Biblical Production ‘Damascus Road’ Opens at Picture in Scripture Amphitheater
“Damascus Road: Where Saul Becomes Paul, the Greatest Apostle of All Times” opens at Picture in Scripture Amphitheater Friday, June 29, and will run every Friday and Saturday evening through August 4.
Every summer, the amphitheater presents an original Biblical production. This year’s drama, “Damascus Road” features a cast of 60 actors, exotic live animals, including Simon, the camel, state-of-the-art surround sound, pyrotechnics and stunning special effects.
According to Linda Goldner, who co-founded Picture in Scripture Amphitheater with her husband, Bill, “Damascus Road” tells the story of Saul’s persecution of the early Church, and how the Lord spoke to his heart and changed him on the road to Damascus.
Goldner describes the production as a “pretty powerful story” that drew crowds during last year’s run. She expects this year to be even better.
Dinner and a Show
Offering a unique twist on dinner and a show, Picture in Scripture Amphitheater has been a Grand Lake tradition for more than 29 years.
The 1,000-seat outdoor amphitheater is located in the hills east of Disney.
An evening at the amphitheater starts with dinner served in the pavilion. The menu includes charbroiled hamburgers, grilled chicken, barbecue and catfish, as well as light concessions.
Meals are served from 6:30 until 8 p.m.
Youngsters and animal lovers will also want to visit the amphitheater’s petting zoo, which is open before every production from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For an extra fee of $3, visitors can go into the barn to see and pet exotic animals, including a zebra, kangaroos, a ring-tailed lemur and two North African Sulcata tortoises.
Simon the camel will also be in the barn, as well as several other animals from the production, including mini-horses and a donkey.
A musical pre-show starts at 8 p.m. and the play begins around sunset at 8:45 p.m. The show runs approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Tickets for “Damascus Road” are $14.25 for adults, while children 10 and under are free. Walk-ins are welcome; however, reservations are encouraged. Senior discounts and group rates for show tickets are available.
