Mt. Zion Church presents "The Passion of Mary: The Crucifixion Through A Mother's Eyes," a multi-media theater production opening this weekend.

Pastor Loren Covarrubias wrote the play, telling the story of Easter through the perspective of Mary, mother of Jesus.

"A few years ago, my mother experienced the loss of her youngest child," Covarrubias said. "I was pierced by her cry in that hospital it was this sound that inspired me to be aware of the pain of the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, Mary, when she lost her son, yet her need to surrender him to the will of God."

The show, for ages 8 and older, features a large cast with video, live musicians, singers, and dancers.

Showtimes at Mt. Zion, 4900 Maybee Road, are April 15-17 and 22-23 at 7:30 p.m., with matinee at 2 p.m. on Good Friday, April 22.

Deaf Interpretation will also be provided on April 22, 7:30 p.m.

General admission is free at the door, which opens a half hour prior to show time. A free will offering will be taken. Seat reservations are available for $10. Call 248-409-1120.
