2020 is our 97th consecutive season. The American Passion Play of Bloomington, Illinois was conceived by Delmar D. Darrah to show the life and ministry of Christ. Although this is one of the oldest continuously performed Passion Plays in the United States, it is not a static drama. The production has changed to reflect modern historical knowledge of the era. The Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts (formerly the Bloomington Scottish Rite Temple) is the home of the American Passion Play.
