The Holy Land Experience, a Christian theme park in Orlando, Florida, will lay off most of its staff as it restructures on a corporate level, according to reports.
Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) announced in a notice that this transition would eliminate 118 jobs as of April 18. Each will receive a severance package plan. Positions that will be eliminated include dancers, actors, media specialists, musicians, guest service associates and food servers.
The Holy Land Experience is known for its daily reenactments of biblical moments, including the crucifixion, the Last Supper and more. In January, TBN announced that the focus of the theme park would shift to be more educational as it retains the Scriptorium—its biblical museum—and other exhibits that highlight religious figures. In doing so, it will end its regular theatrical performances and entertainment.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, tickets to the Holy Land Experience cost $50, and the theme park will no longer offer annual passes or group rates.
