Passion Play

The Passion Play is Shepherd’s dramatic stage and musical production that examines the timeless events surrounding the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 2018 will mark the Passion Play’s 26th year in production. With vivid heart-warming dramatizations in word and song along with a live orchestra, The Passion Play will bring to life the greatest story ever told in the new Worship Center at Porter Ranch. This annual event has become a local tradition for thousands of Angelinos as they prepare to celebrate Easter.
