Being an outdoor theater altho it did get cold and we had to buy blankets at the tourist shop to stay warm. Very usual for that time of year.

Very well done. I was not expecting such a large set, cast and production. The script stayed true to the scriptures. I look forward to returning with family members.

This is a must-see. I was around 11 the first time I saw this play and since then 3 more times. It is excellent every time. An intense story and tends to end late...may not be best for young children (2-5).

Was a little disappointed in the play. The people were wonderful, the prices were reasonable (tickets for play, gift shop, concessions), but the play seemed to have been completely pre-recorded with the actors acting out and mouthing the words, I realize they have a lot of lines to learn, but it took away from the experience. But, I did love... More

This was my second time to see the play. The first one was 29 years ago. I can't explain the feeling you have when you watch the Word of God brought to life. The actors did a superb job, and the live animals were a treat to see. We also enjoyed the Sacred Arts museum. The paintings and sculptures were... More

We had a wonderful at the Passion play grounds from morning till night. The Holy Land Tour, especially the Tabernacle teaching was excellent. We felt the staff was truly a reflection of Christ and their desire to communicate His love for all who came. If you go in the heat of summer, being a hat and sunscreen. They have bottles... More

We started off our day touring the Holy Land which is wonderful. Talking with Jesus at the Sea of Galilee will forever be talked about at our house - anyone who asks how we enjoyed our vacation my 7 year old son tells them the number one thing was "We saw Jesus and He prayed for us!" Keeping in mind... More

Great "play". Definitely worth visiting. I don't know how I went so long without seeing it. The acting was a little corny but that's not what's important. The story of Jesus, his death and resurrection was the amazing

This was my third time at the play. It is a wonderful experience for the entire family. This visit we did it all. We did the Holy Land Tour, the behind the scenes tour, buffet dinner, David, and the Parables of the Potter, and of course the play. Everyone was on their game withe their performances. I think the coolest... More

The actors on the Holy Land tour are wonderful. Loved the David the Shepherd and Parable of the Potter plays. The Great Hall buffet was ok but not terrific. The play itself was neat with live animals and great sets and effects but the dialogue needs some updating in my opinion. A new script with some of the actors from... More
