The Trinity High School Senior Class is presenting the Living Stations of the Cross with narration, dialogue and music.
The Living Stations will be presented at 7 p.m. today and Wednesday in the THS auditorium. In addition, a spaghetti supper is being served from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
“It’s a way to give back to the community,” said volunteer director Dana Kostelecky. “It’s to set the tone for Easter, to get prepared for what Easter is really about.”
The public is invited and freewill donations are being accepted.
The script, written by Jesse Zyskowski, begins with the Last Supper and ends with the resurrection.
The 13 Stations of the Cross take Jesus from his sentence of death by Pontius Pilate through the scourging, crucifixion and death on the cross, said Kostelecky.
“It’s a prayerful evening. It’s a time to prepare yourself for what Easter is truly about,” she said.
Kostelecky said finding rehearsal times has been challenging because of the weather conditions, but she is certain it will go well.
“I feel the Holy Spirit will be there. He always guides us through it,” she said.
Several of the leading characters include Jon Marsh as Jesus, Katie Kostelecky as Mary, Jordan Selinger as John, Marie Franzen as Veronica, Clint Noethlich as Judas, Stevie Olson as Mary Magdalene, Brooks Thornson as Simon of Cyrene, Remington Barret as Pontius Pilate, Miranda Meier, the other Mary, Erik Arnold, the good thief, Jake Braunberger, the bad thief, Kaden Ficek as Satan, Shannon Ernst as the angel and Luke Fichter as Nicodemus..
“It really puts us at crucifixion — to actually see the suffering he went through,” said Katie Kostelecky.
“It’s really a spiritual production,” added Marsh. “It really brings out the preparations for his death — sorrowful when he’s dying and joyful when he has risen.”
