Once again, the small town of Manti anticipates thousands of visitors during the month of June to view the popular Mormon Miracle Pageant. Now in its 50th season, the pageant is preparing for production with a multi-generational cast, including infants and great-grandparents. Over 1,000 cast members, along with support crews, lighting and sound crews, will begin rehearsals next week.

The Mormon Miracle Pageant tells three intertwined stories. First is the story of Joseph Smith, prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The second revolves around the Book of Mormon, translated by Joseph Smith, and is a record of the people who lived on the North American continent hundreds of years ago. The third story tells of the Latter-day Saints’ journey west to Utah and the Sanpete Valley. With its diverse story line and colorful costumes, this is a production that appeals to all ages.

The pageant begins at dusk (about 9:30 p.m.) and will run June 16 through the 25, except Sunday and Monday. The gates open at 6 p.m. and admission is free. Language translation services are available.

Special activities planned during the 50th season celebration include cast reunions, a historical display of pageant costumes through the years, as well as firesides and concerts most evenings before the pageant. All activities are free and open to the public. A complete schedule is available at www.mormonmiracle.org. Just click on “50th Season Celebration.”

Plan to bring your family to Manti for an evening under the stars during the month of June. For more information on the Mormon Miracle Pageant, go to www.mormonmiracle.org.
