A TRALEE based drama group is putting the final touches to an Easter pageant which will take place on Good Friday.

The ‘Tralee Parish Liturgy Drama Group’ has been preparing for several weeks now for their ‘Good Friday Pageant’ which will be taking place at St John’s  the Baptist Church, in Castle Street at 3pm and which will then move onto the Church of St Stephen and St John at 8pm in Castleisland that night.

The night will feature re-enactments of various scenes from the Bible with the group rehearsing diligently in preparation for their enactment of Christ’s Passion and Crucifixion which will form part of the Good Friday Ceremonies.

The 30 plus performers are being put through their paces to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. They will be supported by St John’s Choir under the direction of Michael O’Shea.

Everyone is encouraged to try and attend the shows at either churches and for those who do attend, it is encouraged to get there early to get a seat.
