciation Days for residents of Carroll County for October performances.

Residents of Carroll County can get Play tickets for just $10 for performances of The Great Passion Play and kids under 4 are always free. Area appreciation performances happen every May, August, and October.

Featuring a cast of more than 125 actors, the Play has been performed since 1968 amid a 550-foot historically accurate stage and brings to life the epic drama surrounding Christ’s last days on earth, including his death, resurrection and ascension.

The Great Passion Play runs one hour and 45 minutes, featuring an original musical score composed by Phil Perkins and performed by the world-renowned National Philharmonic Orchestra of London.

This year’s performance also features horses, donkeys, dogs and dozens of birds as well as a camel donated by the “Wild Wilderness Drive through Safari” in Gentry.

Reservations can be made over the phone at 800-882-7529, or in person at the box office. Area appreciation performances happen for all May, August, and October performances. Present a valid photo ID or proof of residence when you pick up your tickets for performances.

The Play runs on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 30.
