CAMBRIDGE -- The 41st year of The Living Word Outdoor Drama kicks off in 2015
“We try, each year, to improve the facilities at the amphitheater,” said Annette Ellwood. “In April, 210 stadium seats will be installed. We are grateful for those who contributed to the seating campaign and hope you plan to share an evening with us this summer.”
The outdoor drama begins June 19 and continues through Sept. 26. Located at 6010 College Hill Rd., the show begins at 7:30 p.m. every Friday and Saturday. Over 100 people from the surrounding communities fill roles both on stage and behind the scenes. Many of the volunteers have been a part of The Living Word since the opening in 1974.
In addition to the banquet and outdoor drama, The Living Word amphitheater provides the venue for other shows throughout the year.
