MILTON, Ga. – The congregation of the Crabapple First Baptist Church have a passion for their faith.

They are putting that faith on stage with their large semi-annual Passion Play beginning April 17.

Passion Plays typically recount the last days of Jesus Christ.

For Crabapple, their play will feature 100 actors for the 95-minute performance.

“It’s the biggest thing we do,” said Ken Hayes, the church's music director and head of the production.

"Scenes from the life and ministry of Jesus will be brought to life through the medium of music and drama,” he said. “The audience will witness the agony of the crucifixion as well as the hope and triumph of the resurrection."

The play itself is original and originated with a friend of Hayes’ in Tennessee.

It started when Hayes went to see Pastor Chris Rouse of Faith Church, in Gallatin, Tenn.’s presentation a few years back.

“I got inspired by what I saw and heard his church do,” Hayes said.

Rouse gave permission to use his script at Crabapple Baptist and they ran with it.

“We’ve adapted it to the talents we have,” Hayes said. “It’s kind of ours now.”

This year’s performance will be the third showing of the musical and will feature some new scenes and twists on the familiar story. Each new performance, Hayes said he likes to change things up to keep the material fresh, but true to the Bible.

The showing is free and open to the public.

“We like to see it as an outreach into the community,” said Hayes. “We want to invite as many people to see it as want to.”

The Passion runs April 17-19 at 7 p.m. each night. Admission is free. Childcare is provided.

The church is located at 12760 Birmingham Highway in Milton. For more information, visit http://www.crabapplefbc.org.
