The Moss Bluff Pentecostals present Hosanna

By Amanda Ward - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - From the teachings and miracles of Jesus to his crucifixion and resurrection, the Moss Bluff Pentecostals are sharing the true meaning of Easter with hundreds of people this weekend.

"It's easy to become consumed by the Easter Bunny, and Easter Egg hunts, and those are all great for children, we have them around the church, but we want people to know is that Christ died and rose again for us," said the show's producer and music director, John Mahoney.

From the smallest of cast members to adults sharing their message is a rewarding experience.

"You put your mind into it, it's an experience for us. It gets your gears going. And you're like that really happened," said 18 year old cast member, Blaike Andreas.

"It's very special. It's overwhelming. There's no way to explain it really," said 10 year old cast member, Breanna Burkhead.

Portraying the role of Sadducee, Bryan Thompson said, "I don't consider myself an actor, but it's fun. It's definitely not the normal role for me to be dressed like this and acting in front of people, but it's a great experience, it really is."

From live animals and live music to extravagant effects the Moss Bluff Pentecostals are hoping their presentation of "Hosanna" will help the community understand what the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ means to the world.

The show runs through Sunday night.
