HILL CUMORAH PAGEANT RETURNS FOR ITS 81ST PERFORMANCE
Palmyra, NY July 3, 2018 - What other Western New York event features a free performance with hundreds of performers, a massive stage and amazing outdoor special effects? That's right - the annual Hill Cumorah Pageant, the oldest and largest outdoor theatrical productions in America, is back in its 81st year of production.
The Hill Cumorah Pageant evolved from a small production using car headlights to light the stage to a Western New York tradition. With water features, explosions, earthquakes and balls of fire, the Hill Cumorah Pageant is not your average summer event. It's a must-see, free event that appeals to all ages.
"I hear from so many people who've said they've always wanted to go but never have," said Neil Pitts, pageant president. "It's a wonderful family experience. We'd like people to come and experience the grandeur of the performance and have special feelings their hearts as they watch these scenes from the Bible and Book of Mormon. We want people to walk away with a sense that this was an awesome experience. If you've always wanted to come, this is the year!"
The annual pageant kicks off its week of performances Fri., July 13 at dusk. The pageant, which is free and family-friendly, is a theatrical miracle. More than 750 volunteers are cast into 1,200 roles within hours of arriving. After just one week of rigorous rehearsals, the show opens. Volunteers in the performance and on staff come to Western New York at their own expense from around the world. They do not come to Palmyra just to practice their sword fighting skills and learn dances, or to wear costumes and wigs in the humid New York summer. For these people, this is a time of spiritual renewal in the cradle of their faith. In addition to rehearsals, the cast also squeezes in more than 1,800 hours of volunteer service in Wayne, Ontario and Monroe counties.
Presented annually by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 1937, the pageant is a theatrical representation of scenes from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Performances by the all-volunteer cast are July 13-14 and 17-21 and begin nightly at 9 p.m. There is seating provided for 5,000 guests with total seating for 9,000. Visitors will again be able to don retired pageant costumes for photo booth pictures. Food is provided on-site by local service groups. Food tents open at 5 p.m. The Hill Cumorah is located on Highway 21, two miles north of Interstate 90, Exit 43. Parking and admission are free. Headsets are provided for Spanish translation, and American Sign Language interpretation is provided.
