Yesterday was Chris' 10th birthday, and the theme was Jesus Christ. As a birthday present, we took Chris to the musical drama 'Atlanta Passion Play'. The show started at sharp 7:30 PM and it was a spectacular one.
The NT part of bible comes alive on stage. The images of the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ are displayed powerfully on stage in an unforgettable way. The show included Baptism, wedding of Cana, walking on water, Palm Sunday, Last supper, Denial of Peter, trial before Pilate, way of the cross, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, etc. The images from the show still remain alive in our minds. There were over 200 cast members ranging from ages 4 to 80. They even used a live donkey to display Palm Sunday. We were able to get a new perspective on Jesus Christ.
This play has been going on for 33 years and after seeing it, we again made plans to go next year. It was held at the Atlanta civic center which can seat over 3,000 people. We booked out tickets well in advance, and got row F (6th row from the front), and were able to catch a closer look at the show. The tickets were $25 per person and we paid $ 5 for parking.
Strongly urge you to go for the show next year. It's truly worth it.
