Volunteers needed to help with Bolton passion play
FROM stage stars to tea makers, a raft of volunteers is needed to bring a musical extravaganza to the stage.
The show — Spirit the Passion of Pentecost — is being held to raise money for the next Passion for Bolton, planned to take place at Easter in 2015.
“Spirit” will see the first chapters of the apostle, which tell of the coming of the Holy Spirit, performed in show-stopping style on June 7 and 8 at the Victoria Hall.
The event is being organised by Bolton Community Christian Cohesion and there will be a presentation evening tomorrow for people to find out more about the upcoming production.
Caroline Wyke, project manager, said: “The Spirit is a musical that’s going to be performed in June.
“We’re looking for actors, soloists, choir members, stewards, make-up people, dressers, tea-makers, technicians and backstage help.
“For anyone who would like to be involved, this is an opportunity to come and find out more.
“We also wanted to put this event on to build up momentum and support, both in terms of volunteers and finance for the event.”
Spirit is being produced to help fund the Passion for Bolton 2015, following on from 2011’s successful event.
The Passion tells the story of the final hours of Jesus’ life — his visit to Jerusalem then leading to his execution by crucifixion.
Hundreds of people gathered in Victoria Square to watch the powerful and emotional re-enactment of the Easter Story in 2011, which saw the crucifixion of Jesus Christ re-enacted on the Town Hall steps.
It was the first time Bolton had staged The Passion, which involved more than 150 performers, two donkeys, and cost a total of £30,000 to perform.
Tomorrow’s informal get-together will begin at 7.30pm in the Walker Suite, Victoria Hall, where people will be able to find out more, including songs to be featured in the musical.
