Hope performs in Worcester Passion Play this Easter
We are delighted to share the news that Year Nine Drama Scholar, Hope, will be performing in the Worcester Passion Play this Easter. After two years of cancellations, Hope is excited to be able to perform in this play, which will act out poignant moments from the Bible.
Hope explains: “Back in early 2020 I auditioned for the Worcester Passion Play. Unfortunately, the performance was cancelled due to the pandemic in 2020 and then again in 2021. Finally in 2022, we get the chance to perform one of the greatest stories of all.
I have been cast as one of the Disciples, Nathaniel. I have worked with the Director Tim Crow before in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ when I played Scout, so I am really looking forward to the show.
Rehearsals have been brilliant working with a large and diverse cast, involving a humble and tight-knit community of all ages. The show will include many iconic moments from the bible including; Jesus’ arrival on a donkey, the famous last supper scene, Judas’ betrayal, Pontius Pilot arriving on horseback, Roman Soldiers, the trial of Jesus, three men hung on crosses and of course, the Resurrection.”
The play is free to attend and will be performed in Worcester’s Cathedral Square at 10.30am on Good Friday, 15 April. For further information, please visit the organiser website.
