Candlelight Processional an Epcot holiday tradition

Posted Friday, December 18, 2009 12:36 PM | Contributed by Jeff

At Epcot, the Processional is elevated by a stage that offers evocative lighting and colorfully decorated wings that allow the six herald trumpeters to blow fanfares almost literally above the heads of the audience members. And the presence of the Voices of Liberty, out of Epcot's American Experience, elegantly embellishes the power of the massive choir.

We saw it a couple of weeks ago with John O'Hurley reading. It was the J.Peterman show! Pretty awesome array of talent there. My inner theater geek was impressed with the light plot as well.

It never occurred to me that there wasn't much of a "processional" with people walking across the midway. You certainly wouldn't know sitting in the seating area beyond them coming in from the side of the stage.

Back in the day I performed in one of these and it was a great time. I believe our reader was Rita Moreno. The array of readers throughout the season is always exciting. What a neat tradition! I'm assuming it still snows over the audience?

I'm pretty sure the entire snow budget is now allocated to the Osborne Family Christmas light show at the studio park.
