Residents Celebrate Resurrection of Jesus Christ with Passion Play

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Hundreds of Coastal Bend residents started their Easter morning at Cole Park to watch the story of Jesus come to life.

For 71 years, the Easter Sunrise Passion Play has portrayed the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
 
For some audience members, attending the play has become a family tradition.

One of the cast members, China Ross, says she can relate to her character who is healed by Jesus because she too has a disability.

"When I'm getting healed, it's something beautiful. He can really do that? Yes, He actually did," said Ross. "See people crying, it's like wow really touches them," said Ross.

The role of Jesus was played by Max Moorman.
