The dramatic musical portraying the death and resurrection of Jesus, will be presented at the Bayou Vista Civic Center on Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 31, at 7 p.m. and a 3 p.m. matinee on Palm Sunday, April 1. It is free but an offering will be accepted.
“Presenting it in a separate place besides the church gives us an opportunity to reach the community – beyond these walls – and that’s the whole point,” said Robert “Bobby” Powell, the church’s music and education minister. “Another point is that it involves a lot of people in our church and gives them an opportunity for ministry, like building props, sewing costumes and painting the sets.”
