The Great Passion Play has been telling the inspiring story of Christ’s life and death in a monumental way since the 1960’s. With more than 150 actors and live animals on a small village-sized set, visitors become active observers of Jesus Christ’s life, betrayal, death, and glorious resurrection. Whether it is the impressive set or the subject matter, the Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs is “America’s #1 Attended Outdoor Drama” with nearly 8 million visitors.
The Passion Play opens in May!
The Great Passion Play performances begin again in the first weekend in May and run through the last weekend of October. The Christ of the Ozarks, Bible Museum, and gift shops are open year-round.
New Attractions for 2017!
New in 2017 is the Noah’s Ark Park. At the beginning of the Holy Land Tour area, this will be a great way for children and families to interact with animals.
Also at the beginning of the Holy Land Tour, this new feature provides guests with the opportunity to interact with period Biblical craftspeople.
238 youth mission trippers volunteered for the Great Passion Play in June and July of 2016. The total was over 500 people. This year, the Great Passion Play is welcoming mission trip groups to stay and help!
