Mesa Pageant Called 'World's Largest Passion Play'

MESA, ARIZONA -- In its 63rd year, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' annual Mesa Temple pageant is believed to be the world's largest annual outdoor Easter Pageant. "Jesus the Christ," as the dramatic production is known, opened last Thursday, running through Saturday, and will also be performed from Tuesday through Saturday.

The 75-minute production includes a cast of more than 400 people and a variety of animals. Nearly 100 volunteers perform stage duties, and many others assist with costumes, makeup, construction, lighting, sound and security. The music for the pageant was written by Arizona composer Wanda West Palmer, and was performed by the Mormon Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Utah State University Chamber Singers.
