The Bridge’ rises at East Hill Easter weekend

How far would you go for love? That’s the central question at the heart of “The Bridge,” the multimedia Easter production that Gresham’s East Hill Church is staging March 29-31 at 701 N. Main Ave.

The setting of this year’s story is a railroad bridge station, where a loving father and his son, Josh, find themselves faced with the ultimate choice that affects countless lives, including a troubled young woman caught in a destructive spiral.

“Easter’s always such a big deal around East Hill,” said director Jeff Schroeder. “We always go all out with our productions, but what always stands out are the stories that are told. This year’s story comes from a very deep place and really speaks to the truth and hope of Easter.”

“The Bridge” runs at 7 p.m. Friday, March 29; 6 p.m. Saturday, March 30; and 9:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Sunday, March 31. For more information, visit easthill.org/easter or call 503-661-4444.
