What's the Passion Play?
The Passion is an experience that no 9th grader wants to miss. Approaching 25 years and running, the Passion Play is an experience that sets HNOJ apart. 9th graders participating in the The Passion at HNOJ tell the greatest story the world has ever known. Powerful. Riviting. Unforgetable. Dedicated directors, adults, and high school teen directors, guide our 9th grade teens through an experience which takes them back 2,000 years in history through the life and passion of our Lord.

What if I've never been in a Play Before?
Totally ok. In the last 25 years the majority of students participating in the play have had no acting experience. If you'd only like one line, that's ok. if you'd prefer not to have any lines, that's also ok. The is a role for any and every teen, regardless of how much acting experience you have.

Who: The 9th Gr. Teens, 2 Dedicated Directors, Energetic Teen Directors, and Phenomenal Group of Adult Volunteers
The Passion Play is an experienced designed for our 9th grade teens. The 9th graders are lead by a dedicated, passionate, and talented group of volunteers who help to make this the life changing experience that it is.

When: January - March.
Auditions for The 2015 Passion Play will be announced in the near future. Most rehearsals will take place on Monday Nights from 7:00-8:30pm. Rehearsal will begin in January and will conclude with the telling of The Passion on Friday, March 13th. The number of rehearsals is dependent upon the type of role each teen has. Jesus, for examples will have substantially more practice sessions that a Jewish Guard who might not have any lines.

Where: Holy Name of Jesus
All auditions, rehearsals, and the performance take place at Holy Name of Jesus in the Church.

Cost: $50
This cost covers all costumes, lighting, and props that are needed to make The Passion Play the great story that it is.
