No seats could be found inside the sanctuary at Wrightsboro Baptist Church for its annual Living Cross Easter drama on Sunday (April 1).

And the centurions were getting restless — standing outside the church

practicing their most menacing “Grrrs” while waiting for their parts at the end of the drama following Jesus Christ’s life, ministry, death and resurrection.

But the 3-month-old actor playing Baby Jesus just slept serenely through his part in the spotlight.

The performance features a 50-member choir singing 19 songs and standing inside a huge cross-shaped choir loft on stage overlooking the drama of Jesus’ life below.

The drama’s cast is also huge including about 100 community members.

The free Living Cross performances continue at 7:30 p.m. on April 3 and April 6 at the church, 2736 Castle Hayne Road.
