This year, we will once again be blessed with the inspiring and renowned performance of Christ’s passion as done by the Dzieci Theatre. In addition to their being a part of the service on Palm Sunday, they will also offer this moving experience on Tuesday in Holy Week (March 27th). It will begin with a preliminary discussion led by the actors starting at 7pm about this work, what to expect, with the performance starting at 7:30pm. This is a great event for church groups of all ages. The suggested donation is $15. Everyone is welcome.
Here is an article written about it from last year, and below are reviews:

They have performed this at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (Episcopal), and churches throughout New York. Theatre Group Dzieci has refined their text from the earliest existing translations, relying heavily on the Aramaic Pashita, incorporating Hebraic song and chant, and ritual elements of Judaism, and sets their piece in the shadow of the Warsaw Ghetto. Below are reviews:
“Any corps of actors that can cause a hush to fall upon its audience, such that the angel of silence is not just flying by but is still hovering, must, as they say, be doing something right.” John Osburn, TheatreScene
I’m 88 years old and was one of the first members of the Actors Studio and I’ve been to countless plays, but I can’t remember the last time I saw a performance that moved me as much as your Passion. Lenka Peterson, Bethlehem, CT
It was the most soulful Passion rite I have experienced in a church.…this time, for the first time, I was moved to tears. It was delightfully unassuming and powerful. Guissepe Manca
