The Nauvoo Pageant is a beautiful Broadway quality outdoor stage performance 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.
The Nauvoo Pageant season features two amazing musical productions:
The Nauvoo Pageant: Held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays tells 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 British Pageant, “Truth Will Prevail,” held on Wednesdays and Fridays, 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 Nauvoo Pageant & the British pageants are based on actual journals and historic records from the 1800s.
