The open session will be held Sunday, March 18 at 2 pm at the Minetto United Methodist Church. The upcoming 12-day trip will be Sivers third time attending the Passion Play; this time taking in not only the Passion Play, but visits to Berlin, Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Vienna, Salzburg and Munich and more.
The Passion Play at Oberammergau is world famous, and has been part of the theater and religious history of the small German town since 1634 when villagers first performed the play in response to answered prayers to be spared the ravages of the plague. With only a few exceptions, the play has been staged every ten years since. The play is performed from May through October, has a cast and crew of over 2000 local residents staged in a theater that seats 4700.
The information session will include a power point photo show of locations to be visited and a discussion of the trip. Sivers previously has visited most of the locations either on his own or on tours. “This will be an exciting trip, and one that participants will never forget,” said Sivers. “If you love history, architecture, and art, this is an experience you will remember forever.” The session is open to anyone interested and no registration is required.
The Minetto United Methodist Church is located at the intersection of Routes 48 and 8 and is fully handicap accessible. Anyone seeking more information can contact Sivers at 315-341-4712 or by email at [email protected]
