Easter Passion Play rehearsals begin this weekend. Here's how to be a part of the tradition.

The 81st Easter Sunrise Passion Play will be on April 9 on the Corpus Christi Bayfront.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — For 80 years, Corpus Christi residents have gotten up before dawn on Easter Sunday to go to the Corpus Christi Bayfront to watch the Easter Sunrise Passion Play. It's a "stunning depiction" of the life of Jesus Christ.
