The Great Passion Play is concluding its 50th year anniversary on Oct. 26 and 27 with heroes appreciation nights honoring military (active and vets), police, firefighters, EMT, and first responders.

“Our 50th year has been very exciting,” shared Randall Christy, Executive Director of The Great Passion Play. “We are excited to close out the 50th year with a heroes weekend, a service and military appreciation on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27.

“The Play runs May through October, but we have Holy Land Tours year-round and this year for Christmas, visitors can drive through a forest of 300 plus Christmas trees on their way to see the Christ of the Ozarks.”

Free play tickets will be available for the service person with half-priced tickets for family.

“Our service and military appreciation night has had over 2,200 people in attendance in the past,” Kent Butler, actor and director of operations for the play, “and we hope to welcome even more this year.”
