In 2022 Paul was cast as Jesus with The Poole Passion for
their production of 'Footsteps'.

"Mesmerising" and "Phenomenal".
The Poole Passion is a grand production and was featured on BBC 'Songs of Praise'
and have performed a play every 2 years since 2008.
They have a strict policy of casting a new actor as Jesus for each production,
but after his performance in 2022, Paul was very honoured to be the first actor
ever to be asked play Jesus again (in 2024).
