Angola, LA. – Don’t miss your chance to witness the open-air production of The Life of Jesus Christ play as performed by a cast of male and female offenders from the Louisiana State Penitentiary and Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women. This unique, truly unforgettable performance depicts Jesus’ birth, miracles, crucifixion and resurrection. All aspects of the event have been orchestrated by offenders – from script adaptation, direction, casting, music, costuming, and set design!!! There will even be live animals, including our very own Jimmie, the camel!!!
For over 2000 years, this story has been told to generations, and for decades The Life of Jesus Christ productions have been performed in front of large audiences throughout the world. This Peter Huntley version of the play has been performed in Scotland and Africa and now because of the successful performances here, is set to happen in two Scottish prisons and a slum in Brazil.
