Capernaum First Century Village Reprises “The Passover Experience” Event

North Texas Film Set, 100 Local Actors Provide “Living History”; DFW Area Easter Celebration at Capernaum First Century Village and Majestic Statue Garden Near Weatherford, TX

Weatherford, TX, March 18, 2015 --( Tammy Lane Productions, creators of Mission Reality and other Christian-based productions, is once again bringing an outdoor “Living History” walk through adventure to be hosted at its one-of-a-kind first century village called Capernaum, located near Weatherford in Peaster, TX.

This year’s “Passover Experience” is taking place March 27th through March 29th, and April 3rd through April 4th.

“Over the years, we’ve really been fortunate to grow and develop Capernaum into a really special place,” said Tammy Lane, creator of Capernaum Village. “That, combined with so many trained actors, makes for an event that’s as authentic as you’ll find anywhere.”

The Capernaum property, a creation of local writer and producer Tammy Lane, contains both Capernaum First Century Village and the Majestic Statue Garden. New additions have been made over the years, and to endure a larger crowd and a more complex event, the area has undergone millions of dollars’ worth of general construction. The village itself contains a number of single and multilevel stone structures designed and positioned much like they would have been in the first century.

As they witness the event, visitors will see that authenticity goes far beyond the village itself. Tammy’s team has hired almost 100 actors from the Dallas/Fort Worth area and beyond to help further the looks, sounds, and feels that would’ve been experienced in this first century village.

Guests will be ushered by tour guides back in time on the “Path of Plagues” as they experience some of the plagues on Egypt, events written in the Biblical book of Exodus that were part of the first Passover in which God freed his people from slavery.

As guests enter the village, they’ll experience the lively festivities of the Israelites celebrating the Passover in remembrance of how God freed their people from slavery hundreds of years before. Walking through the town, guests witness scenes that were common in the time period – interactions between Roman soldiers, villagers, tax collectors, rabbis. They’ll be invited into the robust stone dwellings of the village and learn what the Bible teaches of the feast as they experience families preparing for the Passover. Wrapping up the walkthrough, patrons will experience the highlight of the adventure: Going on to the upper room where they’ll observe an up-close and personal view of the reenactment of the actual Last Supper.

Outside of the village and path, guests will also have the opportunity to experience a few of the unique constructions located at Capernaum. Up the hill from the village sits a beautiful statue garden, with over 13 life-size statues designed by the late Korean sculptor Yon Sim Pak. In addition to Pak’s statues, the garden also contains a replica of a tomb, similar to one that Jesus was laid into. Next to the village sits the marketplace, which is located at the center of the property, and will contain food and refreshments from area restaurants, Rosa’s Café and Texas Burger.

The Seder Experience is another special offering of the event. Guests purchasing a Seder meal ticket will have the opportunity to learn of the significant elements of the Passover Seder feast along with taste samples.
