The Nauvoo Pageant celebrates the legacy of the early Latter-Day Saints.

Narrated by Parley P. Pratt, the pageant emphasizes the prophetic mission of Joseph Smith and honors the sacrifice, faith and courage of the Saints who gave their all to build a city and a temple to their God.

The pageant is filled with authentic hymns and folksongs, lively dances and tender moments that share the joy these early Saints found in living Christ's gospel. Through words taken from journals, sermons and historic records of the period, the pageant invites all to feel the powerful testimonies of these faithful Saints.
