Well, the 1st day of Previews for Passion Play has arrived…and we are all eager to see this mammoth production take flight with the help of an audience! The next 2 weeks are reserved for Finishing Touches–and this tech-heavy show needs all the finessing we can get. There are all sorts of great deals and wonderful events surrounding the show as part of the Passion Play Coalition (become a fan on Facebook!), which means that lots of different companies have contributed and will continue to support the play during its run with fun activities, speakers, and talkbacks.
For a calendar of events, be sure to visit Epic Theatre Ensemble’s website: http://epictheatreensemble.org/current-show and to buy tickets simply call or use the website! But if you’re coming to a preview, get in touch we me first to take advantage of Epic’s generous discounts–we want EVERYONE to be able to see the show–you dont need lots of moolah, just PASSION!

Come experience this AMAZING production and travel from Elizabethan England, to Oberammergau, Germany where we get a surprise visit from Herr Hitler, and then on to Spearfish, South Dakota and a greeting from Ronald Reagan! Sarah Ruhl has managed to weave together different times and relationships, resulting in some of the most beautiful (but unexpected) imagery and a dramatic realization of the darkest fantasies often hidden in human nature. It’ll make you laugh, It’ll make you cry…but it’ll definitely make you THINK.
Cant wait to see you there!!!
