Passover Experience nearby

By CHRISTIN COYNE

Those who are looking for a more immersing and interactive Easter experience than a typical passion play or Easter service this year can find it at The Passover Experience near Poolville.

Set in a replica of the first century village of Capernaum, originally built as a filming set, the biblical stories come to life during a guided walk that spans the first Passover described in the Book of Exodus to the Last Supper of Jesus before his crucifixion.

Village tours, consisting of about 15 people, depart every 20 minutes, and guests are escorted through the dramas staged in different houses and locations.

It’s not just a play but a sensory experience, as well, with visitors who travel down the Path of Plagues going through a hail storm, the plague of darkness and other plagues preceding the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.

From interactions with Roman tax collectors to climbing a set of stairs into an upper room where Jesus’ last Passover is taking place, visitors will get a chance to step into the time period and world of the Bible.

“It just kind of brings home the story,” said Tammy Lane, the woman who has put the event together.

About 100 people, including actors and crew, are making the location’s third Passover event a reality, and they have been rehearsing for about two months.

The tour and short video ending the production are not the only things guests can do. At the village market, visitors can take advantage of activities and food sold for lunch.

Visitors can also take a leisurely stroll through a symbolic garden with statues and replicas commemorating Biblical events from Noah’s Ark to King David to the resurrection of Jesus.

A Passover Seder is served during every hour of the production, as well, according to Lane.
