A cast and crew of more than 1,100 volunteers will bring early Mormon history in the US and England to life in two musical productions—the Nauvoo Pageant and the British Pageant. Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays feature the Nauvoo Pageant, which tells the story of early Latter-day Saint Church members who, in 1839, fled to Nauvoo to escape religious persecution. The British Pageant, “Truth Will Prevail,” runs Wednesdays and Fridays, telling the history of early Mormonism in the British Isles. The faith, devotion, and sacrifice of the nineteenth-century British Mormons helped make possible the flourishing religious community that was established in Nauvoo. Both pageants feature scripts based on actual journals and historic records from the 1800s, as well as traditional and original music, unique sets, and impressive choreography.
