The 2018 Nauvoo Pageant preparations are underway. The beautiful theatrical outdoor stage performance is put on each summer in beautiful Nauvoo, Illinois by a cast and crew of over 1,100 people. The legacy of early Latter-day Saints in Nauvoo is told through song, dance, music and acting. The Pageant season brings historical vignettes in Old Nauvoo and the 1840s Frontier Country Fair as a fun and exciting part of the pageant's pre-show activities.
Nauvoo Pageant Dates 2018: July 11-August 5 (excluding Sundays and Mondays)
The 2018 Nauvoo Pageant season will feature two amazing musical productions:
The 2018 Nauvoo Pageant: Will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays - telling the story of early Latter-day Saint Church members who first settled the City of Nauvoo in 1839. It's full of music, singing, funny moments and a few tear jerkers. You'll love the entire performance.
The 2018 British Pageant, “Truth Will Prevail,” held on Wednesdays and Fridays, and tells the history of early Saints in the British Isles. With delightful music and acting that will touch your heart and put a smile on your face, you'll learn the true stories of some very amazing families that made the hard sacrifice to come to America and follow their faith.
Both the 2018 Nauvoo Pageant & the British pageants are based on actual journals and historic records from the 1800s. You experience both traditional period music and dancing as well as amazing original music. Thousands visit Nauvoo each year to enjoy both performances. While in Nauvoo your family can also take free wagin rides around the old Nauvoo historic town - experience period blacksmith and tin shops - visit the old Times & Seasons newspaper press or take you whole family to the Family living center for pioneer games and crafts: ALL FREE.
2018 is a great year to come see beautiful Nauvoo.
