The Great Passion Play
Bear witness to the greatest Biblical story of all time; with over 150 actors, and live birds and animals, this Eureka Springs play is sure to impress and dazzle the entire family.
The Great Passion Play is held within a three-stories-high amphitheater the size of two football fields, setting the story of Jesus' life to a huge stage. Watch in awe and reverence as Jesus gains a following before being betrayed by Judas. Grieve as Jesus gives up his life for your sins as he is crucified on the cross, and rejoice when he arises from the tomb in his holy resurrection.
You can witness the story of Jesus Christ as he experiences life, performs many miracles, and spreads the word of God. A great experience for the entire family, this play is one you must see.
