Shrewsbury Passion Play 2020

The Shrewsbury Passion Play will be taking place on Friday 10th April (Good Friday) in the town centre. People from churches all over Shrewsbury are involved, and with a few weeks to go we’re looking for a few more people to step forward.

Steve Jones, part of the morning congregations at HT, is one of the people heading up the play. He writes he is looking for:

  • a Roman Centurion – male – any age over 25yrs – One line at end of play. Supervises the arrest of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane escorts Jesus to Caiaphas house then down Pride Hill to Pilates and then the crucifixion of Jesus in The Square.
  • Two Roman Soldiers -male -any age over 18yrs – non speaking. Undertake the arrest of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane escorts Jesus to Caiaphas house then to Pilates and then the crucifixion of Jesus in The Square.
  • Two disciples any age – non speaking – they are with Jesus in Garden of Gethsemane and they then witnesses Peter’s betrayal. They follow Jesus to The Square walking with Mary .
  • Two Priests – any age – odd throw away lines – religious leaders and scribes with Caiaphas.
  • Mary Jesus’s mother – female needs to be about the right age – non speaking. In last scene in The Square.

All the main rehearsals are taking place between 2.00pm and 4.30pm on a Tuesday and Friday afternoons during March. All the principle actors are available during the day time. We will be doing some rehearsals in the evenings to suit those actors that are working and will be at times suitable to them. We have a full dress rehearsal on Palm Sunday starting at 4.00pm. On the morning of Good Friday we all meet at the Street Pastors office 1a Castlegates at 9.00am for prayers.
