ORLANDO, Fla. – The Holy Land Experience in Orlando will undergo some changes this spring ending theatrical productions and entertainment at the Christian-based theme park.

Trinity Broadcasting Networks said in a news release Wednesday that starting on April 19, the theme park with nonprofit status will focus more of its efforts on highlighting the Biblical museum, The Scriptorium, and history-changing religious figures.

“This is not The Holy Land closing it’s doors for good,” said Nathan Daniels, TBN’s Marketing Director. “This is just pivoting back to it’s orginial intention and reassessing how we want to use the property moving forward.”

Daniels told News 6 all theatrical shows will end on April 18. Due to the changes performers will be laid off but he couldn’t give an exact number of employees. Based on a performer’s tenure they will set up to six months severance pay.

“The exact number of people who are being let go are still influx,” Daniels said. “What I can say is that we care deeply about the team members who have been with us at The Holy Land Experience and we are offering generous severance packages.”
