What has changed with Peformance due to COVID-19
The Moogerah Passion Play has taken steps to comply with the COVID-19 and the Directives being enforced by Government and Health Departments.
Our Event is a TICKETED event to cater for numbers that we are allowed to have.
Placed signage for Hand Sanitation, Social Distancing, Fevers/Coughs around the site.
Refusing Entry if anyone is unwell.
Cleaning more frequently particularly high traffic areas. ie. door handles, sink tap handles/levers.
Seeking advice on the best practices to ensure we understand what is required of each individual whether they are part of our association / an attendee who watches the play. Which is collecting personal data that is required of Names, Phone number and email or postal address.
We will also have a COVID-19 Event Checklist/Plan which can be viewed by Request.
What are the performance times?
Gates open at 4pm. The performance runs from 5pm until approximately 8pm, with a 20-30 minute interval. Please check our home page for performance dates.
What is the length of the Performance?
The performance length is about 2-3 hours with a 20-30 minute interval.
What is the admission charge?
While admission is free, we do rely on donations. There are donation boxes located in the entrance complex should you wish to make a donation.
Do we need to move around to see the play?
A very common question as people have visited or watched other Passion Play production overseas and many involved having to move around to watch the play.
Our play is very different from theses as our site is purpose built to include all aspect of telling the story of Jesus Christ all at one location, you can see the Sea of Galilee, River Jordan, Calvary (Golgotha) and etc. So no need to move around as the actors/cast will move around the stage for you.
Is there plenty of parking?
What will I bring?
We have a grassy open-air amphitheatre so a rug or a chair, plus a cardigan/jumper. Water is also advisable, however water is available for purchase. We also advise bringing an umbrella in the unlikely event that it rains.
You may bring your own food.
Please note that no dogs are allowed, except service dogs.
Can I bring my dog?
We know that dogs are very important to a lot of people. But when it comes to the play, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
- We use animals in the play and the safety of these animals and cast members handling them or close to them during a performance is paramount. These animals are often very close to the audience and a dog in the audience could be the cause of injury to someone present during a performance.
- We have close to 3 500 people come to see the play. Over 2 000 of them attend our Good Friday performance. When that happens our auditorium is packed. We consider the safety and convenience of all members of the audience to be more important than any individual’s desire to have his or her dog present during the play.
- Part of the land we occupy is a reserve for fauna and flora where dogs are not allowed.
So please DO NOT bring your dog along.
Can I bring a hamper?
Can I purchase food?
Yes. Our catering facilities open at 4pm. Soup, hamburgers, sausages, soft-drinks, tea, coffee, slice and other assorted goodies are available for purchase for reasonable prices.
Is there plenty of space?
Our amphitheatre seats over 2,000, but as the Good Friday performance is very popular, we do encourage you to arrive early.
What happens if it rains?

About the organisers
Are you affiliated with any particular church?
No. We are autonomous. In fact we have had eleven different denominations in our cast.
How do you pay for the production?
We rely on donations, the food stall and commercial sponsorship.
Does the character playing the role of Jesus use words spoken that are not recorded in the Bible?
A further instance is in the dramatization of the Passover meal commonly known as the Last Supper. Luke 22 tells us Jesus offered a blessing. The words of the blessing are known as they are still used by Jews celebrating the Passover today. The words of the blessing are thus included in the script.
In all other respects, the words the actor speaks are from the Bible we use as the source text for the Play.
May I become a member of the cast?
By all means. About a third of our cast come from Brisbane. Ring Chris Young on 0499 277 763…
