For these SoCal Passion plays, it’s more than just showing Christ’s death

Christian Escobar has been involved, in one form or another, with the annual Passion play at Christ the King Church in Hollywood since he was 4.

From watching his father sew the group’s first costumes, to playing the role of a centurion this year, Escobar has deep ties to the production, now in its 37th year.

For Escobar, the play is about more than just acting. It’s a way for him to mature in his faith, bond with the church community, and evangelize.

“Ever since I can remember I’ve enjoyed being a part of this,” said Escobar, now 42. “It’s something that I have grown to love and appreciate.”
