A save-a-seat campaign is in place with donation levels ranging from $250 to $1,000.

Donors receive their name on seats at the venue and receive two season passes for 2013.

There is a push to educate the public on other attractions on the grounds like a Bible museum and the Christ of the Ozarks statue.

Prices have been cut to make the event more affordable. A redesigned website with an online purchasing system is also expected to help the cause.

“We need the Great Passion Play,” Butler said.

“It’s good for Eureka Springs and the local economy. It’s good for people’s faith. We’re in a much better position now than we were in before. Still, we know there has been a disconnect between us and our patrons. We’re trying to fix that. People need some hope in their lives. That’s what has kept me here all these years.”
