Bishop Auckland Passion Play Needs Your Support (Picture: Keith Blundy)

Posted on behalf of the Bishop Auckland Passion Play Organising Team

We are looking for people who would like to be part of the Cast – we have many cast roles including Jesus, the disciples, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of Jesus, High Priests, Roman Centurions and Officials plus many more.

We are also looking for people who would like be behind the scenes in costume and make up teams, backstage, technical support, stage construction, props, stewards and support teams.

There will be a number of free to attend Open Calls in Bishop Auckland for all who are interested in joining us. All cast and crew must attend at least one open call event.

These will last a maximum of 90 minutes but include time to find out more, ask questions and of course, start the process of you being involved in a team and become a part of this momentous story.
