Sevier County residents can see the most inspiring dinner in the Smokies beginning Dec. 15 thru Dec 20. The Biblical Times Dinner Theater is offering their seven item feast of Biblical proportions and their show featuring state-of-the-art holographic technology at the low price of $19.95 for Sevier County residents. Local residents must provide a driver’s license or other proof of residence.
The Biblical Times Dinner Theater was the first theater in Tennessee to utilize holographic technology to bring to life Biblical characters that interact with live actors. The holograms have been utilized in the production of three shows at the theater. Using holograms, the BTDT have depicted, Moses, the Nativity and King David. The Biblical characters created by the holograms appear to speak to the live actors and are so life-like that many attendees have been left to wonder which characters are real and which are holograms.
The theater is presenting two shows this holiday season. The Christmas Show which depicts the birth of Christ is presented Mon-Sat.at 6 p.m. Moses Mountain of God which recreates the tale of the Exodus from Egypt is presented three times weekly at 2 p.m. on Tues, Thurs. and Saturday.
