Scout Night at the Living Word Outdoor Drama

The Living Word Outdoor Drama, located at 6010 College Hill Road in Cambridge, Ohio, will be having a

SCOUT NIGHT on Friday, August 5, 2016.

All scouts in uniform will be admitted for ½ off admission, whether they are over 12 (regular price is $18, so they will be admitted for $9) or under 12 (regular price is $6, so they will be admitted for $3).

The Living Word asks that all scouts be in uniform to receive the special price. The box office opens at 6 p.m. There is a behind the scenes tour (by donation only) at 6:30 p.m.; a front set tour at 7 p.m. (included in ticket price); and the drama starts at 7:30 p.m.

The Living Word Outdoor Drama was founded in 1974 by Biblical Dramatist Frank Roughton Harvey. This nationally recognized drama brings to life the passion of Jesus Christ. The 400-foot panoramic set was researched and designed by the founder, making it an authentic representation of Old Jerusalem.

What a great way to remind your Christian Scouts of their Duty to God!
