Janet Wright, who is the production coordinator with her husband Roger, said there are three nights left for guests to experience the Revelation Walk, tonight and Oct. 25-26.
Revelation Walk is held on a mountain behind Eden Westside Baptist Church, 223 Wolf Creek Road North, Pell City. The production is from 7-10:30 p.m. on each of the three nights remaining.
Wright said Friday night the church will have sign language interpreters on hand to guide guests through the Revelation Walk.
“This is the first time we’ve done that,” she said.
Wright, who along with her husband has headed productions of Revelation Walk for the past three years, said the church has held the event for many years.
“This is our 14th year,” she said.
Revelation Walk is a drama that presents the Book of Revelation, so people can understand it.
The production takes hundreds of church volunteers to make it a success. Church volunteers consist of not only actors and actresses, but also guides, parking attendants, security, ticket sales, counseling and concessions.
“We have about 350 people (volunteers),” Wright said. “A lot of people do more than one thing. It’s our biggest ministry in our church.”
Revelation Walks draws big crowds, between 2,000-3,000 guests each year from a wide area.
“In one group, we had someone from Boston,” Wright said. “We had another person from Florida.”
Wright said if people have more than five or six people in their group, they should make reservations through the church, although Eden Westside Baptist Church welcomes walk-ups.
She said Revelation Walk touches people.
“We have people of all ages come through,” Wright said.
She said it is suggested that participants be older than 10 years of age.
“We have entertainment in the parking lot and give-aways, while people wait their turn for the Revelation Walk,” Wright said.
There is a $5 donation for guests who participate in the program.
Wright said the money raised is used for next year’s production.
She also said there is a new Revelation Walk Trail.
“The trail changed in 2010,” Wright said.
Wright said the church begins planning for the Revelation Walk as early as January. Actors and actresses are provided scripts in July, and the church starts dress rehearsals in September.
She said guests should wear a good pair of walking shoes.
