The Melbourne Passion Play has grown from humble beginnings at Rosebud in 1997 to something of a cultural as well as religious institution in Melbourne. It is now seen each year by many thousands of Victorians from all walks of life. Not only is it an event eagerly anticipated by spectators, but it is also a forum for actors and would-be actors in which to become engaged thus honing their talents before a very discerning audience.

Because of its outdoor setting, the stage is nature itself. Interaction between cast and audience creates constant interest and excitement; this is especially so when the ever-present Roman legionaries demand law and order be maintained under strict orders from their Centurion.The Annual Melbourne Passion Play is an event that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. It is an event that will remain memorable.

Be part of this very special event which will be held at the Holy Cross Centre, 207 Serpells Road, Templestowe.
