With Easter Week fast approaching the borough of Adeje is planning a full schedule of related events as well as making sure the 17 beaches and all of the tourist areas are in prime condition for what is a hugely busy holiday season. The religious side is also of prime concern, with solemn processions and masses taking place over the coming weeks.
One of the most popular and eagerly awaited Adeje-based events is the street performance of the last days, trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ which takes place along the Adeje Calle Grande on Good Friday (April 14th). This event is now considered one of the key Easter events nationally.
With almost the entire cast made up of amateurs, members of the Adeje public are, as always, invited to participate and join the cast of hundreds. According to the Adeje councillor for creative development, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, the number taking part increases every year and this year they are expecting the same – so they are calling on anyone interested to sign up now. There will be a number of rehearsals and costumes and props are supplied by the council.
To participate you would need to have some Spanish, and if you have children who would like to be in the theatrical work, those under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The form that needs to be filled in is on the council webpage, www.adeje.es
