The Catholic Media Office has two pairs of Family Tickets for "THE GREATEST STORY EVERY TOLD" Scotland s outdoor passion play, on The Life of Jesus Christ, which will run at Dundas Castle, South Queensferry from 8th to 12th June 2005.  

The tickets are for the performance on Thursday 9 June. To enter, just subscribe to our Text Alert service by 5pm on Monday 6 June and you will be automatically entered in the draw. To subscribe, just text SCMO to 84880 or go to and join from there. Alerts are free.  

If you are already a subscriber ask a friend to join, all they need to do is text SCMO plus YOUR mobile number to 84880 by 5pm on Monday 6 June.  

The play unfolds over four hours as the audience is guided around the grounds of the estate, following the players. Superior audio technology ensures that all in the audience can hear every word and musical note. From the nativity, to the baptism, and from the last supper to the crucifixion, open woodlands, the loch, the walled gardens and the old icehouse all play their part. The cast of 100 mostly local actors work with real animals, real fires (and the weather), all of which combine to create a truly spectacular event.  

Cutting Edge Theatre Director, Suzanne Lofthus is in charge, marshalling and inspiring the cast. The local talent is supported and invigorated by the involvement of a few household names, notably Rod Christensen, of Balamory fame, and Tarik Makarem, one of the RSAMD s leading lights.  

As Scotland s Premier Outdoor Theatre Event, the Life of Jesus Christ is not to be missed.
