Scott, try Contemporary Drama Service. They publish straight and musical plays for primary through adult, religious and secular. In my school the 4th grade does an assembly dramatizing the Stations. If this is your target age range, I can share what we've put together on our own.

John, please look at www.wallacedepue.com and see if you see what you're trying to find.  If something looks interesting to you, I'll send you a pdf and an mp3.

St. Martin's Chamber Choir produced a CD of the Stations of the Cross. By and large, the music is not new, but it is an excellent CD and good for contemplation. It is called: It Is Finished.

English?  Latin?  ...

I heard a work by Mark Hayes (Te Deum) that used both Latin and English. The way he used it was quite effective.
