Help out as a re-enactor...
Pilot, Jesus, Veronica, Mary, the Roman soldiers, the women of Jerusalem. We need help fulfilling these roles. There are roles for anyone of any comfort or skill level. Only two of the roles have speaking parts and the majority of the roles are as a member of part of a group. There is no need for any previous experience or specialized talent. Anyone of any faith who is grade eight or higher is welcome to serve as a re-enactor.
Get your community service hours!
A great many community service hours are available in these roles. In fact, almost all of the community service hours needed to graduate from an Ontario Secondary School are available for those who serve as an re-enactor in this celebration.
Re-enactors are expected to attend the rehearsals that take place on Friday's after school from 3:30pm till 6pm beginning on February 12th and ending on Good Friday, March 25th. Soldiers will have an additional rehearsal or two on a Saturday morning.
