Passion play is essentially Btc. From the land of Wag- *nd of Grim it comes to us. dare not say the Passion Play created, rather it has actually i from a crude beginning. Cen- df tradition and development b«hlnd it. In the early stages 1 production, the processional and atform method was used. It rig back anjd forth between best two ways of presentation, un It actually supplemented the .tlonary miracle plays of Med- I leval times. Down through the ages the r church and secred drama have gone • hand In hand. As early as the • fifth century, drama was used by ' the clergy to increase the attractlve- JI0M Of worship. Living pictures . MettRttttnied with beautiful music wu brought forth on special occasion* to order to more illustrate the Bible narratives. Doting the middle ages the law regulated who and what class ol people could take part In biblical drama. At first only the clergy- wen acted the leading roles, but as the laymen became a part of the blftyn, the native language replaced Latin* causing some changes in the original text. In the year 1378 Richard n was petitioned by the church authorities) to forbid all people taking part In such drama who wer* not sympathetic with rellg ion* Meals. This decree was grant- ad and during that period the Luen- en Passion Play became a perm- anent factor In the dramatic world. It has been given intermittently ever since in Luenen, sometimes by the Monks of the Monastery and more often by laymen. Since that time many towns and villages in Germany and Austria have produced the Passion Play. As then, today biblical drama IS being used to a great extent throughout the world. The Luenen Passion Play comes to Mason City with all its old world tradition and artistry. It is now presented on the modern American stage with wonderful effect. It has not lost any of its charm and religious beauty. Mammoth scenes are created blending one Into the other keeping the continuity of the age-old story of the cross intact. Superb lighting Is used.
