My name is Geoff Millard and I am Creative Director of the Manchester Passion and I am desperately in need of cast members.


I hope you are aware of the event that is being staged in Cathedral Gardens on April 8th this year. We have all the major parts cast but are short of disciples, servants, guards, roman soldiers et al.


We have started rehearsals every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm at St. Werburghs Parish Hall, adjacent to St. Werburghs Church , 386 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, Manchester, M21 0UH


The event is being staged in Cathedral Gardens on a specially constructed four tier  stage with Manchester’s magnificent Cathedral as a backdrop. The date is Saturday April 8th with the production starting at 2pm.

The live dramatic interpretation of Jesus’ teachings and his Passion during the last week of his life; we hope shows how relevant his sacrifice is for us facing challenges in today’s world. We are proud to have the Manchester Inspirational Voices Choir under the direction of Wayne Ellington and the Sweet Rhythm Big Band as part of the production.  BBC Songs Of Praise are interested in filming parts of the production to be the mainstay of their Easter Sunday broadcast; so all in all, a very important and exciting event of which to be part.
