“The Aberdeen Passion – One Life Given” is a traditional telling of the final week of Jesus Christ’s life performed by members of the Aberdeen community over Easter Weekend, 2012. The production is a faithful retelling of arguably the greatest story ever told.
It’s first century Jerusalem and momentous events are taking place! The city is a powder keg and the Roman occupation force will crush any sign of unrest. There’s always trouble – but this year is different. Word is spreading about a man from Nazareth who is attracting crowds and provoking the religious authorities. This unknown man from a Galilean backwater challenges everything when he arrives in Jerusalem. The High Priest doesn’t take this challenge lightly and a conspiracy soon begins to take shape, growing in intensity and not resting until the challenge is ended one way or another.
This is the start of a week that will shake the world, the last week of the life of Jesus as he puts himself on a collision course with death itself…..
The Aberdeen Passion involves over one hundred performers through a blend of onstage action, a live band and choir performing modern songs with lyrics specially written for the production.
The production is being operated on a strictly non-profit basis with all involved giving their time and talents free of charge, with the exception of some professional support we need to hire in. Any profit will be distributed between local charities supported by the production.
