The Mormon Miracle Pageant is an annual production retelling the story of Joseph Smith and his followers. Joseph Smith is considered by the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS or Mormons) to be a prophet of God. The story tells how Joseph translated the Book of Mormon, a record of ancient inhabitants of the Americas which was inscribed on gold plates, and follows the struggles of Joseph Smith and his followers through persecution and their travels west to settle in the Sanpete Valley of the Utah territory. The pageant was first produced in 1967 as a local effort, based on a 1950 book The Mormon Miracle. Today, a cast of over 500 reenacts events important to the story. The Pageant is held “under the stars”, and is free. The presentation takes place at the foot of the Historic Manti Temple, with 14,000 chairs provided.
