Hermanus Passion Play on Good Friday 25 March 2016

On the very first Good Friday, more than 2000 years ago, three crosses were erected on a hill in Calvary.  Jesus Christ was crucified in the middle, with two criminals, probably murderers, at his sides.  The obvious arrangement of these three crosses carries an important message.

The message will be recalled again on 18 April at 20:00 at the Old Harbour, in the annual Hermanus Passion Play - which also presents the life and last days of Christ.  The Old Harbour is the perfect venue for this Easter Play, which fascinates audiences every year for 90 minutes.  This is the 19th occasion on which the Hermanus Passion Play will be performed, by a group of 90 to 100 participants.  The play will be preceded by the Novis Vita praise dancers at 19:00, followed by Innes Benade.  Then all the lights of the Old Harbour will be turned off and a spotlight will showcase the performance.
