The Passion Play

What's the Passion Play?
The Passion is an experience that no 9th grader wants to miss. Approaching 30 years and running, the Passion Play is an experience that sets HNOJ apart. 9th graders participating in The Passion at HNOJ tell the greatest story the world has ever known. Powerful. Riveting. Unforgettable. Dedicated directors, adults, and high school teen directors guide our 9th-grade teens through an experience that 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 30 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.
