If the Passion Play closes, what would be a good alternate use of the property?

Jerry Lavender


"They should convert it into an outdoor music venue."

Pat Shaker

Chem Trail Watcher

"It would be a great place for the jazz festival."

Tim Riley

Career Counselor

"It is one of the things that makes this town so interesting. Maybe they could save the play by other uses for the area?"

Peter Braginton

Window Washer

"It would make either a great community center or a dog park."

Seanté Helms


"Concerts or family reunions."

Carol Meshell

Office Manager

"They should continue doing plays out there. There weather here is good and people love sitting outdoors."

  • It would make a great place for an amusement park for younger and older citizens as well. The fake Jesus, stolen railroad ties from the ES Railway and stucco painted white is a disgrace. Walk up to this thing and you see the cracks in the plaster. Everybody knows the beginning and the end, and its the same every night.

    This farce is far over-rated.

  • Cleaner: There you go, outdoor concerts and all kinds of amusements. Then rip that Jesus apart and return the stolen railroad ties which support the stucco to the ES Railway System.

  • Well, it's close enough to Caligula's Court anyway, annex it and officially make it part of Sodom and Gomorrah! Shake things up a bit!

  • I suggest this property be converted to an educational facility, similar in design and purpose to the Holocaust Museum in Washington,DC. This facility would have the purpose of telling the two thousand year history of the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who were put to death by hanging or burning, tortured, condemned by various Inquisitions forcibly converted, marginalized, exiled, and otherwise persecuted by an unholy alliance between religious and secular forces who claimed to be acting in the name of God and Christ. You'll never hear about this dark side in any Sunday School, so such a historical facility would serve an important purpose in presenting the truth.
