Members of the community are invited to take part in this year’s New Melle Community Passion Play and help spread the story of Christ. All ages are needed and welcome. You do not need acting experience to help fill several needed parts, including stand-in and crowd people.
(Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.) People for behind the scenes are also needed for props.
Currently there is a need to fill some male speaking parts and for more choir members.
Choir rehearsals are Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. at Friedens UCC, 3560 Mill Street in New Melle. Rehearsals for cast and crew are Monday evenings, also at Friedens UCC. Tech week, with nightly rehearsals at the New Melle Sports and Recreation Hall, will be March 12-16. Performances will be March 17 & 18, and March 24 & 25. (Saturdays at 7 p.m., Sundays at 2 and 4:30 p.m.)
Please come and be part of this long-running community event which offers both community service and Thespian hours, as well as great Christian interaction and involvement for all ages. It is an uplifting, positive experience for all involved. Come, be part of it!
Costumes are provided. If you fear being onstage, come and be part of props and other behind the scenes help.
