“The Hill Cumorah Pageant,” Friend, June 2013, 14–15
Every summer, many children from all over the world come to the Hill Cumorah Pageant, an outdoor show about how the Book of Mormon came to be. But not all of these children come to watch the pageant. Some of them come with their families to be in it! They come from all over the United States—and from other countries too.
For 17 days, these children rehearse their parts. All the younger children are in the scene where Jesus Christ blesses the Nephite children. Older children can be in many other scenes. When they’re not rehearsing, the children spend time in the “Primary tent.” They do crafts, sing, and do activities that help them learn about the Book of Mormon.
On the nights of the performance, the children put on their costumes. Then they and their families talk to pageant visitors about Jesus Christ. Whatever their parts in the pageant are, all the children share what they learn about the Savior, the Book of Mormon, and the Restoration of the gospel.
