The performance begins with the resurrection of Lazarus and continues on through the Triumphal Entry of Christ into Jerusalem on the day known as Palm Sunday.  During the performance you will witness the significant events leading to and including Christ’s crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into Heaven.

You will see the colorful spectacle of the market place, the pageantry of the chariot and camel caravan, and the hustle and bustle of the crowds as they go about their daily activities.  You may especially enjoy seeing the live animals on the streets of Jerusalem, the poignant healing, the angel rolling away the stone at the tomb, and the dramatic and exciting ascension of Jesus into the night sky.

Every effort has been made to be historically accurate and true to Holy Scriptures.  The Play is performed on a 550-foot-wide, multilevel stage in an outdoor amphitheater which has 4,100 individual seats with comfortable backrests.
