TBN's Holy Land Experience Receives Endorsement From Producer of Faith-and-Family Cinema Hits “Home Run,” “End of the Spear”
ORLANDO, FLA. (October 12, 2013) — More great news for the Holy Land Experience, Trinity Broadcasting Network's exclusive family vacation destination in Orlando, Florida. As reported on October 10th, the Bible-based family park has been nominated for several Brass Ring Awards, given annually by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) to the top family entertainment venues around the world for the best in live entertainment. Now a major entertainment professional and good friend of Holy Land Experience has weighed in on the honor.
Hollywood moviemaker Tom Newman, producer of faith-and-family favorites like The End of the Spear, Home Run, and the upcoming holiday film The Christmas Candle, sent his enthusiastic congratulations for the nominations to Holy Land Experience President Jan Crouch, along with the park's entire creative staff. “Please congratulate Jan and her amazing team of performers,” wrote Mr. Newman of the nominations. “This is a big deal and very noted by the theme park industry.”
Mr. Newman pointed out that the nominations represent “great bragging rights” for Holy Land Experience — “or in this case 'praising rights' for what God has done and is doing at Holy Land Experience. We are proud of our team!”
Mike Everett, Manager of the Holy Land Experience, said that endorsements from professionals like Mr. Newman mean a lot. “Tom knows the time, resources, and incredible effort that go into excellence in any avenue of performance,” said Everett. “We appreciate very much his words of encouragement and affirmation.”
Two of Holy Land Experience's most popular musical dramas, The Passion and The Four Women Who Loved Jesus, have been nominated for Brass Ring Awards in separate categories for Best Overall Production. In addition, two of the park's valued team members have been nominated for Brass Ring honors in individual categories: Whitney Lynn Rivera, who appears in many Holy Land Experience productions, for Best Female Performer; and Angie Williams, a longtime wardrobe and costume designer at Holy Land Experience, for the Brass Ring's coveted Spirit Award.
Mr. Everett said that the nominations represent “a very big honor because we are a finalist alongside some of the industry's biggest attractions, including Dollywood, Six Flags, Busch Gardens, Disneyland Park, SeaWorld, and even Universal Studios Japan. It really is a testament to the quality, creativity, and audience impact that our live theatrical productions have maintained over the years.”
Situated in the heart of the nation’s most popular vacation spot, Holy Land Experience offers an unforgettable adventure that immerses visitors in the sights, sounds, historical time frames — and impacting truths — of the Bible. With its colorful and realistic recreations of ancient Israel, exciting dramatizations of favorite Bible stories, and awe-inspiring musical productions, Holy Land Experience has become a must-see attraction for individuals, families, and groups from across America and around the world.
Winners of the honors will be announced at the 2013 Brass Ring Awards ceremony, held November 20th at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida.
