British Pageant

British_pageant

The recent British Pageant focused on the history of the Church in the British Isles; it was written and performed by members from around the United Kingdom. It ran for 10 performances over two weeks, and was attended by three Apostles (http://www.lds.org/church/news/church-leaders-attend-stunningly-moving-british-pageant?cid=HP080813060&lang=eng). This was the first pageant outside the United States, and hopefully will continue to run yearly. We were not able to go as it is outside our mission and several hours away, but many of the members went to see it. It is an exciting as missionaries came to the British Isles in the 1830s to spread the gospel. There were 52,000 new members who left here and emigrated to Utah to bolster the young church.
